I think it is a good idea to go to the doctor and get signed off for work. It should not hinder your chances of getting another job. It sounds like you may benefit from a break as you are feeling very anxious over work.

You are actually very brave and strong. Despite having anxiety and finding work challenging you have continued to stay in your job and you try your best to go into work.

If your in the UK get a sick line off the doc for a start. That will give you 5 days. Then take a min and be honest with yourself. Are you fit to work. Is this a momentary lapse or somerhing else. Answer that then go from there.
