Heart attack=no: You can obviously get worked up to the point of exhaustion & feel like there is no way to stop it. You have also realized you need help which is the first step toward recovery. See your doc for an initial evaluation ( some health issues can aggravate this) and then s/he can refer you to the local source you need for treatment. You can get this under control with work.
