I think it is good that you are seeing doctors and are having the appropriate tests done.  Based on your age, I would expect all your tests to come back normal.  The symptoms you describe are very consistent with panic attacks and your age and gender are also appropriate for a first event.  My suggestion is to continue with the cardiac work up and if it is negative, like I think it will be, you should see your internist or family practice doctor to talk about treatments for panic attacks.  This usually includes medications and counseling.

I hope this helps.
