Link between low bicarbonate and panic disorder

I have very recently begun experiencing panic attacks, and on a relatively frequent and sometimes prolonged basis.  Bloodwork done a month ago, and blood work reconfirmed today, indicates consistently low serum bicarbonate levels (19-20).  Does the literature suggest that low bicarbonate may induce panic episodes, and if so, can restoring bicarbonate levels to normal range help resolve the problem?  Or is low bicarbonate simply a by-product of the panic disorder itself?  Note that diabetes and anemia have been ruled out as associated conditions.
