Anxiety Attacks

One of the stranger chrons symptoms I used to suffer from was anxiety attacks. Real intense panic attacks that would result in me shaking uncontrollably, my legs becoming weak, my heart racing, my lungs feeling like they were contracting making it difficult to breathe etc.

I was just wondering if you or someone you know has ever suffered with similar symptoms as a result of chrons. What they did to alleviate it, did they find out why this happens?

I was also hoping to see how rare this symptom was.
