I have anxiety. Worry about my heart. I've had 4 ekg and blood tests that were normal....would they have found something wrong if it was there?

Cardiac neurosis? If you've also had an echocardiogram and a holter, and they were normal like your EKG, and you can keep up with your peers in your favorite athletic activity, your heart's fine and dandy. Here's what you need to do, Trav. Find a fitness sport that you really enjoy, and get into it really hard. You'll feel your heart getting bigger, healthier, and able to work harder for you. Embrace it.
Exercise. It is highly unlikely that there is anything wrong with your heart, despite your irrational anxiety. If you exercise regularly, it will keep your heart healthy and also let you know that your heart is okay. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Had heart flutters since teens. Scare me to pieces each time. Have had EKG years ago and blood tests are perfect. Should I continue to worry?

Hard to say. It is hard to confirm or ignore an issue without having enough data. What you mean by "flutters" is not clear. Your condition can change over the years and my approach to such a comment would be an EKG and a 24-48 hr Holter monitor.This study records your heart activity through many active & inactive settings & can catch rhythm disturbances with more reliability.
