Hi everyone. I must start by saying I have bad GAD and bad health anxiety to the point where I worry about my health and about dying from health issues every day. Lately my new area of focus to worry about is my heart. I am terrified that I will have a heart attack and die. I was out with my friends a few nights ago and had all the symptoms of a heart attack; chest pain, dizziness, pain and numbing in left arm, back pain and tingling, etc. I thought I was having a heart attack for sure. It eventually went away but I’ve had a few more spells since. I am a 20 year old female and the only heart conditions in my family have been my grandpa who had a heart attack when he was 70 and survived and my brother who had Wolfe-Parkinson’s White syndrome but is now cured. How likely is it that I will have a heart attack? I had an EKG about a year ago that came out normal. Should I order more tests to put my mind at ease? Thank you
