Our expert says:
Panic attacks / panic disorder responds well to CBT-style counselling / therapy and to drugs also used to treat depression. But you need a proper assessment by a psychiatrist to confirm the diagnosis, as there are also other situations which may cause similar symptoms - especially if I understand you correctly, that this was one single episode, and you don't have a history of a long series of such episodes.
And as Liza wisely mentions, this sort of thing can easily become a vicious cycle where you ca become so anxious about the possibility of a further panic attack that this either precipitates another attack or a least causes an unpleasant period of anxious anticipation.
