Assessment: A medical workup is needed to determine if there is a medical problem causing these symptoms. Without med workup would not assume that these are panic attacks.

Internal Medicine 37 years experience
Panic attack: cannot say in your particular case, but generally, this is a good description of panic attacks. Medication and CBT are good for that http://www.nerdpocalypse.net/cbt.html
