You could be experiencing aura symptoms. Have you ever had migraines before? Do you have any close relatives with migraine? My migraines do not always include pain and my aura symptoms include numbness, light and sound sensitivity, lowered level or loss of consciousness, and confusion. When these first started I had a great deal of anxiety because I had no idea what was happening to my body and that panic had it's own symptoms.........racing heart, shaking etc... Now I try as best I can to remain calm and find a dark, quiet space where I can lay down and listen to the tv or radio and let it pass. It is however a good idea to rule out any other issues with your neurological or cardiovascular symptom. For me migraine was a rule-out diagnosis.
