Brief Answer:
Need medication

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
Not to worry.
Whatever symptoms you describe suggest that you have anxiety disorder.
As you described you are having panic attacks and with treatment experienced side effects so you quit it, but there are many medication which has less side effect and better result.

First of all detail regarding your symptoms are necessary.
Do you have any digestion problems like acidity?

There are many medications like Desvenlaflexine, venlaflexine, bupropion, sertraline which has good effect on anxiety particularly panic attacks.
You can also take benzodiazepines like clonazepam mouth dissolving tablet for SOS.
As you are very concerned regarding sexual and other side effect for you desvenlaflexine and bupropion has good choice of drug.
Discuss with your treating doctor about alternative medications.

Also do exercise regularly and meditation, yoga which also very helpful.

Psychotherapy particularly cognitive behavior therapy has good result.

Awaiting you response.

Thank you

Regarding the soar throat, I have a worry it might be cancer is that a in my head? I'm going to see a doctor as soon as I get back from the slope. I just can't get that out of my head. If I do have acidity problems I'm unaware of how they feel I do have an acid feeling in my chest once an awhile.

Brief Answer:
Not to worry about cancer.

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,

sore throat is not sign of cancer it may have many cause like upper respiratory tract infection, common cold, etc..
sometimes in anxiety also due to dryness of mouth you feel that you have sore throat.

You don't have any other features which supports cancer diagnosis like difficulty in taking food, bleeding in vomiting, weight loss etc...

Not to worry about cancer at all.

For acidity you can take any antacid before food.

Due to stress and anxiety also acidity is worsened so keep calm and not worry.

Thank you
