It's tough I know, but Dont Google your symptoms hun you are going to cause yourelf more anxiety.

Increased heartrate well not always be a part of an attack. I get the anxious feeling like my heart is going crazy then i check my pulse only for it to be in a normal rate.

When your mind is anxious it's hard to stay focussed its okay that well happen. As for your little ones I know it helps explaining it to them what is going on with you. I told my lil ones that sometimes I get strong emotions/sensations that scare me and that it makes me hyperventalate or cry, and that I just need a few minutes to compose myself. And that way they know it's not their fault you know? or just make sure they are in a safe room and go to the restroom splash some water on your forearms and face take a few deep breaths until it passes and try to focus on them to destract you from your attack :)
