The best thing to do is seek medical advice. I'm not sure where you're from or how your health system works, but I'll try to give you some info on how it works here in Scotland. You can speak to a GP who will help you with medication, finding what is right for you. If you don't want to take meds, or want help as well as meds then your GP should be able to refer you to someone who can help more, a counsellor/therapist or something. Since this is all free, you can expect to be waiting a while. An appointment with a GP could take weeks, then another couple of weeks before you get a response from counsellor/therapist. After that, you'll need to wait a couple of weeks, maybe even months before you get your first appointment with them. If you have money, you can get help much more quickly of course.
I've had 2 rounds of counselling, the first was absolutely useless. The 2nd was with a new person, and while it hasn't really helped calm my anxiety, she has helped me with a lot of personal stuff I needed help with. I was also told that even though I wanted to avoid meds, I should see my GP and find something that works for me(which is kinda what I thought the outcome would be).
I also want to say don't put yourself down or think that your anxiety is less important because you're not broke. It's just not true. Your anxiety is as important as anyone else's.
If you're just looking for advice, there's the usual bullshit that you probably already know;
Exercise regularly, eat healthy, sleep a sufficient amount, and keep busy.
Something that can definitely help, practice breathing exercises. When you start to feel anxious, focus on breathing to keep your heart rate under control.
