Stress management: Your symptoms are consistent with chronic anxiety and tension and if checkups reveal no pathology, I think you would be helped immeasurably by stress management therapy. I recommend that you get a referral from your physician to a psychologist or psychiatrist(can prescribe medications if advisable).

Anxiety: If medical causes have been worked out - this sounds consistent with anxiety. However, I am not sure what your question was.
