Some of us go years without taking leave - that in itself doesn't necessarily cause stress . Maybe you have been developing an anxiety disorder / panic disorder, showing itself in this way ; maybe there's also a degree of Depression. See a relevant exprt, preferably a good local psychiatrist, as soon as is practical, for a proper assessment and a discussion of treatment options. Some medications could help significantly, as could counselling of the CBT type, from which you can learn to avoid such episodes of high anxiety, and to control them if they do arise.
