Stress Test

I went to the doctor after having a "heaviness" or "tightness" in my chest for a week or so.  I also had developed a slight shortness of breath and a feeling of being flush.  The doctor admitted me to the hospital to check my blood levels to see if I had had a heart attack.  I had not. I have had two sets of chest xrays done and they show nothing as well.  I went in for a stress test and it appeared to be "abnormal".  I went in for an angiogram and the doctor assures me that my heart is in excellent shape except for a very small blockage.  I continue to have the tightness in my chest and the feeling of being flush.  I have a blood pressure of 100 over 60 and a pulse of 72.  I have had no other problems in the past.  I am at a loss as to where to go next.  Could all of the testing and procedures be taxing my system?
