Suggest treatment for anxiety and stress

think that I suffer from panic and anxiety-related incidents but I wanted to have your opinion and advice.
Sometimes, I have a hard time getting air into my lungs and I cannot get a full breath in. Eventually, my lungs and throat get really sore. My body will become completely numb and I'll have a light-headed feeling. Other times I will not be able to hear at all and I'll feel like I'm slowly being submerged in water (Sharp pains going up and down my body might occur as well). I will feel completely overwhelmed and the stress and fear that have been around me hit me completely and rather hard. Other than physical symptoms, I believe I emotionally become very vulnerable and extra sensitive.
I wanted to know if I'm right in thinking that this is all from stress and anxiety and if so what you would suggest in solving this problem. Thank you very much
