Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

Your above symptoms indicate presence of anxiety and depression. These problem may occur due to following reasons:
-Psychological issues: need treatment from psychiatrist. Anti anxiety treatment will help you greatly.
-Biochemical and hormonal imbalance: need evaluation specially for thyroid gland.
-Vitamin deficiency: as you have unusual inner sensations
-Excessive work stress

In my opinion you should continue treatment with zoloft as advised by your physician. Some time dose need to increase for improvement.

Apart from that aerobic exercise, effective time management, breathing exercise, healthy diet and yoga will help you.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
