Hi, I'm not a doctor, but it sounds like it very well could be anxiety & panic attacks.  I wish you well as you try to deal with this; if we (the non-doctor people) can ever be of assistance, don't be afraid to ask!

Yes, it sounds like a panic disorder to me. What is making you feel this way? What are you worrying about?
