Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Your history is not actually sufficient enough to say anything for sure but it could be panic attacks. 
I would suggest you get her checked out by a MD consultant physician in person for further evaluation and management. 
If all ok from his side, then you can consult a psychiatrist.
Best regards.
