In brief: Panic
Sure. Eating crackers and running blood sugar levels and history of diabetes on medications can differentiate the two.

In brief: Yes
There is a good deal of symptom overlap between a panic attack and symptomatic hypoglycemia and one could fairly easily be mistaken for the other. Also, don't prematurely rule out the possibility of both conditions co-occurring.
