Not panic attacks, but I had an experience that might possibly be related. Last August, I had an injury, fell and hit my chin, causing a whiplash-type neck injury. That triggered post-traumatic fibromyalgia. I did experience a very unusual period of euphoria (a few hours long) the evening before I first began to develop the flu-like fibromyalgia symptoms. (Of course, I thought it was flu, and it took several months be be properly diagnosed, but that's another story.) The euphoria was something I had never experienced quite that way before, and does seem to me to be related to whatever chemical or other changes in my brain turned on the fibromyalgia.
