Exam needed: Your symptoms can be seen in overactive thyroid or elevated blood pressure, certain cardiac disorders or chronic anxiety states. I recommend that you get evaluated by a physician who will take a history, perform a physical examination and order any appropriate tests needed to make a diagnosis.
