You are correct that this is not the best forum for you. Nevertheless, I can tell you with certainty that anxiety is a major contributor to your symptoms (if not the sole contributor).
I suggest that you seek some help for your anxiety. You will thank me i promise. Then, if you continue to experience these symptoms, a low dose beta blocker medication is likely to help as well. But you should see your internist about this first.
