We understand your concerns

I went through your details. I suggest you not to worry much. Please understand, for any person who is unhealthy and have medicines, such anxiety and depression is part of life. This anxiety and depression affects people who are idle. Remember, idle mind is devil's workshop. Do understand, Stress and anxiety are known to produce weird symptoms which has no physiological reason. The symptoms could be pain, fullness, tingling, crawling, feeling of weight etc. Those symptoms tend to be just obsession. If you obsess with those symptoms, the always will be there.

Along with medicine you should practice psychotherapy techniques to streamline your life style and meditation and yoga techniques to calm your mind, body, streamline your metabolism and thinking style. Please consult a psychologist.
