You need to see a doctor.: Undoubtedly, you have experienced a lot of stress in the recent past and presently have a child to care for, which does not help. Not withstanding the possibility of a PTSD / anxiety related disorder, my recommendation is that you see any physician in your vicinity.

You need a physical exam and some bloodwork done. Based on your evaluation and the test results, that physician will direct you to the necessary specialist if it is indeed warranted. ...Read more
