welcome to health care magic

You are probably suffering from "panic disorder" in which there are intense anxiety attacks with impending doom. Consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and treatment (Medication, psychotherapy etc). Try some relaxation exercises like yoga, meditation or deep breathing.

However consult a general physician for ruling out cardiac pathology first

Wish you good health

General & Family Physician Dr. A K M Wasim Rahman's  Response
Hi Nikki ,
Thanks for consulting us.
As you have said these are classical symptoms of PANIC ATTACKS. This occurs due to stress/ anxiety which alter the amount of NEUROTRANSMITTER(Chemicals inside brain & nerve).
You should start taking,
1. PAROXETIN - 1st choice in Panic attack.
2. Clonazepam Mouth Dissolving SOS sublingually during the attack.
Along with this you can get help from meditation and yoga which will lower your anxiety.
Consult a good psychiatrist.
Best of Luck.
