Could be: Stress can do unbelievable things and create a problem out of nowhere. If you have been feeling like this for awhile then i would recommend going to see a doctor so that they can help you with your symptoms. In the meantime drink plenty of water and do some activities that will lower your stress, for example: yoga.
