In brief: Depends

You may have fever and be infected or you may be having anxiety or a panic attack.
If it happens often you may have an anxiety syndrome. It can happen after taking drugs and this may be your wake up call to stop doing drugs. Problems that include pain such as a broken bone, anemia from blood loss, or appendicitis can also cause it. /discuss this with your doctor you may need therapy.
