Cardiac events: can happen at any age but probability is lower when young like yourself. The anxiety you mention in your history MAY be the real issue. Please continue being followed by your doc and consider getting support for your anxiety w/a mental health care professional. Treatments such as biofeedback, clinical hypnosis, and meditation are all helpful tools. Peace and good health.
