Our expert says:
Sounds like a mix of stress and anxiety disorders, including panic attacks and obsessive-compulsive features. I am sure you can be helped, and could be feeling a great deal better before long. But effective treatment must start with a proper diagnosis, so you should arrange to see a good local psychiatrist for a thorough in-person assessment ( the experience is likely to be much more aggreeable than you might expect ) and then a discussion of the diagnosis made, and of treatment options. A range of medications could help a good deal, as could CBT therapy ( a talking therapy that is very effective ).
