Sounds like hyperventilation to me. When you overbreathe, you lower your level of carbon dioxide in the lungs and this causes rapid pulse, anxiety and feeling of suffocation. Try breathing in and out into your cupped hands (breathing back your expelled air) for a minute or so when this happens, and you may find that it will settle dramatically. Another way is to dip your face in cold water. I have used both these methods successfully. Go to the doctor and get tests to rule out any serious stuff tho.

I get PVC's sometimes when I try to take a deep breath in. Annoying, yes, but shouldn't be harmful.
