Yep, I would make a doctor appointment. For every new symptom I got, I would usually make a doctor appt. If he told me it was anxiety, I didn't go back for that symptom. Sometimes just knowing it's nothing serious takes care of the feelings.
In the beginning of these anxiety/panic attacks, it can be very scary. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was always checking my body. I was scared, scared to be alone, scared to go anywhere far from home. I was depressed. I cried a lot. Family and boyfriend told me to snap out of it. Actually, some people have been able to "snap out of it". They find out these symptoms are being caused by themselves and they go on with their lives.
Mind you, panic attacks arise on their own. Out of the blue. You will feel better! See the doctor as you feel is necessary. Then begin to ignore the symptoms. They will slowly get better.
