Likely due to POTS.: If you have had a clear holter, then i suspect this is due to your pots. It does not sound like a panic attack, and generalized anxiety is nagging long-term anxiety. It is not in a social setting, so it is not social anxiety, and you don't mention trauma, so unlikely to be ptsd. It is not an obsession or compulsion, so it sounds like pots with worry due to the pots symptoms. Talk to your pots doc.
