In brief: Not Usually Related

It is possible to have panic attacks and bipolar disorder, but one does not cause the other, and there is not a common connection between the two.

In brief: Usually unrelated

Panic can occur as part of mania, so it's possible to be manic and panicky at the same time.
But panic or anxiety attacks are generally unrelated to mania. Some types of drug intoxication (e.g., stimulants) can produce both, so if i were evaluating someone with this i'd think about drugs as a possible cause.
