If it just lasted a minute or two it is probably just from being in panic mode making you not able to think right. As long as it doesn't happen when you aren't having a panic, then I wouldn't worry about it.
If it happens again during a panic you might mention it to your doctor though I am not sure it would be a problem.
How old are you? Have you been to a therapist who specializes in anxiety treatment who can teach you some breathing exercises and meditation techniques that might bring you some relief and help you figure this out?
I'm glad you've talked to a health care professional about this. Nurse practitioners sometimes take more time than doctors these days. :>) But that is just the first step. If you are suffering frequent panic attacks or high anxiety, I'd make sure to go back to your primary care office and consider A. a psychologist to do talk therapy and B. a psychiatrist to take your mental health care one step further. Let us know how you are doing. Good luck
I will say, my own preference is to see a psychologist first to see if this can be solved without the use of medication. If the psychologist sees you need it, he or she will refer you to a psychiatrist. The problem with nurse practitioners and general docs isn't the time they spend with you only, it's the amount of education they get in mental illness, which is a very specialized field. Psychologists study for many many years before getting certified to practice -- grad school alone is 5 years, and usually they studied it in undergrad before that. Psychiatrists study medicine first, as do general docs, and there is very little mental illness training there. Psychiatrists then do a residency and further training divided between about a year of medication training and a year of psychology usually taught by a psychologist. So by time spent training, the best ones for diagnosis is a good psychologist. For medication, it's a psychiatrist because they just do it more often and studied some of the special pharmacology involved, which regular docs don't do. As for nurse practitioners and physician's assistants, they just study the most basic things and then learn more from whoever they end up working for. But they have very little formal training, and most can't even properly diagnose a wart from a mole. It's not a rap on them, this stuff is just very hard to do well thought it's very easy to just do.
It does sound like it is time for a psychiatrist. I think that would be a good next step for you. Good luck
