In brief: Many, many things.

Lot depends on hx of these symptoms (history leads to over 95% of the diagnoses, most of the time testing adds little, or confirms the DX of an experienced clinician taking time to listen.
Within these parentheses lies the answer to a failed health system at double the cost). Here, the answer is in the hx. Is it acute, recurrent, chronic, etc. diangosis is in doc's brain, add compassion, give all a good 'gp'.

In brief: Anxiety!

You are most likely having a panic or anxiety attack.
Alternatively you could be having flu too. Try to relax, take a few deep breaths. If you are not able to, call your pcp for guidance.
