Anxiety Disorder ?

Hello, From past couple of months, i have been struggling with anxiety disorders. Symptoms: Random heart palpitations, tingling sensation in hands, muscle twitching (without any pain), racing thoughts and shallow breathing. Since these symptoms match other neurological disorders, hence i am worried. These attacks were induced after a heavy session of marijuana ingestion during shivratri. I had been using marijuana for recreational means since last year on almost a daily basis. Since the attacks began, i have reduced its use to a larger extent. Also, at certain times, i would think and brainstorm on a problem (business) for 3-4 days in a row, to the extent that it even forms a part of my dream. I face difficulty trying to sleep. But my sleeps are complete. Should i consult a neurologist?
