I think your doctor is right. Its a good thing that your blood pressure is normal. What you need now is accepting the situation and living with it. Anxiety management is first of a your personal decision , and you see if you decide to live and be happy in life with yourself, most of the symptoms will degrade on their own. It would be advisable to spend more time with your loved ones, avoid isolation and maybe involve your self in some physical activity or group activity that you enjoy. Answer if not well managed could lead to depression. Drugs are available for anxiety, but proof to be generally ineffective when the patient himself is not motivated.
It could be advisable at some point in time to discuss with a psychologist and a psychiatrist, but the key of the treatment depends on your personal effort to motivate yourself, avoid isolation and take your drugs as prescribed in case they are by your physician or psychiatrist.
Quick recovery and just the best,
