Hi there, thanks for asking. Since it is the first time you are experiencing these symptoms, it is necessary to have a electrocardiography (ECG) as a baseline to see if you have a regular rhythm in your heart. If it is intensified with activity, you should have exercise test to see if there is any narrowing in your heart vessels. If these tests are normal, then it could be anxiety related in the shape of panic, or milder forms which are also anxiety related. The treatment could be with medication or could be cognitive behavioural therapy by a therapist. It could also be situational related to an acute stress in the life, but still deserves to dealt with. I wish you a god health.

So it seems to be mostly related to the anxiety issues. You can use some relaxation technic to control the anxiety or try the issues mentioned in the first answer. Best wishes.
