Hey AW...I have suffered from anxiety/panic for many years. The attacks, for me, have come out of nowhere. One of the worst ones I ever had was one night watching Saturday Night Live. It just swept through me for no known reason. Sometimes they are a delayed reaction to something upsetting that might have happened a week before. When you listen to people who have anxiety, they will say things like 'I was just driving along..or I was standing in line at the grocery store..."
Again, if this worries you it is best to get it checked out for your own peace of mind. The real problem with panic attacks is that we tend to associate what we were doing when the attack happened and avoid getting in that situation again. I had an attack in a store once, and wouldn't go shopping alone for five years. It had nothing to do with the store.
Try not to dwell on it, or figure it out. It may never happen again.
