    I am sure the doctor is right that if you've had these symptoms for a year things would be a lot different.  You still need help.  Are you just on Valium perhaps you need a change of medication.  Anxiety and depression can cause so many physical problems it's unbelievable.  At least the scan should put your mind at ease.  Take care
