Can anxiety symptoms go on for months on end with having symptoms on a daily basis?

Anxiety: If not treated, & if medical causes are ruled out, it is possible.

Yes: It seems that your anxiety is taking over your life. Definitely worth seeing a psyciatrist and begin treatment or, if already in treatment, the treatment plan needs to be adjusted to match your current , more intense, symptoms.

Need to rule out medical causes first, such as anemia, thyroid issues, medications, etc.

I agree with the other professionals here. I'll add that keeping a log of the anxiety free periods of each day is also important.
