Hi..please get a USG abdomen to rule out pheochromocytoma(adrenal gland tumour) since this sudden onset can be due to hyper sympathetic stimulation...get a complet cardio pulmonary testing(ECG, ECHO, chest X ray) it can be a mild attack of Myocardial infarction....a lighter scenario can be acute gastritis (gas) for which you can take an antacid twice in a day for 2 days to see wehter the symptoms re appear
