Pleased to hear you'll be seeing a psychiatrist, and have begun to be helped by your GP. I don't recall hearing of Dr Kolb, but as there are these days so few meetings at which we get to meet and hear each other, its hard to know anything useful about others in this field.
Anxiety is brilliant at exaggerating / amplifying any symptom arising from any cause. Your psychiatrist can advise better on this having assessed you, but your GP could also check you physically as to what might be causing these other troubling symptoms. Quite a few drugs can cause a dry throat with reduced saliva, and thuis a range of related symptoms.
