First visit your: doc to rule out medical conditions. Then please see a mental health professional like a clinical psychologist. The conditions you mention are often anxiety related. Peace and good health.

Therapy?: Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as anxiety or depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.
