You could try moving your ~/.config dir aside and logging in again.
That will mean loosing all your configuration however.

If the issue is in your local config, removing and re-installing the

Is there anything in your ~/.xsession-errors file?

Sounds like the panel might be dying? Can you hit alt-f2 and get the
'run command' dialog? If so can you try running 'xfdesktop' in it?
Does that bring things back up?
