Medical exam: There are many possible causes. Before attributing your symptoms to anxiety, a medical exam is in order to rule out possible medical conditions. However, if you have been suffering from anxiety for 7 months, you should be getting treatment for anxiety. Get a medical workup to rule out medical conditions, and see a mental health professional for help with anxiety.
