Yes: Ask your pcp for a referral to a therapist or psychiatrist for an evaluation. Don't delay. An untreated anxiety disorder often leads to isolation and depression. Anxiety is treatable. I hope you take that step as soon as possible. Great you asked here for help. Good luck.

Therapy?: Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.

Yes: 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.
