Hi there --

Hearing voices and feeling paranoid are classic schizophrenic symptoms. However, I also hear voices but am not schizophrenic -- I have psychotic depression. So just because you hear things and are paranoid it doesn't necessarily mean that you have schizophrenia (although you might). For what it's worth I'd say that you definetly have something more than just anxiety; but as for schizophrenia, I don't know...

Hope this helps.
