Can't say anything without having a look at the treatment and evaluation you get in hospital. If cardiac issue has been ruled out then there is whole list of diseases in differential diagnosis. Important thing for me is that this ailment is effecting your lifestyle. To me it seems that you are suffering from some anxiety disorder so consult a psychiatrist if there is no cardiac issue.
