Also to investigate any autoimmune disease and anxiety condition.

Follow the guidelines which I have given you and you may find these helpful. Yes as I mentioned this can be anxiety related symptoms you need to have treatment for anxiety.
Yes anxiety can cause all such symptoms. I will suggest to ask your physician to prescribe you anti-anxiety medication and also refer you to psychologist for cognitive behavior therapy for anxiety that would be helpful too.
