U need. counseling : See a psychiatrist soon, given that all the tests you ran ruled out organic cause for your troubling symptoms. If you don't have a direct access to a psychiatrist, consult your primary doctor, good luck

Anxiety: If your doctor has advised you that your medical workup is normal, consider that anxiety might be causing these symptoms. If that is the case, consider working with a psychotherapist. Take care.
