It doesn't really sound like it was a panic attack. Usually panic attacks consist of extreme shortness of breath and feelings like you're going to die. I've been getting them for the past year but I've recently gotten prescribed a beta blocker for high blood pressure and haven't had any panic attacks so far and it's been about 2 weeks give or take
I've had episode where I feel very uneasy. Nothing specifically provokes it. I felt light headed, nauseous. One of the really bad episode I went to the ER checked my blood pressure and heart rate, the blood pressure was actually up a little. Heart rate was fine. I always wondered if they were atypical presentation of panic attack.
Anyways you definitely should seek a doctor to rule out something severe.
In addition, just make sure you live healthy. East well, exercise, plenty of sleep, sunlight.
Anything relating to panic attacks and depression at any level at all... my advice to seek the professional help of a psychiatrist as a first step.
Things like "herbal supplements" "anxiety drills" are not going to address chemical imbalances in the mind.
I cannot speak for anyone other than myself but for me it had to do with pride and "I don't need that" and "that won't teach me to get laid"
^all of these things were/are true too... but I wish I had listened to this advice I am giving here decades ago...
Hopefully someone reads this and they listen and it improves their life.
And before anyone asks, yes I would suggest you do AA drills at same time as seeing docotors... the doctor ain't going to teach u to get laid. But just like the doctor aint going to help u get laid, GLL is not going to help you fix your brain chemistry issues. GLL is not a doctor, GLL cannot/does not give medical advice...
Panic attacks/depression require medical attention... the AA drills are for people with "normal" levels of anxiety.
As someone who's had depression and anxiety all their life even as a kid and having tried various medications and drugs, I'd like to offer that doctors get paid to push you pills. How is it a chemical imbalance when they don't even take any tests to see what the actual chemical situation is in your brain? Not to mention, psychiatric issues can actually cause the neurotransmitter balance to change in your brain. All medication is going to do is mask some of the symptoms of these conditions, while giving you a nice assortment of side effects. The only way to actually make any difference in the conditions themselves is to learn to think different. This can be done in various ways, such as psychotherapy, exposure therapy, spiritual growth etc. The main thing is you stop looking for a quick fix to solve all your problems, and take responsibility for bettering yourself.

Lexapro is definitely helping me realise how messed up my thinking was in the past. How I've not been able to enjoy my entire life because of it. I have experienced some side effects such as insomnia, and delayed ejaculation which I will bring up with my doctor. The reason I decided to get help was because I've tried dealing it on my own and even though I thought I was improving, I seemed to be stuck in the same place, my life would repeat the same cycle every year. And, I slowly realised that I'm 18 now and my situation seemed to be getting worse. I couldn't remember the past 8 months. My focus in school got worse over time. I had lost interest in a lot of things fand was stuck in a rut for a long time and became extremely forgetful.
I am definitely going to expose myself to situations I fear, and lexapro helps me in doing that.
not to send you down a rabbit hole but I've studied some of this stuff for a while and it looks like us(as in humanity/modern medicine) doesn't actually know whats going on in our brains, a lot of this mental deterioration where you lose energy, memory gets fked, practically lose your mind and are just a mess could actually come from systemic infections that are damaging your brain, in africa they've got stuff like malaria and schistosomiasis that'll straight up kill you. in the developed world we've got all kinds of stuff like borrelia, bartonella etc and despite rarely being fatal man can they screw you up hard.
dunno that there's much use even typing this up other than making the point that you most likely won't find answers.
That's scary. Though I don't feel that way anymore. My memory,energy and emotions have stabilised and are back to normal again. I guess I was just stuck in a rut for a few years and had messed up priorities cause I was not thinking clearly.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
