I have been suffering from severe anxiety lately. I have no appetite and my heart beat goes crazy at random times. Is this a reason to seek a doctor?

Yes. Either it is a psychological or medical disorder- both are important to your well being and this needs to be evaluated by a pcp.
Yes. If it's interfering with your life, you should have it check out. There might be an organic cause that could be easily treated. Your doctor can run labs on you. Must rule out thyroid disease, at the very least.
