Dr. Cynthia Rector
Psychiatry

In brief: Primary Care/Psych

If you had an evaluation in the ER and there was no cardiac problems, I would start with your Primary Care Physician.
He/She can screen for metabolic problems that can cause these symptoms. If they keep happening and your tests are negative, they may be panic attacks which may lead to a Psychiatric referral. A good therapist may also be able to teach you some techniques to deal with panic attack
