Your description of mild anxiety and some panic attacks suggests a very treatable condition with good prognosis.
Two step process: 1) find a psychotherapist to help review your history and symptoms and 2) get a standard physical with primary care provider to rule out any physical contribution to anxiety like thyroid, blood pressure, and labs like metabolic profile and blood counts.
