Thanks for the query.
There are two strongest possibilities of your problems:-
* Firstly, there is a heart condition called "Paroxysmal tachycardia" in which there is a sudden, transient increase in the heart rate
, lasting for 10-20 minutes. During this period, the heart is unable to pump adequate amount of blood to vital organs of the body and, hence the symptoms. You may therefore consult a Cardiologist
who will do an ECG and, if required, 24-monitoring which will pinpoint the exact cause. In that event, regular treatment will relieve you of these episodes.
* Secondly, the symptoms as similar in Acute Panic Attacks. If you have anxiety/mental stress
or unknown apprehensions, Acute Panic Attacks may be the cause. Please consult a Psychiatrist
who will prescribe Anti-depressants + anxiolytics which will give relief.
