1st things 1st: It is often hard to know if anxiety is causing symptoms. Symptoms are the way we feel, everything we feel can be influenced by anxiety. These symptoms can be caused by many things. If anxiety is your worst symptom, then consider starting by addressing that. If any of these are left over, then they can be addressed independently. Hope that helps!
