Could a 24 year old female have a heart attack ?

I happen to be a very highly stressed person with an inability to fully relax. i ve had very sharp pains near my heart, especially when i take a deep breath. for 2 days ive had this pain down my left arm and my hand gets numb.... heart disease runs in my family, ive lost many to heart attacks as well. i got blood work done and they said i have high triglycerides - which is weird because i dont eat meat, or really anything high in fat... is 24 too young to have heart problems? lol... thanks thanks cheffy... i ll take that as i m fine lol

I am a 33 yr old female and I swear I have heart issues. I have had so many test done for my heart and everything has come back 100% normal. i have had countless number of EKG s I have a 48 heart montior I had a echo of my heart. my bp is a little high (bottom number in the low 80 s) my cholesterol total is 166. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and my Dr (bless his heart he is awesome) says all the things I feel is related to my panic not heart. Is there really anything else they could do to test my heart or did I pretty get everything? My doc said he wouldn t send me for a cardic cath cuz everything else was fine. Yes I do take meds to my panic attacks.
