Unfortunately, I think you are better off in a general cardiology forum. This forum is specific to pulmonary hypertension.
I am sorry that you continue to experience these symptoms despite your otherwise reassuring test results. I suggest that you find a primary care physician who you trust. He/she should then be able to help you sort out what is going on.
