tHANKS IN ANTICIPATION
It is certainly possible for anxiety to cause all of the symptoms you describe. If this were neurological, your neuro would have been able to diagnose it by now.
A vicious cycle takes place once anxiety manifests itself in a bodily reaction. You become more self conscious, and end up watching yourself too closely. Your attention shifts toward your body, and you become mentally disconnected from it. Your body becomes like a foreign object and seems to continue to surprise and frighten you.
The more frightened you are, the more self conscious, the more frightened, and the cycle continues and your symptoms get worse. Interrupting this cycle with anti-anxiety medication and psychotherapy is the best remedy.
