I'm still worried: I am not sure i would ignore these symptoms, i had a patient who had all these symptoms, saw his primary on monday, all tests were negative, on saturday, five days later he was in ICU witha heart attack, he was treated immediately, did well.

Not on the Internet: This situation is the very reason one should have a good and healthy relationship with a family doctor. You and your family doctor now should sit down and go over all of the tests and develop a plan to make sure you are managing your anxiety better; that your heart is absolutely not the problem; reviewing your history in your profile makes me want to remind you that you can overcome anxiety.

Anxiety is overcome. It is a relearning of how one defines emotions and past experiences. It is insight gained that helps one grow out of anxiety. It does not necessarily have to be a life long problem.

Symptoms: To know we would have to know much more information about you and what studies you've had. If you've had what most of us would consider an adequate work up for your symptoms then anxiety would be a short list probability. With the information here, can't tell.
