Heart anxiety

Hi my name is Chris I'm 20 years old pretty fit with good muscle tone. Now I've been dealing with Heart anxiety for about 2 years now I've had normal ekgs normal blood test and xrays the doctors even listened to my heart and said it sounds beautiful.. I just can't seem to let it go I've been doing good until I went to the movies and out of nowhere I got really hot and my heart just started pounding/racing out of nowhere is this my anxiety that is causing this!??

I would say yes it's from anxiety. I've had diagnosed anxiety for 10 years but really I've had it as long as I can remember. When I was a teenager I was always afraid of having a heart attack for no particular reason. Every time I would go in a movie theatre I would get really anxious and have a racing heart. And I'd never eat popcorn because I was afraid I'd choke and die. Lol seriously anxiety is awful. The physical symptoms and mental stoms are hard to deal with and to overcome.
And for whatever reason now I always get lightheaded and hot and sweat when i go in a Walmart.
