Can anxiety attacks happen even if one is not stressed in any way?

I would have to agree.  My anxiety sometimes seems to come out of nowhere but quite often is related to the amount of stress or the events going on in my life.  I also believe that is what can make anxiety so stressful when everything seems to be going fine and then it hits you out of nowhere.

For me, counseling was the best choice I made in dealing with it.  One, it gave me the knowledge about what it was and shed some light on a subject I initially did not know much about and second it gave me the tools to confront it.  Keep us posted!

Yes, they can hit us anywhere, at anytime regardless of how we're feeling at the moment. Our first panic attack is how many of us have learned that we have anxiety.  Anxiety can be caused by a traumatic event from our past which we never really dealt with properly or may have even forgotten about.....when this happens it comes back demanding to be dealt with in the form of anxiety and/or depression.  Therapy can help us learn what this event was...deal with it and ease our anxiety...but for many we never learn why we have anxiety or depression. As scary as panic attacks are they're harmless, but they can cause our anxiety to build and build so nipping this in the bud is imperative.  Take care.
