Hello everybody

I started having this strange feelings,which are similar to the panic attack couple of years ago, I would say around 4 years. In the beginning the panic attacks were very rare. I had quite difficult times around 2 years ago, a lot of stress in my life, although I am young,23 years old. In October 2006 while I was shopping I felt that my vision is starting to be black and then of course I got scared and I had a panic attack, heart beating fast, dizziness. After a short while the bad moment passed and in couple of hours I felt better. Since that day, I started to have panic attacks on a regular basis but without no logical reason, at least not that I know off.
I normaly take regular blood tests every year. The last one was in November 2007, while my health situation was not that great, but still the tests came out to be very good.
This year in June, I went also to a heart checking, and the doctor said to me that my heart is very good, after doing a heart scan.
What would be the reason for this panic attacks? Is there realy a panic disorder or something else?
I've been to couple of doctors and they said that I should have less stress in my life. What advice can you give me?

Thanks in advance!
