I have anxiety attacks all the time. Some severe. I have a family history of heart disease. How can I know it's just anxiety and not a heart attack?

In brief: Med eval

Your symptoms need to be evaluated medically to determine if there is a medical cause.
One can not just assume that they are due to panic disorder.
