Heart Attack

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.

If you have had all those tests already & they have all come back negative then considering also you suffer from an anxiety disorder i would almost garuentee those symptoms you are experiencing are panic related. I myself have suffered an anxiety/panic disorder & for years i was convinced something was wrong with my heart, i think it is very common for people with anxiety to also think the same. I have had symptoms like chest pain, tightness, palpitations, even felt like the pain is going down my harm & still the tests i have had done are negative. Try & trust in what the doctors tell you & focus more on something else & less on your symptoms, if you don't give them any attention, gradually they will go away
