extreme heart anxiety - please help

how do I get over this anxiety? I know a lot of peoples anxiety is from this because it stems from panic attacks where you think you are having a heart attack - I have had every check and they all came back fine, however I cannot help but check it, sometimes feels harder sometimes feels irregular, I cant stop it - its become an addiction, I have started walking 2 miles to work and the whole time I was focusing on my heart - it scares the life out of me. Also when I eat and get full it makes me check the heart and even when I am starving it makes me check my heart, all day long I worry about an impeding heart attack :( how do I get rid of this.

This is my whole life....my heart. Its crazy because I have no markers within my family, I have had every test known to man, seen a prominent cardiologist and still take my damn pulse alllllll day and freeze if I even think I feel anything or have a pain... Its a complete and total fixation!! I also feel almost better when I do not eat.., weird. I also suffer with palpitations (terrifying) and cannot take beta blockers because I have a slow heart rate...yeah.. I am so sorry my friend.
