How old are you?
What kind of testing have the cardiologists done?
And if you've had all of those tests done -- why are you worried about a heart attack?
The most reassuring test out of all of these would be the stress test.
That test looks at your heart function with exercise, and if you were going to have a heart attack, they would have seen evidence of poor blood flow to the heart during that test.
The sharp pains that you have in the muscle -- aren't heart related. Sharp and sudden pains aren't typical for heart pain. It can be costochondritis, or a "pinched" nerve in the neck or upper thoracic spine.

OK, you may have a small issue with your heart rate, but that still wouldn't cause you to have a heart attack.
With the stress test -- your blood pressure and heart rate will go high -- but your functioning of the heart remained fine -- which is the most important part of the test.
It may be helpful for you to discuss further with a psychiatrist, because you have a significant amount of health anxiety.
You've had all of these tests, and they show your heart is functioning normally, so I'd try to take several deep breaths and realize that the experts have told you that you aren't at any additional risk here.
Yes, enjoy life.
Your doctors wouldn't hide the truth from you. The beta blocker can help to prevent the heart rate from racing (which may have something to do with your anxiety as well).
You'd have to ask your family doctor about actual dose recommendations. This is just an informational service online.
I am a doctor, but I'm not your doctor.
I can't make medication recommendations without knowing your complete health history.
That is what I have been saying, your stress test was normal so you shouldn't be worrying.
Metoprolol is a commonly used medication for heart rate.
That's for people with heart failure. You don't have anything even close to heart failure.
Advil, Aleve, or tylenol.
