Thanks for your query. It is possible that you are suffering from panic attacks. It requires anti-anxiety medication and psychotherapy interventions like cognitive behavioural therapy are useful in such cases. However, you would need to rule out cardiac problems with ECG and thyroid disorders before psychiatric evaluation. Smoking is not advisable in patents with panic disorder. Hope you found the information useful.

Psychiatrist Dr. Gourav Monga's  Response

welcome to health care magic

First thing you have to do is Stop Smoking and get all the investigations like ECG, X Ray chest, Complete Blood counts etc. Consult a general physician to rule out any medical pathology. If everything comes out to be normal, it might be you have anxiety disorder for which psychiatric consultation should be sought out.

Hope it helps
Good luck
