heart acceleration, dizzyness, fear

While going home from the gym this week I felt dizzy and a feeling of fear in my chest kind of like wanting to faint. I felt Like I needed to calm down, I got in my car and as I drove home I played the radio, called people on the phone, turned the AC on and off but nothing seemed to work, I was afraid. As I kept driving home my heart rate just sky rocketed to the point where I thought of stoping at a store and asking them to call 911. I finnaly made it home and eventually calmed down but ever since that day at random points of any day I get the same symptoms very lightly but I still they are there. I have checked my vitals several times and all is fine. Blood pressure is fine aswell. I would also like to add that I drink alcoholic beverages about 3-4 times out of the week and have been doing so for some time now. After a night of drinking I feel the same symptoms in the mornings only that I sleep it off. I used to think that it was due to the hangovers but my concern now is that it keeps accuring  randomly at any time of the day even on days when I don't drink.

Hi Bob, you're describing anxiety attacks to a tee.

So what do you think is triggering the anxiety attacks? When I felt these symptoms the strongest was after the workout at the gym.

I just read in an article that exercise helps reduce anxiety. Why do you think I felt these symptoms after exercising?

You are probably best served to talk to a doctor, I should have put that in my first post.

They can hook you to an event monitor and catch the heart racing issue, see what's going on.
