Anxiety states: You most likely are suffering from an anxiety state, which has fixated on the status of your heart. I would strongly urge you to talk this over with your Internist, and ask for a referral to a Psychiatrist to better sort out the etiologies of your somatic based anxiety disorder.

More people die in their own home than outside it. Hope this helps !!!

Thanks Herman, that was a good suggestion on Your part. Question for the patient: Did someone close to you die of heart disease?
