Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.

Have you done an EKG yet?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes I have had all heart tests and all came back normal even calcium coronary study and stress exercise test
Expert:  Dr. R. Bora replied 1 year ago.
Well that sounds good.

These thoughts do not directly have a stressful effect on the heart but you have to control your obsessive thoughts. For this, you have to undergo a behaviorl therapy that helps to come to terms with your negative thoughts and control them. This is known as CBT or cognitive behavioral therapy and is different from psychotherapy.

So my heart is safe from these Ocd behaviors?
Expert:  Dr. R. Bora replied 1 year ago.
Yes, since all your tests came back normal , your heart is normal .

But you need to undergo CBT which is very healthy and effective for you and will gradually reduce your obsessive symptoms.

One last thing should I stop worrying about the Ocd actions that happened today and know that my heart is fine and safe from those thoughts and actions?

Sorry for the late reply as I was offline.

Yes, you should stop worring as much as possible. Remember the less worry you are, the more healthy heart you have.

Moreover, please talk to your consulting physician / psychiatrist about CBT.
