Baby screams when i leave the room

Please help!!! My baby is 8 months old and was a brilliant sleeper until a month ago. I put her in her cot and the second I leave the room she absolutely screams the place down. She will only fall asleep if I am standing over her cot stroking her face. I've tried just going back into her room and lying her back down and walking out but she just gets hysterical to the point she makes herself sick. She now wakes several times and is hysterical as soon as she wakes up. Do I just do the "cry it out" and see if that works?
