Heaviness in chest and short of breath

My husband had two catheter ablations done.  Has felt fine as far as those issues are concerned.  However, since he had his last ablation in March of 2006 he has had a tight feeling in his chest, has trouble catching his breath and is constantly on edge feeling because of it.  Every now and then he has a severe pain and it goes all down his side, arm, leg.  He has had numerous tests, nuclear and exercise stress tests, a battery of ecg, ekg, ultrasound, and has been told he has a very healthy strong heart.  No blockage, nothing.  He exercises every day and is possibly 5 pounds overweight, not much.  He did have an episode in 2007 where everything went dark and his heart stopped and then did a big jolt and then starting beating normally again.  Had an tracking device implanted and it was just removed this year and showed nothing on it over the past 2 years.  Anyone have any suggestions or advice?  Poor guy feels like he is going nuts with this.
