Anxiety. Preoccupation with health issues is a socially accepted way to hide anxiety over other forces you do not understand. If you are not already you need to find a life coach that can teach you how to deal with the stressors in your life. Do the work and life will get easier & more enjoyable.

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!
