Brief Answer:
Few probable diagnoses as mentioned should be ruled out asap

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
To recapitulate: Female/61 - acute abdominal pain - very painful - palpitation - short trembling breath - lasted for 10 minutes - notd the medical history and medications...
Such type of symptoms can occur in the following situations and should be ruled out asap:
Cardiac cause - Urgent EKG and cardiac evaluation.
Gastric volvulus, although rare - Barium study of stomach in head-low position.
Esophagospasm.
Any other problems that can be seen on clinical evaluation and further investigations.

If all the clinical evaluations and investigations are within normal then only this may be termed as panic attack.

Please get these things done to get a probable diagnosis and further management as required.
I hope this answer helps you.
Please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
