Can panic attacks cause strokes? Had 24 holter, echocardiogram, stress test, and renal ultrasound all normal. BP can get up to 180/100 sometimes.

Possible, but...: It would be most reasonable for you to see your doctor timely. How to get a better care? Follow instructions in https://ebettercare.com/feel-become-sick/. Known to us, panic attacks alone may increase blood pressure but, at age 27, the odd to rupture blood vessel leading to stroke is much lower than that in the elderly. Nonetheless, you should be timely followed as advised.
