Yes, my sister had a heart attack at 21, so you could definitely have a heart attack at 22. Especially with your genes. It feels like you just had your heart like stop, but for longer than a roller coaster ride. And yes, it could possibly be. I would go to a cardiologist, they might be able to help, or give you tips on how to prevent one.

I saw my doctor yesterday and he said it could be a gi bug and could have developed because of stress.
