Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

Your symptoms could be related to a metabolic disorder.
A panic attack cannot be excluded either. Coming to this point, I recommend going to the ER for a physical exam and some tests:
- a resting ECG
- a chest X ray study
- complete blood count, PCR, ESR for inflammation
- thyroid hormone levels for thyroid gland dysfunction
- blood electrolytes for possible imbalances
- fasting glucose

If all the above tests result normal, you should consider anxiety as a possible cause of all this clinical scenario.

Hope you will find this answer helpful! Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
