Hi my 6 year old daughter has been having full blown panic attacks , it usually occurs right before bed time . It breaks my heart seeing her go through this & I don't know what to do :( , has anyone else here experienced this?

Bless her sweet heart! (and yours too Mom)
Has anything out of the ordinary happened lately that you know of? Sometimes, kids process things in a weird way or make connections we don't think about. Have you tried talking with her about how she's feeling?
Are her bedtime and bedtime routine the same every night? Knowing what comes next helps my child. We have a "checklist" of 5 jobs to be done.
If this continues, I'd give her pediatrician a call. There could be something underlying that a doc can help her with. It's torture when our kids are hurting. Hang in there and seek help if it continues or you have trouble pinpointing what is the cause.
