How long do anxiety symptoms last?!

Question: How long do anxiety symptoms last.?
Ive had a couple of panic attacks for the past month and have some symptoms. One of them is that I have loss my appetite, but its weird because I can eat things that I really enjoy eating.

I get panicky sometimes when that happens. I dont know what to do anymore, any help would be appreciated THANKSHealth Question & Answer
