Tight Chest & Feel Like Burning Up

Hello. Not sure if this is the right place to post this question, but I'm wondering if anyone can offer any advice: for the last month or two I've been having random instances where the top of my chest gets feels tight and it becomes a bit hard to breathe (but no physical pain) and at the same time my body feels like I'm burning up no matter the temperature of where I am. I'm not sick with fever, I just get this internal heat wave radiating in my head and my chest gets tight and uncomfortable. It only seems to happen when I'm at home reading or watching a movie, or in a loud environment.
Any ideas what it is and what I do? thanks

(perhaps I should add this "thing" only lasts for maybe 5 mins at a time, but sometimes leaves me with a head ache and occasionally blurring my vision or makes my eyes see black spots for a minute or two).
