Yeah anxiety can cause those symptoms.  I sweat a lot from my forehead, not so much my armpit.  I get hot/cold feelings, all kinds of stomach problems.  Your doctor checked you out and said you're fine, so take his word for it.  I also suggest seeing a therapist.  You're young and seeing someone now may help you avoid the bad anxiety habits of a person who's had it for decades.

Unfortunately yes anxiety can do all those things.  It can cause very real physical symptoms.  Most of us have trouble believing that anxiety can be that powerful and cause so many sensations, but it truly can.  If your doctors say that you are ok, you need to learn to trust them.  You will find some relief if you trust your doctors and accept that the symptoms you have are only anxiety and can't truly hurt you.

Also I would say that you are holding yourself to unrealistic expectations if you think your anxiety should just disappear at a certain age like your fathers' did.  Seems like an awful lot of pressure to put on yourself. Remember that everyone and their experiences are different and we can not expect the same results someone else has.  We are all unique as is our journey with anxiety.

It's not what's in front of us that stops us.  It's what's inside that holds us back.

Anxiety happens in loops.  Meaning something triggers your anxiety (say feeling cold) - then your heart begins to pump faster - your body reacts and begins to perspire -  as the worrying increases you take short shallow breaths- this drops you C02 and causes you to feel faint.... all of this increases your anxiety and the symptoms keep looping.
