In brief: Help of professional

I suggest you seek the help of a psychiatrist specializing in anxiety to do the evaluation, if it turns to be mild anxiety disorder then therapy and self help measures are probably enough, however if it turns to be moderate to severe then medication plus all of the above will be necessary to achieve a renission.
