Thank you for your question and welcome to Health Central's Anxiety Community.

 

I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice.

 

The first step would be for you to make an appointment with your doctor and discuss the reasons you believe you have anxiety. Your doctor will do an examination and rule out any physical causes of your symptoms. If he or she feels you may have anxiety, he may refer you to a therapist or psychiatrist that specializes in treating anxiety.
