Symptom like a surge, flow, or like a tidal wave

I get what I call a surge on occasion that is very disconcerting to me. It feels like this buildup of 'something' that starts in the lower part of my body, reaches my head and then goes back down. It starts with a lower intensity, and builds to a greater intensity and then backs back down. Almost like a wave that builds in the ocean, hits the beach, crashes and folds back into the ocean. I can't really determine when or why it happens, if something causes it, or it precipitates some other medical issue. I do have high blood pressure, and anxiety attacks, and long-term depression that is treated in a constant manner. I don't know if this particular symptom is a precursor to something ominous or part of an ongoing part of something not yet identified. It makes me nervous and uneasy. It lasts about 1-2 days. Is there anyone out there with a similar symptom or have an answer? I would love to get some feedback. Thanks in advance for your help.
