I get a sensation of heat pouring over my head, then vertigo. What is this?

I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder a year ago. My first attack caused me to go to the emergency room. During this attack, I was having a migraine, so I thought it was a stroke.
I see a Psychiatrist for medication and go to an Anxiety treatment center weekly for therapy.
Today, I was sitting at my desk at work and a rush of heat poured over my head. I looked up and my computer started to turn upside down, even though nothing was moving. I felt dizzy, like the room was spinning and had to hold onto the table. It only lasted about 4 seconds. I immediately had the shakes and a Panic Attack and was sure I was going to get a migraine, but I never did.
What would cause the rush in my head and the room spinning?
Could it be something life threatening?
Just to clarify, my therapy includes exposure therapy (facing my fears one step at a time) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Oh man – you poor soul! I know you get odd physical symptoms, but they are very probably created by your mind. The mind can produce any sort of symptom – and it often will create symptoms that “say” to you that something TERRIBLE is wrong!!!

But in fact nothing is wrong. Happens to a lot of people.

You just have to wrestle with these Panic Attacks – listen to your doctor and do you work. You’ll get through it. Plenty of us have had Panic Disorder and lived through it to have normal lives.

There is an interesting book about physical symptoms coming from the mind. Dr. Sarno – “Healing Back Pain” – it’s an older book now and you can get it used for next to nothing off of Amazon. He shows in there how we create all manner of physical symptoms out of nothing. You’ve got people in bed with chronic pain which has no real cause. And in a way, panic disorder is a sort of chronic pain – only panic is less disguised. Panic is right out there in front where you can see it!!!

Good luck with that. It’s a big SOB – you’ll get through it. And when it’s over you’ll be wiser for the experience.
