yes! lots of people with anxiety disorders suffer from panic attacks, but there's actually a specific disorder that's directly associated with panic attacks. panic disorder is a type of anxiety disorder that's characterized by frequent and/or recurring panic attacks. people with panic disorder are diagnosed by a licensed psychologist, and are usually treated with a combination of therapy and medication, depending on the severity of it. i don't personally have panic disorder, but i have friends who do, and though it is a chronic illness, with their support system and medications, they are doing well and are healthy and happy.
Yes, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Depression are two of the major disorders associated with panic attacks.
Panic disorder and Anxiety Disorder from panic attacks.
There is actually a "panic disorder" generalized with various symptoms that revolve around anxiety etc. Panic attacks occur frequently, and approximately one in 20 Americans will be diagnosed and treated for panic disorder each year. Panic disorder is more common in females than males (2-to-1 ratio). Scientists have not isolated a single gene in studying panic attacks, but it is generally thought that there is a genetic component to panic disorder. This means that people who have a parent with panic disorder are more likely to develop the disorder themselves. Scientific studies have shown that areas of the brain function differently in people with panic disorder. Inappropriate activation of a region of the brain called the amygdala—which is involved in the fight-or-flight response—has been associated with panic disorder in research studies. However, brain imaging is not a practical clinical tool to make a diagnosis.

Panic disorders, PTSD, and GAD are most often associated with panic attacks. Panic disorders and generalized anxiety disorder differ in that panic disorders involve severe and uncontrollable panic attacks, while generalized anxiety disorder is associated with free-floating and constant anxiety that can escalate into panic attacks. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a disorder that occurs after a traumatic event, involving nightmares and panic attacks and flashbacks to the trauma. In less common cases, panic attacks can also be caused in the midst of manic episodes in bipolar disorder or the depths of major depression. If you're experiencing panic attacks, the ideal thing to do would be to contact a medical professional to receive a diagnosis of any potential disorders you have. If medical expertise isn't available to you, there are many resources on the internet devoted to the identification and management of panic and anxiety attacks.

Anxiety disordes are usually associated with panic attacks, the panic attack themselves are a anxiety disorder in current mental dissorder classification, also, increased arousal, which is a central part of panic attacks, is present in all anxiety dissorders, but also post-traumatic stress disorder, phobias, among others.
