Freaking out!

I didn't sleep well last night so of course my go to was coffee this morning... I don't drink coffee everyday but I drink it quite a bit & have NEVER gotten this affect from it. I can't stop moving around & im really shaky & jittery & a bit dizzy & it's causing me to have a full on panic attack & it won't go away. Is it just the caffeine? I have never experienced this before & im scared. Please help!

Since this post is 16 hours old, I'm hoping it went away.  Who knows why these things happen?  Certainly caffeine isn't great for anxiety sufferers, but apparently it's not been a problem for you, but added to the fact that something kept you from sleeping well, it was probably a combination of things and you associating some odd physiological symptoms with how you felt before when you were anxious.
