Understandably anxiety may escalate with unexplained symptoms. Your work up should continue with stool studies and possibly imaging studies guided by physical exam and with the help of a gastroenterologist. Focus should be on things at hand until clear answers available and in order to keep the anxiety under control.

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!
