im a 23 year old male

ive had problems with panic attacks for about ohh 4 years or so. When it first started they were just shortness of breath all day however. doctors told me it was just anxiety, i asked about what tests should i get done, and ive had asthma tests, ekg's, echo's, blood tests. mostly everything was fine. On my echocardiogram they told me that i had a minor leaking heart valve but told me nothin of it, no heart defects. as i switched jobs, i switched insurances and doctors, everytime i get a severe panic attack ive been to emergency rooms and all tests come back fine. im 6', bout 200 pounds and am active. my bp is normal anywhere from 120/80 to 132/78 sometimes a bit higher depending when its measured. lately however ive been having weird numbing sensations in both my arms from shoulder down, hands are fine, sometimes pain in my chest but never severe enough. my current doctor doesnt think anythin of it being that i am young and whenever he listens to my heart he doesnt hear any murmurs or anything that would sound like a leakin valve. am i just worried for nothing or should i try to get another echo done ? any help would be great. hes got me on xanax and zoloft. during my panic attacks i get shortness of breat, tight chest sometimes painfull. numbing in both shoulders sometimes pain. dont get it, want it to go away!
