Palpitation, sweating, trembling, goose bumps etc are common when we fear
and is the act of adrenaline.
Understand its importance, the reaction is "fight or flight"
Body gets ready for reaction, an outcome of fear.
Means the reaction was pretty normal 12 years back and you mistook it as something else.
Then the fear continued and the symptoms also.
Please let the fear go, for it is very normal.
Get a counseling session soon.
Wish you good future.

Hi there ~

I understand your concern. I also think that you have post traumatic stress disorder or anxiety that is not going away, we call them anxiety attacks. You may also need to undergo a cardiac eval to ruleout anything cardiac in origin that is making your condition worse. I hope that you see a psychiatrist as soon as you can to have your problems treated. Take care and have a lovely day!

SEE A CARDIOLOGIST - Go for EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY tests - to exclude heart problem
If nothing is found, consult a Psychiatrist
The chances for recovery are excellent...

Take care

Thanks for your query. What you are describing are paroxysmal or episodic anxiety attacks. They could be part of variety of anxiety disorders including panic disorder. Hence, i would suggest you undergo a thorough psychiatric evaluation to rule out the same. The treatment consists of:
1. Anti-anxiety agents like SSRIs
2. Psychotherapy techniques like CBT/Cognitive behavioural therapy
Yoga/meditation/breathing relaxation exercises are also beneficial. Wish you good health.
