Anxiety and Stress Question

User Profile
I can't figure this out... I get stressed about everything. I can't sing in front of my friends, I am to nervous to walk up to people i don't know, I stress about how much money my friends, and parents have spent on me. I stress about almost everything you can think about. I jumped at the slightest noise and I hear every noise. When I get stressed about something that is something most people would think you would be stressed out of scared about, I start sweating and freaking out. My heart starts beating very fast, and I start pacing at night, and my who!e body starts shaking. I have been told I am just shy or just crazy but I think it is more than that. I can't sleep because of this... And I .mostly stress about how much MONEY PEOPLE HAVE SPENT... I need help can you help me?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Your symptoms are consistent with anxiety disorder but hyperthyroidism should be ruled out. If thyroid function tests were normal then consult psychiatrist.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
