Panic attacks but not anxiety triggered

I hoping someone here has similar experiences to me.
As far as I'm aware I dont suffer from anxiety. I have however had panic atta is for the last 21 years. They are triggered by deja vu.
When I get Deja vu my heart rate starts speeding up, I get disorientated and then get a set of specific images come into my head. Not scary but the same ones every time. At this point the hyperventilating starts.
Doctors dont seem to want to entertain the idea that I get panic attacks without being anxious. I have no other problems or issues just the panic attacks.
I've been to more councillors than I can count and non of them have ever been able to figure out why i get them.
Has anyone else had something similar and might be able to point me in any direction?

I do have both anxiety and panic but the symptoms are different. I have been able to lessen the panic quite a lot by recognizing it as a panic attack when it begins and that it is not rational while deep breathing and removing myself from what is triggering the panic attack. Anxiety is a different animal and I cannot use those techniques with it.
