I am male 29 year old. I have for a past 4-5 days yellowish soft stool (little-bit wattery). Also for the last week or so I sweat regardless that is not hot outside. Mostly my feet are sweating which is inconvinient feeling. Before that I did not had that kind of problems. Dometimes throughout day my ears become red and hot but maybe it is not connected. I do not have high body temperature. I am also very sensitive person and I often google my symptoms (I am semi-hypohondric for sure). My doctor says it is nerves and that I must concentrate to not think about myself (my symptoms). I tend to check my blood pressure 10 times in a row if it is a little bit too-high (like I am checking to see if it will be getting lower). It looks like I am hypohondric or have OCD... Is it possible that this symptoms are connected with nerves/anxiety? What can I do to see is it Psychological or Physical? My doctor says to calm down but it is not easy when you have this or any problems. I feel that I do not rule my body. It is like that my body is controling me... I am overweight also (240 lbs - 110kg). I checked my blood in September. Everything normal except I had higher values of triglycerides and doctor told me that I have greasy liver. Thank you
