Anxiety and getting panic attacks, gets sudden dropping feeling when speed up or travelling down. How to get rid of it?

Hello, I m 15 and my mum tends to get many panic attacks and suffers from anxiety . Before the last couple of months I have never noticed any signs like this myself but recently when in a vehicle like a car or bus I suddenly feel very anxious and when i think about it too much I get this sudden dropping feeling when it is sped up or travelling down a hill. It s always far worse the more I think about it. I m going on holiday in summer and I haven t been on a plane in 9 years so I am very worried about what I am going to be like on there and what can I do to get rid of it, Thanks.

THE BASIC TREATMENT OF THIS DISORDER IS TO PSYCHOEDUCATE THE FAMILY MEMBER THAT NOTHING SERIOUS WILL HAPPENED SO PLEASE NOT TO PAY ATTENTION TOWARDS PATIENTS PHYSICIAL SYMPOTOMS THIS IS CALLED CUTTING OF SECONDARY GAIN AND BASIC PRINCIPAL OF THERAPY.
IN DRUGS HE CAN BE GIVEN A LOW DOSES ANTIDEPRESSANT( SSRI) AND A SHORT ACTING BENZODIAZEPIN DURING HER ATTACK .
