Michelle, it might be a panic attack, but it might also be something else like a nerve being pinched in your neck. The best would be to get a second opinion from a good neurologist and see what he says. If it is due to panic attacks and hyperventilation, he will tell you so and give you the correct treatment. Good luck.
