Q: How do I know if I am having anxiety attack or heart related issues

I have a history of anxiety.  Lately I have been have a lot of stress at work and for some reason have been concerned about my heart, but also my anxiety level has increased.  I noticed my heart beats quicker in the am.  Anxiety medication does not seem to relieve the symptoms for long.  I don't know what to do.  I am a 54 year old female and have always been healthy.  I had a full stress test 1 1/2 years ago and everything was normal.
