Relax: The symptoms you list are consistent with those of a panic attack. During a panic attack many people fear that they are having a heart attack or are dying. After your physician has assured you that your heart is fine and that your symptoms can't be explained by a medical condition, you might want to seek treatment for the anxiety symptoms. Drinking and working too hard could also be addressed.
