anxiety

Detailed Answer:
Hello, thanks for posting in healthcaremagic.

The symptoms that you have mentioned does not fit into any diagnosis. There is no single organic disease giving rise to all this symptoms.

I feel you are suffering from excessive anxiety or depression which is getting manifested in so many weird symptoms.

I would suggest you to socialise more. Get involved in pleasure giving activities like sports movies shopping etc. U can take meficines like Tab typlin 20 1 tab at bed time daily. This will help.

Take lots of colourful fruits and vegetables which contains lots of mineral vitamins and antioxidents.

Lastly make friends and be confident of yourself.

Hope this helps.

U can use otrivin nasal drop for some relief. But I feel every problem that you are having is rooted some where witj your stress. You can also personally visit a psychiatrist who can greatly help you to over come stress.

You can visit someone personally and no one has to know.
