Chest pains, fast heart rate and difficulty breathing

In march 2010 while sitting relaxing experienced chest pain,dizziness,arm going numb/stiff,heart rate 150 and difficulty breathing.lasted 10 minutes.visited er on number of occasion .had stress test,ekg. everything came back normal.heart racing not as bad ,but still get chest pain/spasms all the time and scared i'll die. i now have sore stomach,bloating and constipation.this has been going on for over a year now and none knows what it is. Could this be some bug I got back in Thailand manifested? im desperate for memory is not as good as it was a year ago when all this started. please help me,whats wrong with me?

All these things need to be checked, best confirmed by another consultation with a cardiologist. If all tests came back as normal, you might ask to have them repeated since they are now a year old.

If still negative including problems with your lungs and GI tract, other causes of chest pain and palpitations should be considered,
