What you have described here could be an epileptic seizure. As you are predicting, it even could be a panic attack. In either cases she definitely needs attention from a specialist.

Please consult a neurologist with priority & rule out any sort of imbalance in neuronal activity. You may follow it up with  a psychiatrist consultation if suggested by the neurologist. A pharmacotherapy could be followed up with psychotherapy if required to address the anxiety associated with the attack.

Take Care.

Next Steps
Consult a Neurologist with priority

I think is seeking attention and expressing it through her fear and behaviours like those.
Maybe from her perspective she is not loved the way she wanted.
OR ,  she is tired in trying her expectations as love and care from some of ur family members.
Think  or talk to her personally.
Next Steps
If  u feel she is not cooperating for those,  Do rake her to a Psychological Counsellor in the city u live in and give her the space to express her feelings and emotions.
