Can a heart attack come from anxiety ?

I ve had anxiety attacks/panic attacks almost my whole life. If anyone has this they know what i m talking about. Last night was the worst attack i ve ever had. I literally felt that i was going to die. I started panicking thinking nothing or nobody can help me. Then i started feeling weak and light headed, i could not breathe, that s when i started panicking more. Then i started feeling like i was paralyzed like every move i made was like sooo exhausting like i ve ran miles. I was totally out of breathe. My heart was beating so fast i thought it was going to come out of my chest . Then i started deep breathing and thinking of the most important things to me my kids my family, i came back too. My chest is sore today but does it sound like a heart attack to you all?
