Light shed where possible, even when my batteries are a bit flat. Sounds like the anxiety is becoming more of a problem at some times. Especially as you say you don't like using meds where possible ( and I prefer trying to manage anxiety without meds ) you should look inot CBT, Cognitive-behaviour Therapy, an effective method of talking therap which doesn't take very long, and helps you learn to control such anxiety by your own efforts.
The unpleasant feelings you describe are probably a part of the anxiety, though I suppose there are a couple of other possibilities. As you'd see a psychologist for CBT, that psychologist should of course do a proper assessment carefully, to confirm that this is anxiety and to check whether anything else needs attention
