Depression per say will not cause heart attack however ur stress while thinking about it may cause troubles. Depression is curable with the help of psychiatrist and family support, irregular heartbeat needs to be evaluated as in which kind. You probably can go through yearly health checks if so worried or take an appointment and visit me in consultation hours for further evaluation
