Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

The symptoms described are most likely seen during a panic attack. Other possibility which needs to be ruled out is a cardiac arrhythmia. Atypical seizure is a third unlikely possibility.

The symptoms are non specific and a clear systemic medical condition cannot be suggested without evaluation. To me it looks more like a panic attack; however a detailed clinical examination to rule out cardiac arrhythmia and atypical seizure is warranted. Evaluation to establish a diagnosis for this patient would include routine blood test, thyroid profile, ECG / 2D echo for the heart and a preliminary CT scan of the brain would be essential.

Hope this answers your query.
