I have had anxiety for 30 years, xanax helps relax your brain so your not thinking so much and fall asleep. Check with your doctor about your serotonin levels. Anxiety, depression every person who has these has low levels of serotonin in there body. I started taking 5-htp all natural for increasing the serotonin levels in the body, I have know idea how much to take? So I keep taking more to see what helps. My neck is also always stiff and sore, like you not sure what to do about it. If you have any suggestions write me sambaluk@yahoo.com

You are not alone, and having this community is proof. There are medications you can get from your doctor (you may have to go to a different doctor or even a psychiatric doctor if your doctor is not responsive to your requests). There are cognitive things you can do as well, a therapist can recommend books and/or excersizes. There are also physical activities that can help such as breathing excersizes, meditative excersizes (tai chi, qi gong, yoga, etc) that may help your state of mind. I wish you all the best in finding a solution that will work for you.
