In brief: Panic attack?

The symptoms you had, can occur with a "panic attack.
" some panic attacks seem to come out of the blue, but others may have environmental triggers. It would also be important to know whether any physical violence was happening in this "fighting." you & your husband might benefit from couple's counseling so that disagreements don't get to this point -- and it may help you to see your doctor too.

In brief: Perhaps

These are symptoms of a panic attack.
An individual will have several symptoms like this all at once that come on suddenly without a particular trigger. So while you had symptoms of a panic attack, you did not have a "full blown" panic attack.
