If the symptoms are not very clear, your doctor can assess whether your anxiety is due to any physical cause or an underlying disease. If this is not the case, he or she can refer you to a psychologist or a mental health specialist to diagnose and treat you as soon as possible.
The specialist will perform a psychological exam where he or she will analyze your mental state and will be able to detect any other condition that usually occurs along with anxiety, the most common of which is depression.
Once the diagnosis is established, treatment will be prescribed, which usually includes psychological therapy and drugs.
Cognitive behavioral therapy has been identified as the best way to treat anxiety disorder, as it helps you realize the origin of your anxiety, giving you techniques to control symptoms and prevent them from having too much influence on your daily activities.
As for medications, treatment focuses on relieving symptoms through anxiolytics and antidepressants, which may have side effects that your doctor will consider and explain to you.
