What is this?

So once or twice a month (possibly less than that) for the past year I've had this weird thing happen.
I get this strange deja vu feeling out of the blue and then come over really really nauseous and i find it scary. My breathing quickens and it's like my mind is not quite there.
It happened in bed last night and as it was happening I told my husband to please just talk about something anything to try and make it go away. My breathing quickened and I felt scared. It's weird and hard to explain but it feels like I've gone crazy for a few moments.
Dh commented last night that maybe it's a panic attack. Could this be what it is? It's happened several times while driving as well (always in the same place) but don't know what it could be.
I do have anxiety and suffer from stress and am currently on fluoxetine but I've been having these before starting any meds.
