What stood out for me here (probably because I'm dealing with it in my own life), was the lack of honest communication.

I had my first (and so far only) panic attack - which was emotionally based - though I never told him that
Several days later he asked me if this was all causing me too much pain and anxiety as he didn't want me to suffer. I told him I was ok with this
It really does help to let your partner know you are struggling with these issues. "Toughing it out" just hurts you both. I know you wanted to be OK with things, but you really weren't. Who knows, by sharing the fact that you were struggling, even when you didn't think it was reasonable, you might have been able to get to a resolution that worked for you both. RedPepper had some very good questions.
