    Hello There - sounds to me like anxiety is causing your anxiety? You might want to get a full physical with a complete blood work up. Confusion is another issue in it of itself that could be caused by many, many factors. You might also want to be checked for Fibromyalgia.

    Are you currently taking any meds that would also create those side effects. There are plenty of meds that could cause confusion along with everything you are describing here.

    Wishing you the best,

    Glenn

    bloodwork is typically done as part of a physical. At least here in the U.S. Not sure where you are, or how old you are but you should get a complete physical. They can determine also if your problems are neurological. I would imagine based on what you're indicating, they will order a number of tests.

    Does your GP have any advice to offer?

    Talk to a heart doctor to see if this can be heart related. You can never be to careful with your heart. Also get an iron and potassium blood test. That can make you tired and groggy. When my iron was very low I could hardly function. Hope you get better.
