Who diagnosed you with OCD? A trained psychotherapist, or your regular doc? You want to get into therapy so you can work on your thinking, one who specializes in anxiety treatment so you can get a correct diagnosis. As for the heart stuff, it's impossible to truly know if you have a heart problem, but at your age, it's so unlikely, and the symptoms you describe don't sound like a heart attack. If you're that concerned, your doctor can perform tests, but your more important and likely concern is your anxiety.
