Detailed Answer:
Hello again,

The symptoms you experienced is most likely due to panic. You can try relaxation techniques like meditation or yoga to help. If the pain recurs and is too bothersome, follow up with your primary care provider to undergo imaging studies of brain (CT brain) to rule out any underlying problems.
