It really does annoy me when idiotic people say that a very unpleasant problem like Pabnic Disorder " is all in the head". WHere else should it be ? That's like saying that appendicitis is "all in the appendix".
The important thing is that you need to get assessed by a suitable psychiatrist and properly treated to recover from this unpleasant and very genuine condition.
You need much more than just "support" - proper medication, and CBT-style counselling can clear this up properly.
If your fiancee is so little prepared to be sympathetic and try to understand the medical condition you have, he doesn't deserve to be a fiancee - you deserve much better than him, and more understanding than he seems able to give.
Smoking isn't good for you, and wont relieve your panic disorder. Proper meds ( like drugs also used to treat depression )are needed and effecive.
You don't mention where "abroad" you are, but arrange to see a psychiatrist for assessment and a discussion of treatment options, and you should soon be able to feel much better.
