In brief: Your doctor

Those symptoms can be from anxiety or panic attacks, thyroid function abnormalities, or abnormal heart rhythms that require an event recorder (continuous heart monitoring for several days) for diagnosis.
Your doctor can get more information and determine the best course of action.
