Best to get checked: People <30 yrs old with no risk factors at all (smoking, family history of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes) are at extremely low risk for acquired heart disease. However other things can cause these symptoms, including anemia, high blood sugar and thyroid problems. So best thing is to have a comprehensive check-up with your physician.

Your question?: You haven't asked a question, but these are typical symptoms of a panic attack. By definition these come "out of the blue, " but there may still be precipitating triggers. Usually the symptoms peak within 10 minutes and dissipate by 20-30 min, if that long. Please see your family physician for a general health evaluation, since other things can present like this also.
