Our expert says:
Well, Shelly, these certainly sound like anxiety / panic attacks, which respond excellently to treatment including medication. They are very frightening to experience, and usually arise for chemical reasons, with no other good reason for them. Nothing from the chemist without prescription is likely to help them usefully, but see your doctor, who can prescribe any of several options, which really can help greatly, such as modern antidepressants which damp down panic attacks and such severe anxiety.
