"Adrenalin": A surge in blood level of Epinephrine or norepinephrine can cause all these symptoms. Assuming you are not abusing stimulant drugs, the statistically most common condition resulting in this condition is a panic attack. Also this may be an exaggerated response to early menopause. See your gynecologist.
