Panic Attacks?: There are a number of different types of anxiety disorders. A common type of anxiety reaction is a panic attack. These typically occur suddenly and can have a variety of symptoms such as anxiety, sweating, feeling hot, short of breath, shaky, chest discomfort, etc. Panic attacks sometimes occur in response to specific triggers, but often are completely random events with no identifiable cause.
