See below: Talk to your physician to see if there is a physical basis for anxiety, work on finding out what makes you anxious. Try to establish daily routine to bring some predictability in your day; practice deep breathing, relaxation/ guided imagery (you can find scripts on the web); you can work with a therapist to help you guide through the process. Consider medication, if symptoms become overwhelming.

Yes. Manage anxiety: By learning relaxation skills & learning to modify the thoughts, perceptions & beliefs that trigger your anxiety. Learning to calm your body & your mind is the key. You can learn these skills on your own, but having a mental health professional "coach" you is quicker & more effective. Biofeedback helps learn relaxation skills (www.Bcia.Org & www.Aapb.Org). Entrenched anxiety may require meds.

Education: Mental health professionals by interacting with you (talking) may elucidate your situational anxiety, point to triggers you may not be aware of, and as part of their considerable abilities help you gain strategies to manage your anxiety, before resorting to medication. Understanding your personality and problems through talking is a great medical adjunct and is a field of medicine to admire.

None: finding out what is making you anxious is the first step. I would discuss your anxiety with a therapist. If your anxiety is affecting your life style in a significant way, the psychiatrist may prescribe anti-anxiety medication. Screening lab work for thyroid studies and complete blood count would be helpful. techniques like meditation, yoga or deep breathing may decrease your anxiety.
