Your symptoms are typical of a Panic Disorder. It comes suddenly. There is usually no cause. Its multifactorial like any other psychiatric or medical illness. It is an illness of the nerves representing the Alarm System in the brain. It triggers intense fear, palpitations, chest pain, dizziness, weakness,draining feeling, sweating and the feeling of as if  you are going to die and wanted to go to the hospital urgently.
Its really a very distressing illness. What is the fear about? 'Don't know' would be the answer.

Treatment of choice are antidepressants(not anxiolytics) and cognitive behavior therapy- a special type of counseling. Yes it is CURABLE. A course of medications combined with CBT will completely treat the illness in two months.  Though one has to take meds for about 6-8months course to prevent further relapses.

Next Steps
Dont visit  ER or a physician. they wil give you alprazolam and you get addicted for life. Consult a psychiatrist, get assessed and start the prescribed treatment.
Health Tips
Breathing techniques, Relaxation therapies, meditation can be tried.

These symptoms are certainly pointing to a lot of health anxiety. If you have ruled out any medical issue then make sure you see a psychiatrist. Psychological help will bring you off this difficulty.
