In brief: Heart check up !

While you may be having an anxiety or panic attack, you should always make sure your heart is okay.
If your heart is indeed okay by further testing, you may benefit by relaxation techniques, psychotherapy or medications for anxiety or panic attacks.

In brief: Unlikely

Your symptom is more likely cause by anxiety than heart condition symptom of heart disease is usually brought by some sort of physical activity it is best described as tightness in the chest or breathing difficulty with exercise and relieved by rest.
This is most suspicious in people with risk factors such as age, high cholesterol , high blood pressure or diabetes.

In brief: Fear related heart

Those symptoms from anxiety are not caused by anything wrong with your heart.
Although there is an unusual condition called taku sabo cardiomyopathy or broken heart syndrome, anxiety will also not cause you to have a heart condition.
