Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

Your above symptoms indicate presence of anxiety. These problem may occur due to following reasons:
-Psychological issues: need treatment from psychiatrist. Anti anxiety treatment will help you greatly. When symptoms are more and CBT is not effective alone then it is better to start concurrent medical treatment.
-Biochemical and hormonal imbalance: need evaluation specially for thyroid gland.
-Vitamin deficiency

Till you take specialist consultation aerobic exercise, breathing exercise, healthy diet and yoga will help you. It is better to take consultation early as untreated case may lead to depression and poor academic performance.

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