I am a 16 year old girl I have severe


Q: I am a 16 year old girl. I have severe anxiety but have never consulted a doctor about it before. I have panic attacks, which end once I am taken out of the situation that caused it and are characterized primarily by a rapid heart rate and uncontrollable shaking, or I have drawn out anxiety attacks lasting anywhere from a couple hours to a couple weeks. In the longer anxiety attacks, I experience the same rapid heart rate and shaking, but my appetite is almost entirely gone. The last time I experienced one of these I lost nearly 10 pounds in a week. I just want to know what I should do about this, whether through medication or otherwise.
