Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity as tolerated. Drink more water. Wish you good health!

Anxiety: At 23yo, especially if no significant ore existing illness was present, your symptoms sound a lot like anxiety induced physical symptoms. Please see your doctor for an exam to verify a lack of organ pathology, and consider exploring (via therapy) why you are anxious, and if there is a significance to these organ symptoms.
