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. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
