In brief: Typically not direct

Hashimoto's will have a brief high thyroid state before the patient becomes low thyroid; when this brief period of too much thyroid hormone happens, the patient may be more agitated.
Also if the patient's thyroid medication is appropriate replaced, panic attacks would not be associated with the disease directly; however any one with a chronic disease is more prone to anxiety including panic attacks.

Possible, if metabolism is raised by overactive thyroid.
