Thank you for posting your query.

It is possible that these episodes are related to the panic attacks.

However, it is also important to exclude any underlying TIAs (transient ischemic attacks) (lack of blood flow to the brain), as a cause of your symptoms.

You can get screened for the risk factors for TIAs such as diabetes, high BP, high cholesterol, etc and consult a neurologist.

You could benefit from aspirin tablets.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
