Agree with above. Additionally, consider checking B12 and Iron levels, as deficiency in both of these have been correlated with anxiety. Also check your thyroid levels if you haven't already.

In brief: We don't really know

We really don't know if there is a vitamin or mineral deficiency that causes panic attacks.
People who develop panic attacks seem to have a biological or genetic predisposition towards developing them, but environmental stress seems to be a trigger for actually bringing them on.

Some believe low magnesium can affect anxiety but I generally agree with the doctor.
