I don't think there is a great difference anxiety is worrying about everything and fear of things, which triggers off the panic attack most of the time. The panic attack to me is extremely frightening. and sometimes I can be feeling fine and have a full blown out panic attack without the anxious build up. or just days of constant anxiety without a panic attack I can't understand any of it myself. I know that didn't really answer your question but maybe someone else can.

They are different but one in the same. Make sense? They unfortunately go hand in hand and dealing with one or the other or both can be extremely stressful

They are different. Panic, as a general rule, is not over something specific. "No reasonable cause". Can occur out of nowhere, without any reason at all. Sudden. And it feeds off itself, you panic because you're panicking, if that makes sense. Whereas anxiety is excessive worry over something specific. You can see it coming, and it builds. They feel the same, when they full on attack, but they are different. One can have Panic Disorder without Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and vice versa.

I believe panic is a more acute and intense assault of anxiety, whereas general anxiety is more chronic and more invasive throughout your day to day life. Generally a panic attack will not last extremely long (though it can), whereas a more "mild" (for lack of a better word) sense of anxiety can last indefinitely.
