Not too likely you would have a heart attack at 15.
DO see a doctor though, your symptoms “could” be something other than anxiety and they should check.
The symptoms you described are typical of anxiety though. The best treatment is always to find out what you are anxious about and talk to someone: a relative, friend, school counselor or therapist.
If it’s bad enough, they can prescribe medication for it but it’s best not to have to do that.
Once you recognize the anxiety is not going to harm you or interfere with your life it will usually go away on it’s own.
Keep up your sports. Exercise literally produces chemicals in your body that helps with anxiety.
