Visit to your PCP is also needed to assess & rule out physical causes of symptoms.

In brief: It's possible

Panic attack symptoms can include the symptoms you describe, but so can some medical problems.
Please see your primary care doctor for an evaluation. If he or she does not believe a medical condition accounts for your symptoms, then seek a mental health evaluation. Hope this answer helps.

In brief: Yes but

By definition a panic attack develops abruptly with such symptoms - chest pounding, sweating, shortness of breath, fear one might die or loose control, etc.
But they resolve within a short period of time. Panic attacks by definition do not last longer than 30 to 40 minutes --> the intensity is so severe with a massive flood of hormones [adrenalin] that such intensity cannot last longer.
