Thanks for query,
your symptoms are more likely due to panic attack you got.
Bumping of head against wall twice or more indicates that you might have underlying depression.
At present along with all symptoms you are getting if you have headache,nausea,vomiting,giddiness then consult neurophysician and get investigated.
Ok and bye.
