When the cause of anxiety is identified and treated, complete recovery is often possible. Where no cause can be readily identified, you may feel anxiety for a long time, perhaps your entire life, unless the symptoms are treated. Treatment can result in anxiety being successfully managed if not cured. Excellent medications are available to help many of the symptoms. Counseling with mental-health professionals can be highly effective.
