“All normal! all blood work normal"......".my cardiologist thinks i have a clogged heart artery"      
What else your cardiologist ordered? What test? Based on what he said you have a clogged heart artery he thinks, he MUST do more , order more tests TO BE SURE, NOT just talk to the air. It is irresponsible.

If you have a blocked artery then I would have thought it would show on a stress test.
Have they tested your blood for lack of certain metals, such as potassium or magnesium?
A blood test for platelets, red cells and white cells is not really sufficient. Have they checked thyroid function?
