Sounds like panic atacks, though their could be an element of PTSD. And as you wisely recognize, with any sort of anxiety symptoms, the more you worry about them, the worse they get - it's a vicious cycle. The best way to be sure of the diagnosis would be to see a good local psychiatrist ( this is more than a GP's trained to diagnose well ) for a proper assessment and then a discussion of diagnosis and treatment options. Its likely that with CBT and some carefully chosen meds, you coul be feeling a good deal better before long
