Can panic disorder cause heart problems?

Panic disorder does not cause heart problems. However, there is a correlation between having panic disorder and mitral valve prolapse, a heart valve dysfunction. The good news is that for those with mitral valve prolapse, it is mostly benign and asymptomatic.

When you have a panic attack, it can feel like you are having a heart attack. But panic attacks are benign and can't hurt you and can't cause heart problems.
