I have severe panic attacks. My heart starts pounding really hard and I can feel in flutter in my chest.

I am worried something is wrong with my heart . I am always thinking my heart is just going to stop. I have severe panic attacks that strike me for no reason at all. My heart starts pounding really hard and I can feel in flutter in my chest . I had a EKG in 2003 and one this past February. The doctor did not tell me if anything was wrong with my heart. What should I do? I am so scared my heart is going to just stop on me. Serious answers please, thanks in advance

You need a psychiatrist, not a cardiologist. It sounds like you heart already checked out just fine. Your anxiety on the other hand needs treatment. Many drugs are available to treat anxiety including SSRIs like Zoloft and Paxil. Go to the doctor.
