Almost every day someone posts a similar story. No one has yet posted to say they have ever had any heart problems though.

This is Health anxiety

Take some reassurance in this that it is your brain misleading you and your heart is fine

I have similar fears to yours. I am working hard to accept them and to find lifestyle changes to help such as walking.

I worry about this every day, too. Same as you, I've had ekgs and blood tests done, and i'm normal. Everytime I think I'm having a heart attack, I just tell myself that if I was going to have one, it would've already happened.

i feel you. i couldn't sleep last night because i thought i was going to have a stroke :/ if going to the cardiac will make you feel better, then definetly go. i hope you feel better! i think you might just be having panic attacks. anxiety takes the shape of our biggest fears.

Why not devote your time and efforts at anxiety management as this is the likely cause?
