I have sudden increase in heart rate around 110 or greater, breathlessness, slight pain in my chest, feel drowsy and weak. What could be the cause?

Please get EKG: If your symptoms are very sudden in starting and sudden in stopping, this may be a sign of an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia). You need to see a heart specialist who can order a monitor for you to wear at home during these episodes. That monitor can help identify the problem. If not from your heart then this could be from intense anxiety or panic.
