In brief: Get it evaluated

There are medical conditions that can cause release of hormones and other substances that will produce these symptoms for no obvious (perceived) reason.
Get to your physician for a thorough evaluation asap.

In brief: I

I would strongly recommend a careful medical evaluation to rule out other medical conditions that could mimic panic attacks - for example hyperthyroidism .
In any event, if the medical evaluation is unremarkable , you could talk to your psychiatrist and consider treatment with an ssri as well as cognitive behavioral therapy.
