Welcome to healthcare Magic!
Anxiety and panic attack are the continuum of the same disease spectrum. You should get evaluation by a local psychiatrist he will know suitable antianxiety medicine regimen to comfort you.
After two weeks on treatment you will be able to drive like you could do in past.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
