Since this was your first anxiety attack I'm wondering if there are some stressor in your life currently that might be causing this. Often, we don't realize that we are under stress until our body tells us by doing something like this. I know it's quite upsetting, can be frightening, but you shouldn't be embarrassed. You have done nothing for which you need to be embarrassed. It's your body responding to something either internal or external.
I see that your prescriber has done the prudent thing and has given you something to use as needed. This is always a good idea, but you need to do a bit of work on your own, too.
As I said, please review your current situation and see if there is anything that might be causing you some stress or where you have neglected yourself in terms of diet, sleep or social activities. All of these are vital to maintain our physical and mental health.
I would also suggest that you begin engaging in some self-help techniques, such as relaxation breathing, mild exercise and positive self talk.
