Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your question...

It appears that you are suffering from a Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). There are several options available and medication is just one of them. If you have been advised not to take medication, then you can benefit from psychotherapy. There are effective psychological therapies like cognitive behaviour therapy, relaxation therapy, biofeedback, etc. which can help you with the anxiety symptoms. Please consult a psychiatrist for further details and guidance.

Wish you all the best.
