Hyperventilating: Your symptoms are characteristic of hyperventilation syndrome in which rapid respirations blow off too much carbon dioxide leading to chemical changes in the blood resulting in a drop in serum calcium. The cure is blowing into a paper bag and breathing the carbon dioxide. Try not to hyperventilate during sexual activity.
