In brief: Rule out medical

Always have a thorough medical work-up before attributing symptoms to mental health problems.
Review personal and family history for problems with thyroid, cardiac, and other problems that might simulate anxiety. Also, keep a diary of episodes and associated events. However, obsessing over symptoms can worsen anxiety. Yoga or meditation will help both mental and physical problems.
