It looks like panic disorder but before jumping to any conclusions its ideal to rule out any problems,foremost of which are hypoglycemia or less sugar and thyroid problem.Migraine also can be cured.Needs a course of medicines.

Hi your description does suggest likely type of anxiety disorder called panic disorder where in your mind and body reacts to a perceived threat when there is no real threat. It is a common condition and is treatable. It needs further exploring in terms of situational exaggeration, any stress reaction and the nature etc. Once any underlying physical health issues are ruled out and based in severity and the impact of panic disorder treatment is determined. For mild to moderate symptoms, cognitive behavior therapy which is focused on gradually restructuring your thinking and improving coping would be advised. Good lifestyle like yoga, meditation, relaxation will also help. For severe symptoms medicine is beneficial. Please consult a psychiatrist to determine appropriate treatment for you. Regards
