Am I having an anxiety attack?

Am I having an anxiety attack? Frequently when encountering traffic jams or before some work meetings, my heart rate would start racing to about 120 bpm or higher and head will start feeling pressurised and pounding. Sometimes even feeling flushed or light headed. Have seen quite a few doctors but all pointed to stress. Is there anything else I can do or any medication that can help? I have a pacemaker implanted about 11 years ago for vasol vagal syncope and also a bone marrow transplant abt 10 years ago too. Sometimes it's so bad that I will have stomach cramps. Thanks.
