Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
At 14 yrs of age there is hardly any chance to get a heart disease if you do not have any problem since birth.Anxiety by it self may mimic any disease because a human mind can imagine anything so you may even imagine a heart attack.
For a young person like you at your age there is hardly any reason for anxiety just relax get treated and try to concentrate on studies and keep yourself occupied so that your mind does not wander and it will help you reduce anxiety.
Thanks

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.

My husband survived the widow maker three years ago (age 49). He is very high strung, has anxiety and chest pain and is beginning to eat poorly. His pressure is up and cholesterol up by about 30 pts. He cannot seem to control his temper. I am afraid he is setting himself up for another heart attack. I guess my question is do you think there is any correlation to the heart attack and the personality change?

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
