Heart attack or panic attack??

I am 25 and have been having shortness of breath since last night. I dont have any chect pain and AM a sufferer of panic attacks? I am scared I am having a heart attack. I checked my blood pressure and it was fine this morning, am I just freaking myself out or is it just a panic attack?

things to ask yourself, are you sweating a lot, does your left arm hurt?? if yes, it could be a heart attack but since you do suffer from panic attacks then i would say it is just a panic attack, keep an eye on your blood pressure and if it gets high go seek medical advice
