The feelings you have described make it difficult for you to function and hold a job. That is a sign that something is wrong. Everyone experiences anxiety on occasion, but it should not inhibit one’s ability to function in everyday life.
Contact your primary care physician about this matter. Describe your symptoms. They may prescribe medication for immediate relief and will likely refer you to a mental health professional. The mental health professional will evaluate your symptoms and determine the best course of treatment. Both medication and psychotherapy can help reduce or eliminate anxiety. Don’t wait to seek help. There’s no reason to wait when good help is available. Good luck and please take care.
