It sounds to me exactly what I have which is gad. Generalized anxiety disorder. I also had symptoms like yours and was in and out of er and drs offices. Till they finally sent me to a psychiatrist and got the meds I needed to control it. Then I started therapy too. But that's not always the answer. A lot of pol can just work out their issues in therapy without meds. It just depends on the person. I'm not a Dr. So please don't neglect going bc of what I say. But in my opinion its just gad. What I like to call ha. Health anxiety. Cause ur always worrying about your health. Anyway I hope I've helped u a little bit.
