Hi, Izzy,

What is the difference between

1. I was starting to having aniexty and panic attack.

2. I was starting to have aniexty and panic attack.

(1) is not correct. The verb "start" can be followed by "to"-infinitive, not by "to"+V-ing. With a progressive tense, I think an infinitive is preferable to avoid the presence of two verbs in -ing, as in (2).

3. I started having anxiety and panic attacks when I was young.

You can see the difference in meaning between (2) and (3), can't you?
