Thanks for posting your query.
Clonotril contains clonazepam which is used to relieve anxiety. It does not treat vertigo or balancing problems. If your chest pain gets relieved after taking it, this suggests that the pain is due to stress and anxiety. Since all your tests are normal, this further is suggestive of your symptoms caused by stress.
For balancing problems, you need to rule out the following causes with the help of your physician-
1. Cervical spondylosis - giving rise to cervical vertigo
2. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) - inner ear problem
3. Neurological - arising from brain
4. Cardiac cause - improper heart rhythm
5. Gastritis – acid reflux from the stomach can cause dizziness with vomiting, this happens occasionally
Treatment will depend on the cause. You also need to get yourself evaluated for anxiety and ask your physician to prescribe you an effective anti anxiety drug according to your need. This will help with your indigestion and diarrhea too.
I hope this answers your query effectively.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Thanks for writing again.
For balancing problems you need to consult an ENT specialist and an Orthopedician.
To overcome stress and anxiety, you need to consult a psychiatrist or a psychotherapist.
Hope my answer is helpful.
