Can a 16 year old get an heart attack ?

Can i have a heart attack at the age of 16? I m 16 years old and i have an anxiety disorder , ive had terribal panic attacks to the point where i went to the ER and had an EKG done twice and a cats scan checking for heart problems but every test they took came back normal and they told me i was as healthy as a horse. I felt pretty good for a week then all of the suddent my symptoms came back. I ve been getting bad chest pains, the chills, my left arms been hurting and tingling, i feel dizzy sometimes nd anxious, ive been getting a lot of indigestion , and sometimes my vision starts to get fuzzy. I m slender, 5 2, and weigh around 110 pounds. even though they took all those tests i m wondering if what i m feeling is signs of a heart attack or if i m prone to having a heart attack. i m very worried someone please answer as fast as possibal

Hello there.
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
Your symptoms are suggestive of panic attacks.. So there is nothing wrong with your heart.If the symptoms are uncontrollable you need appropriate medication and counselling..
Hope this helps.
take care.
