Heart & Cardiology/heart failure??

I also have these EXACT same symptoms! I have had many echo's and EKG's and all have come back basically normal. I have approx. 10,000 extra heart beats a day and an irregular heart beat, but I've seen 2 cardiologists now and neither seem too concerned. I have purple nails, chest pains, stabbing ones at that. I am always worried I could have heart failure. I just did  a stress echo and results came back negative, but I too get winded easily and my heart beats so hard it moves me when sitting as well. I work out regularly, eat healthy, and am a great weight for my height. I hope you've found something else out by now... I feel I'm getting nowhere fast with answers either.
