I too suffer from anxiety/panic and at times it can be crippling.  If you are asking for ways to maybe help you cope I can give you some ideas but I am not sure if they will work for you.  My anxiety has been really high the last week so I started drinking chamomile tea which seems to help calm me.  I am trying not to go on meds if I can help it so I just started taking a multi vitamin and increased the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables I eat.  I need to start exercising more so I am thinking about starting yoga.  When I feel a panic attack coming on I do things to try and get my mind off of it...Like count backwards from 100 - 0 or say the alphabet backwards.  If I mess up I start over until I get it right.  I also work on my breathing.  I know it might seem nutty but if it helps it is worth it.  I honestly think for some people like myself increase in anxiety symptoms can be hormonal. I sure hope I was able to give you some helpful advice.
