Ok so I went to my cardio dr yesterday , because I had chest dull ache for days, burning upper part of chest, backache, no jaw or arm pain or sob

She had me do a stress test, I did not have the right shoes. So I ran barefoot, so without shoes it hits hard and lots of wiggle lines on the EKG reading, so they took the very begging and when I reached my 85 percent heart rate dr wanted they sudden stoped the treadmill I stood very still and they used that,

Is that test good enought, little confused, I was on there 10:34 with no chest pains , or anything like that, but just unsure it was a good test and should I ask for a do over, what ya think,

Heart dr said it looked good no problems

Sounds like you passed the test with no problems. As long as they got to get a reading of your heart while working hard, then that's fine. You reached the target rate and had no discomfort which is also great. Sounds like your 'ticker' is doing well. At least when you stood still they remembered to turn off the machine. I was halfway through my test and got chest pains, so I screamed "shut it off". They said ok stop and relax which I did but the machine was still rolling along, so I flew backwards across the room. I guess it was one way to get the ECG leads off.

they said the messed up hum artifacts what they call them was from my feet hitting so hard on the treadmill and it not reading good, but i did get heart beat up to the 85 percent and than stood still so she could get a good reading.  , it was a stress treadmill test no pictures,   i did have a echo in feb where they look at heart it was good

I assume you had an Echo Stress Test and not a Nuclear one. I am sure the "wiggle lines" you are referring to had nothing to do with you walking barefoot (I had them too up to the point were the ECG became unreadable and I have as yet found nobody that could/would explain this to me) and they stopped the test because you had reached your prescribed heart rate of 140 BPM - so nothing wrong with that.
