Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Hi, I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.

I have evaluated your wife's report thoroughly and could just find one abnormality that is high cholesterol levels, and that too doesn't require medicines. Just low fat diet and exercise is enough.

Her symptoms are classically suggestive of anxiety neurosis only and she needs treatment for that only.
Her slightly high pulse rate can be explained by anxiety itself.

The best treatment for this would be to practice Yoga and Meditation and this requires patience to work.

For short duration, if her symptoms are severe, you can discuss with your doctor to put her on SSRI group of drugs like Escitalopram along with anti anxiety drug like Etizolam for short duration. Second drug that can be added is Propanolol. This helps in controlling anxiety and also reduces the pulse rate.

This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any other query, you may please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
