Brief Answer:
Seems like an anxiety attack.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using Healthcaremagic to post your health query.
I read carefully your question and I understand your concern.

What you are describing seems like a generalized anxiety attack.
What happens is that the body accumulates stress and relives it in a physical way with these type of symptoms. You might not have had stress particularly in these days, but fr sure in the last 6 months.

My recommendation is to try to address the stress that you have now, and talk with someone or try to control it. Doing activities that you enjoy during your day may help like reading, walking, going out with friends, ect.

If these episode repeats more then 2-3 times/week then I would recommend seeing a local doctor.

Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you need more clarifications.

Regards,
