It is not an anxiety attack and I therefore, suggest that you consult your doctor as soon as possible. You might be suffering from pluritis (inflammation of the tissue surrounding the lung) or myocarditis (inflammation of the heart tissue). Do not over exert yourself in any way and consult your doctor as soon as possible.
