Well, it's similar to a panic atack, but because it's typical of any normal person being highly aroused - whether by fear, anxiety, or anger. Its part of how our body prepares itself to protect itself, by fighting or fleeing, even where these aren't the best options, and even when, as your example describes, you're unable to do either of those.
