Hello doctor,

I got mild pain in the chest. I consulted a doctor, and he did ECG, ECHO, TMT, and blood tests. The results turned out to be expected. But in ECG, some mild variation was seen due to BP. I am taking a BP tablet. I also have cholesterol. The doctor said that the reason for my pain was anxiety and acidity. Still, I have some chest pain and backache. I am really worried that I might get a heart attack or fat deposition in my heart.

Would you please go through my reports and advice?

Thank you.
