Scared of having heart attack

I'm at a loss of what to do... I'm constantly worrying lately that I'll have a heart attack at some point (even now thinking I'll jinx myself saying it), I've had 3 ECGs from June last year and the end of Nov was my last one. All fine, but I tell myself they're only for detecting past problems, not future. I thought it would give me peace of mind but after a month the doubts and worries are back, and i sonetimes feel like i get an ache (but I should note I'm on tablets for too much acid reflux).

Can someone help with pointers as I'm sick of worrying about the future and it's really getting me down...

If your not having any other symptoms. Trust the test and the doctors. I know how you feel. I’ve had multiple test on my heart but I still worry about it. Also your acid reflux could cause heart like symptoms. Hope you feel better soon!

I know how you feel I too have that as one of my big concerns, I too have had multiple ekg's in the past 3 months and an ecg. My last ekg was two weeks ago, all fine. Yet I still worry just like you. I'm checking my pulse every single day. I must admit I have gotten better, after my last good ekg I just said ok, maybe I am ok.
