can panic attacks (not just anxiety) occur non-stop?

Shouldn't: Usually a panic attack peaks within 10 minutes and then symptoms begin to subside (with possible on-going anxiety). Although there are some people who have experienced multiple daily panic attacks - the active phase should not be continuous.
