You stated you are experiencing "feeling a little dizzy and lighthead, have had some trouble breathing, sweating, trembling legs, and overall weakness."
Yes, you could be having a panic attack but you could also be having a medical problem. I would call your physician and ask to talk to the triage nurse for futher orders as to what is best for you to do.
If it is panic attack remember it is self limiting and it cannot harm you.
Please call now.

Hi, welcome to A/P forum,
What you describe does sound very familiar and the worry you speak of could be contributing. Let's hope this passes quickly and does not return. If not we here are full of advice. Take gentle care.
A little while after I posted, I cried a little and had some comfort food, and then I felt better. I used to get panic attacks in high school whenever I was stressed, but it's been a couple years so I guess I forgot how it feels.
When I have anxiety really bad I cry alot, then I wash my face in cold water. The tears return but I keep letting them out as bottling them up does not work for me.
Glad to hear you are better.
