It would be pretty rare at 19 to have a heart blockage. It takes the wrong diet and many years to get to that point. I would believe in your doctor saying it's all anxiety caused. It may be more muscular skeletal pain that you are feeling because of being so skinny. You don't have enough muscle mass and so in exercising it's bone against bone and nerves.

Did the doctor say you should be exercising in being so thin?? As for one hand being colder than the other, sometimes that because of a pinches nerve in your shoulder or neck area. If it continues, there are nerve conduction tests that you can have done to see if that is causing the colder hand, but it is not a heart issue. xx
