How do you know for "a fact" this isn't anxiety? It's a pretty common symptom, after all. I know you say you're poor, but, well, dance and surfing are pretty expensive pastimes, so I'm thinking you can afford to see a therapist and get to the bottom of your anxiety since the doc has ruled out medical causes and you confess to having an anxiety problem. You're (thankfully) too young for medication, so therapy is the way to go. Given your lifestyle, have you ever looked into meditation?
