It sounds like a mild anxiety. I suffer from it so badly my heart skips beats, so I understand how scary it can be. Normally walking away from a nervous situation, or sitting down and taking long, slow deep breaths helps. If it starts to effect your daily life, you should consider speaking to your doctor, I was given diazepam to calm me down in extreme circumstances
