Hello again.
OK
First you do need a physical work up.
There are medical conditions that can cause these symptoms, such as hyperthyrodism, and pheochromacytoma.

If it comes from anxiety, you have to treat the anxiety.

If it is an anxiety disorder, cognitive behavioral therapy and/or an SSRI medication such as zoloft or celexa are indicated strategies.

I want to emphasize that you need a diagnosis for treatment and ruling out physical causes is important.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.

Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
