In brief: The term
"mental breakdown" has no meaning to a doc because that term is used by people to mean almost anything.
Panic attacks can make you feel like you are "going crazy" but you aren't!

In brief: Panic is dangerous
Yes, some people have indeed killed themselves during a panic episode.
..Get professional help: meds and therapy. Adjunctive self help through yoga/meditation/mindfulness/holotropic breathwork/tai chi are also very helpful in the long run.
