I'm not a doctor, but yeah, you sound like you have a lot of anxiety.  The good thing about anxiety symptoms is that they can't hurt you.  The bad thing is they still feel pretty crappy. 

Since you sound like you've been checked and made sure you're healthy, your next step should perhaps be finding a professional who can teach you how to manage your anxiety and  move past it.

With therapy and meds you have to find the right combination for you.  Baseline anxiety meds like SSRI's can take several weeks to build up in your blood to reach a therapeutic level.  The best psy therapy for anxiety is CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), it'll help talk yourself down when the anxiety is high. I've had all your problems Wishful and have been checked out by multiple doctors, we're all in the same boat.

There are a lot of medications and types of therapy.  Keep trying and don't give up.  I know it's hard - I still haven't found something that works perfectly for me and I've been at this for a long time.  But some things work more than others and I've found things that help.  You will too.
