When will this aniexty go away?

Reason: Anxiety is an outward manifestation of an internal problem. It will go away when the reason is found and taken care of. Sometimes you may succeed in alleviating anxiety symptoms, but if the cause is not found and treated, the symptoms tend to return. More information about your situation would be helpful in determining the cause and appropriate treatment.

First try relaxation: You should be able to get some relief. Relaxation techniques, meditation, deep breathing, learning to stop negative thoughts are first-line do-it-yourself helpful approaches. You may need help learning these from a therapist, or a chance to talk about what is causing it. There are anti-anxiety medicines that can help, but usually best when paired with talking and/or cognitive behavioral therapy.
