Hi. Sounds very like a panic attack. I quite often find that one symptom comes along which then leads to a heightened awareness and looking for other symptoms. The more we find the more likely to have a panic attack as the stress level is rising all this time. Heart beats faster as your take shallower breaths - and the heart struggles to get the right amount of oxygen to the brain, causing a headache, which then makes for even more panic - and round and round it goes.Panic attacks dont have to last very long - the average is 20 minutes.
