Seek further consult: You indicate several symptoms characteristic of anxiety. However, you also indicate several symptoms generally unrelated Anxiety/stress can show itself through a variety of seemingly unrelated physical problems, however. Having already been examined by your dr. I recommend getting evaluated/treated for anxiety by a psych dr. and then addressing any unchanged symptoms w/ your regular dr.
