Hi Sofia,
Thanks for writing in.
Your symptoms are consistent with with an anxiety disorder. The treatment for this condition would be drugs like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors like escitalopram. In addition, you would need psychotherapy, which is the main treatment. The type of anxiety disorder you have can be decided only after a detailed history is taken.
Hope this helps

From your description it seems to be a stress relkatred anxiety disorder. You need to do some relaxation exercises or consult a psychotherapist who can prescribe you a m,ild anti anxiety drug with low day time sedation.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
