Anxiety / stress can indeed have such impact. Apart from any relation to actual physical illness, anxiety amplifies any symptoms of any other disorder, too. The shaky hands, fast heart beat, queasy feeling, sweatiness, etc are typical. See someone and get the treatment you deserve --- some medication and CBT and you could regain control of the situation and the symptoms
