Be cool, S. There's no reason to be scared of seeing a specialist, who could only help you. One needs to be cautious in interpreting the results of online questionnaires. An Acute Stress Disorder is a very specific condition which only occurs early on, following exposure to a very major, life-threaening stress experience --- so if you haven't recently been through an earthquake, hijacking, or war, you do not have an Acute Stress Reaction. Good.
There are very many different possible causes of insomnia, and fatigue, including anxiety disorder and depression. Skin reactions usually have other auses than nervousness, but can be related. But though te questionnaire isn't a useful guide, your description of your symptoms sounds as though depression and/or anxiety disorder is possible. The ONLY way to be sure is to see at least a really good GP, best to see a specialist Psychiatrist, for a thorough assessment and diagnosis, and a discussion of treament choices. Medication could be really useful, and almost certain to be helpful would be a special form of pychotherapy / counselling called CBT, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy.
There's nothing a specialis could do that would be worth fearing --- they can only talk assess, and advise.
