Cardiology Questions Answered by Verified Cardiologists.
Thank you fro your question.
For the GAD itself you would need to be on more effective medications such as daily selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) medications. In addition you need to consult a psychotherapist preferably a therapist who is experienced in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). As far as worrying that things can go horribly wrong I would recommend the below linked book which shows you how deal with such thoughts in a better way.
Regarding your symptoms I do not see any red flag warning symptoms for any cardiac pathology. However an examination by a doctor as well as an electrocardiogram is recommended. If your doctor is not available you may go to the ER. However I am sure that this will turn out to be a false alarm and your anxiety is making you imagine the worse.
