Real help: I'm glad you feel comfortable sharing your concern here, but if you'd like to get better you'll need to seek professional help outside the internet. Begin with your primary care doctor and request a referral to a qualified psychotherapist. These symptoms could be from a variety of problems and you obviously are experiencing distress, so you owe it to yourself to get the right help.
