HelloI am not sure what your question is.We answer questions here, we do not treat or diagnose.Just given your description, this is psychiatric.Here is what you should do.First, see your regular doctor to make sure you don't have an illness such as hypothyrodism, or other illness that can affect you psychiatrically.Once you are cleared, ask for a refer to a psychiatrist.Possibilities here are not just anxiety, but also depression, OCD, bi- polar illness and even skizoaffective disorder or psychosis.It requires an extensive interview and testing to see if you have anything more than anxiety.There are effective medical treatments and in some cases psychological therapies for these disorders.OK, so that is an initial answer….Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
