There are several instances which shows the same symptoms as you.
So you are not alone.
Anxiety develops with an underlying cause.
Think and take your time, what happened just within a month before the symptoms started.
There has to be a cause, and once found, your problem solved.
Consult a psychologist soon, don't delay.
Wishing a good future

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I hope that you will be able to address these concerns by visiting with a psychiatrist as I believe that you have more to your story than just the few lines above. Also you might need extensive testing, including blood work as well as imaging studies. I hope you also have a regular doctor who you consult for medical issues. Anxiety and Insomnia are easily treatable, however you need to see a psychiatrist as soon as you can. Appropriate referral to a psychologist, who can help with psycho-education and counseling may also be necessary. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!

Psychiatrist Dr. Ashish Mittal's  Response
welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Your symptoms are related to anxiety. Most common reason of anxiety is deficient serotonin neurotransmission in brain.

Anxiety disorders can manifest with not only psychological symptoms but with a variety of physical symptoms also like: Tingling, numbness, palpitation, fatigue, headache, choking sensation, tremors (shakiness) etc.

For long term control of anxiety following measures are helpful: relaxation exercise, medicines like SSRIs and non drug treatment like CBT. It is better to get evaluated by psychiatrist and start treatment accordingly. Same time does some relaxation exercise like daily brisk walk, yoga and breathing exercise, which will help you in fast recovery.

Wish you all the best.
