What sort of disorder/illness do I have? (Headaches, nausea, dizziness...)

    Recently I've been feeling incredibly tired constantly. I get plenty of sleep (8+ hours a night) and I'm not taking any medication or anything. I've also been having a lot of panic attacks (I've been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder but I've been having more than usual). When i am anxious or having an anxiety attack my head while start jerking towards my shoulder with out me trying to. If I am walking around too much or haven't sat down and take rest in a while I feel dizzy and like I'm going to pass out. I've been getting really bad headaches. I've also been showing a lot of symptoms of mental illnesses such as psychosis or schizophrenia like aggressive behaviour and lack of self control. I don't know if my symptoms are of multiple disorders or just one but I can't seem to find anything that matches all of them.

Only someone like the person who diagnosed you with the GAD can do a diagnosis, so if you feel there is more than that, then either see them again to discuss it or get a second opinion.
You won't be able to self-diagnose schizophrenia or psychosis and thinking you have one of them might lead you down the wrong path if you try to deal with whatever bothers you. So it is best to leave diagnosis  to a professional who could work with you on anything that they think needs your attention.
