So I've been working at my company for 8 months now as a business analyst. Both senior consultants on my project are leaving, with no replacements in sight, so the project work is most likely going to fall to me. I am already doing most of the work of a full fledged consultant as defined by the companies description. I'm only getting paid 55k a year which I'm being told by other employees is below industry standard (they take around 70% of my billable rate) and I'm feeling kind of stuck. Advise?

Day 2 of being back in the office after a 3 month FMLA. My panic attacks and anxiety are just as worse as it was. I thought the 3 month time gave me perspective and I recovered. But feels like some sort PTSD. Day 1 - was already overloaded with tasks, really early morning client calls. I feel so helpless and feeling so overwhelmed, heart has been racing, can’t stop thinking that I am going to fail, but cant tell it out loud. I don’t want to go back to the miserable me, depressed and burntout.
