Hi This is Dr Stan and I will assist you today. The fact that you had normal ekg, labs and xray suggests that your discomfort is not related to a heart attack. Trying to relax until you see the cardiologist is difficult, but it is the best thing for you. Try taking some herbal tea like chamomile at night before going to bed. Slow deep breathes will also help relax you. Melatonin is an over the counter herbal that also helps to relax so you can sleep. I hope this helps you until you see your cardiologist and your fears can be relieved. I am here for you should you have any additional questions.
