My heart rate at rest or sitting never goes below 106 & is 90% of the time between 112-120. Thus causing or triggering panic attacks & anxiety attacks?

In brief: Anxiety

Yes, a fast heart rate can cause sensations of anxiety and possibly trigger a panic attack.
If your heart rate is always over 100, I'd recommend being seen by your doctor as soon as possible to work up possible underlying causes. Hope this helps
