Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i believe this is a classic presentation of anxiety and panic attacks. You need anxiolytics and reassurance and few sessions of psychotherapy. just let your doctor have a look evaluate you completely for psychiatric purposes and give you some supportive care. Few doses of lorazepam and beta blockers like propranolol will help the anxiety.

Take care
