Panic attack? Or something else?

Hello, I wanted to share what happened this night. I got into a little fight with the person I’m talking to and he declared that he’s blocking me and is done with me. I still tried texting him, but he didn’t even check the messages. And then it kinda came out of nowhere. I started feeling either extreme heart pain or extreme crushing feeling. Or maybe both at once. It seemed like someone took my heart into their hands and is crushing it. It’s a bit vague now, but I know that I was repeating inside my head “calm down”. Then suddenly it started feeling like my room is crushing as well. As in, my room is crushing me and it’s about to fall. And that I’m going to die.
I read a bit about panic attacks, but they also mention short of breath, trembling, sweating. I don’t really remember if I was having a short of breath. I’m not sure. But is this still considered a panic attack? Or maybe something else? I haven’t experienced something like that, it was scary.

Hello lilbat. Welcome to the forum. I feel the way you have described when I am in emotional pain. If I am hurt I feel like my heart is being crushed and I cannot breathe.
