NO: Your anxiety is poorly controlled. You should be reassured that your heart is healthy; however, you are concerned re: MI. It is time for counseling therapy and CBT. Please consult a psychologist and/or a psychaitrist.

No: It sounds like your anxiety attacks have just stopped. This is probably not connected to your heart. At your age and with a normal stress test on your heart and evaluation by cardiologist heart attack is very unlikely.
