    Absolutely, its very common and very distressing. It used to send me into panic too, and still does even though I know why it happens

    Yes and absolutely u describe a panic attack with anxiety very well.

    it just takes over every thought . Very uncontrollable.

    now I have learned my triggers and can cope much better.

    This often happens to me also. I did not realize it was related to my anxiety but it does make sense. Sometimes it seems like I can't even hear what is around me!
