Is there something wrong with me or is it all in my head ?

Is there something wrong with me or is it all in my head..?
I don't know how to say this without sounding stupid but for the past little while, I've become obssessed with focusing on my heart. I know that sounds odd - what I mean is that I've become obssessed with following my heart beat, always thinking that I'm about to have a heart attack or some other wierd crap is going on with my heart. When that happens, my heart starts to beat really fast, almost to the point where I think it's gonna burst out of my chest. I feel hot in my face and a little tingly at times. Then, of course, I become even more panicked and I almost feel this like burning sensation or a warm sensation come over me and by this time, lol, I'm FREAKIN. I mean, I'm seriously thinking everyday that I'm about to have a heart attack. Am I having panic attacks? Am I being really paranoid? This never happened before, but recently I've just been really focusing on my heart beat and it's been trippin' me out lately. Is there something wrong.. =( or is it all in my head?
