Numb feeling

Hii Everybody,
I feel a little worried, because I have a numb mouth for about 3 months now, when i am eating or drinking it does not feel like it, and i am very worried about it.
But I told my parents about it and they told me that it was nothing to worry about, but its now 3 months and it didn't got any better.
But I went to the doctor in December and Januari for other symptoms, because i was having panic attacks and anxiety, and I had (still have) pain on the chest, like a muscle pain on the chest area.
because I was worried that I was having a heart attack, it was not the case. So I went to the doctor and they made a scan of my heart and blood pressure and they took blood, and it was all good.
So went to a physio for a wrong breathing technic, but I been once and they told me there was nothing wrong.
So I went back because it wasn't going any better, now the send me to a psychologist for the stress I was experiencing, but after 1 time they also told there was nothing wrong.
And now I have still pain in the chest, and now a numb feeling in my mouth an throat, also sometimes all over my body it feels so weird!
and i don't know anymore what to do, and i'm really scared that when i go to the doctor that i have cancer or something (mouth cancer).
But i am a girl, 20 years old, and I do smoke.
So I hope I can get some advice here.
I'm really sorry about the bad story, english is not my native languages

Probably not cancer because it would take time to develop, but it could be that your mouth feels numb as an offshoot of the smoking. Do you think you could quit if you try?
Yes I could try, I think when I really want it, i can make it work ! (:
It would be great to quit for all kinds of reasons. I have a friend who literally stinks, and not like fresh smoke but a really sour smell on his clothes, body and in his house. All from smoking. Also, you'll prevent premature skin wrinkles, discolored teeth, bad breath, and of course risk of all the health problems (cancer not being the only one). Do your best, I bet you can do it if you put your mind to it. : )
