I'm glad your doctor checked your heart and thinks it's healthy. That's good news, even though our health anxiety doesn't like to accept good news.
My therapist tries to introduce ideas from the Mindfulness approach to me, but I don't really get into it so well. She does think highly of it, though, so I'd encourage you to give it a try. I can say that when I'm freaked about
my body, a meaningful distraction is priceless. It doesn't even have to be the same distraction every time - just anything that makes me have to shift attention to something else for a while. Next thing I know, I've forgotten about
the sensations I was feeling.
