Pre-heart attack or panic attack ?

I ve been having what I thought were panic attacks lately ( I have not had confirmation from a doctor but from what I have read they have either been panic or anxiety attacks). Anyway, I found this in an answer to a heart attack question: A heart attack usually provokes shooting pain on the chest that extends to the LEFT arm and also shortness of breath , palpitations, dizziness , loss of consciousness and many more obvious symptoms My question is do you get sharp shooting pains in your chest, near heart area, for panic attacks? Or is that strictly a heart attack symptom? I feel that I am too young to have a heart attack, but I am pretty overbooked, thus overly stressed. I haven t had an shooting pains in my left arm though, and I know that is a trademark for Heart Attacks. So does anyone know whats going on with me? Here are the symptoms I have had for reference: -Chest Pain -Shaking (Not always) -Headache -Dizziness/Nausea -Trouble Breathing Thank you for your help!
