Default Waking up in a panicked state

My dreams aren't nightmares most night (thankfully that changed), and I can't remember if they're necessarily even bad dreams. All I know is how I feel. When I finally wake up my chest aches and my throat is dry like I've been hyperventilating (basically I feel like I I've been having a panic attack). I'd say this could be sleep apnea, I don't even snore, let alone quit breathing. When I wake up, I feel like I just fought my way out of a coma and finally escaped the purgatory of my mind. Maybe this could be physical but I can't think of any health issues that would cause this. Nocturnal panic attacks were brought to my attention but I'm not certain of that either. Anyone have any ideas? I should also add that I wake up sweating every time and can never get any sleep over 4 1/2 hours.
