Our expert says:
Sounds like anxiety attacks, possibly panic disorder. During such episodes one is flooded with the same panic-inducing chemicals as would be released if you found a savage tiger entering the room --- so one feels terrified, has all the symptoms of fear, and is scared one will die, or collapse, or go mad, or all 3. Fortunately, this does not happen, but it truly feels like that. HEart attacks don't happen in these situations. ONLY Cognitive-Behaviour therapy helps ( other forms of psychological intervention are useless ) and some medications from a psychiatrist can also reduce the power behind such attacks and symptoms.
