Long term stress may be ONE out of many factors which can contribute towards the risk of heart attack, and it has other unwanted efects on the body. But if you see a good shrink, anxiety and stress are generally very responsive to treatment. Remember, too, that during an anxiety attack, one's heart beats faster and you become aware of it, you may feel more breathless, sweaty, etc --- and you may FEAR that you're going to have a heart attack, but it really isn't at all likely to happen --- it just feels like it.
