In brief: This states that

you have hypochondria and you indicate that you are stressed.
Rather then focusing on your symptoms - would encourage you to address your stress. Talking therapy ranks really high. Cognitive Behavioral therapy or psychotherapy can be effective. Aim for daily exercise, 8 hours of sleep per night & good nutrition w 5 servings of veggies & 4 of fruit per day. Try tai chi, yoga, Qi Gong, progressive >
