I think if you don't worry or stress much, then anxiety is probably not contributing to your problems (my guess).

I think you should definitely look into your diet. Your body could be sending you these messages if you are not getting the vitamins and nutrients you need.

If I were you I would start by googling "signs of vitamin deficiency" and let the info lead the rest of your researching.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.It appears anxiety. Low doses of tricyclic antidepressants and lorazepam worke very well. You should have some physiotherapy sessions and see how it goes.

Take care
