do I need professional help??

Lately I've been having panic and anxiety attacks.I'm 16 and this has been going on for the past 2 months.I'm unable to concentrate or focus very well.at times I start randomly laughing or screaming.I can't breathe if someone asks me a question and I hear weird stuff at night so I can't sleep.my finals are in a month and I just can't cope with this.I can't tell my parents as we're already in financial crisis and help seems expensive.I've looked for symptoms online and it suggests that I may have schizophrenia but that scared me and my condition worsened.I'm alone at home and I lock myself in my room afraid that the cat might attack me.the only thing that calms me is eating large spoonfuls of coffee. I'm just afraid and embarrassed to talk to anyone and since I live in a third world country I'm afraid people may label me as insane.I don't know what to do please help me here

Hey there - what you're describing doesn't sound like just anxiety. These symptoms sound extreme and you should most definitely seek professional help if you can.  I understand it may be expensive, but you're worth it, don't you agree?

Wish you the best of luck.
