From all I read and have learned over the years, just about anything may be at the root of the anxiety. You have Health Anxiety and panic attacks are sudden, discrete periods of intense anxiety, fear and discomfort that are associated with a variety of somatic and cognitive symptoms. The onset of these episodes is typically abrupt, and may have no obvious trigger.

Gentle Hugs to you.
