Yes but since its: so vague- check a thorough checkup with a MD asap and let them know the pattern of your symptoms. When else do you get anxious. Is there a family history. First you rule out any medical causes then go for psychological ones. So its a MD first then PhD/Psyd to further explain whats going on. good luck.
