Help! My symptoms happen in this exact order and my family

Customer Question

Help! My symptoms happen in this exact order and my family doctor seems lost. I start out with numbness in my face that causes my left eye to twitch, numb finger tips, heart palpitations, then an adrenaline push where I feel sick, followed by severe diarrhea within 24 hours that completely empties out my bowels. Starts with normal stool, ends with water. The numbness goes away and so does the palpitations after the diarrhea . Ekg during palpitations suggested upper heart rather than lower so I was sent for a 48 hour holter monitor. What on earth can be causing this?

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.
This sounds like a panic attack/anxiety to me.
Is that possible?

It could be, life is very stressful because of my job and my husband having cancer.
