I have for the last year had symptoms of unknown

I have for the last year had symptoms of unknown origin which my previous doctor just kept saying was anxiety although I knew it was not. I get flushing of the skin, followed by chills and clammy skin, painful tingling in hands and feet, a pounding heartbeat which many times keeps me up, restlessness and irritability, insomnia, skin twitches, severe nausea as well as losing 140+ lbs in 6 months despite eating the same. I am now down to 138 lbs at 5'10". I got in to see a new doctor and he listened and did bloodwork and everything aside from a enzyme called ALT and B12 were very low. These symptoms have gotten worse and more frequent and I simply dont know where to go from here since my family thought it was hyperthyroidism. My sister has it but my tests showed up normal. Any advice as to what to do? I am going to see cardio & gastro specialists this week but any advice would be appreciated. It's very uncomfortable and honestly quite scary.

Hello. I am a 55 year old woman. I am recovering from a flu-like virus where I had feverishness, headache and aches all over my body. The worst of this lasted about 5 days and I am slowly recovering. However, I am finding that I am experiencing low mood and an agitated feeling (similar to jangling nerves or butterflies in my stomach) and it is making it difficult for me to fall over to sleep. Is this a common symptom after having the flu? I am coping with this quite well as I control my breathing until the feelings pass but it is wearing me down somewhat. Should I be doing something different?
