Lisa - Welcome to HW.
To address all of your symptoms and concerns; see if you can get an appointment with a qualified Endochronologist. There seem to be enough conflicting symptoms to warrant a thorough examination of all your bodily systems.
My hands, especially fingers, would get numb at the strangest times and I couldn't find any connection to activity - finally diagnosed as carpal tunnel and all it has taken so far is a wrist splint to make a major difference. I wear it at night and when driving long distances ... other times I am fine.
Your GP obviously isn't meeting your needs ... keep looking. You know your body better than anyone, you just need a really good consultant to check it all out and come up with answers and solutions. Let us know what you find out and how you are doing.

Aw, Geez! I understand re insurance, too! Maybe we all should consider leaving the US for Canada or the UK!
I lost insurance coverage when husband became disabled - he got Medicare via his disability and I was left hanging. Finally got a Blue Cross Blue Shield policy that costs an arm and a leg - didn't use much of it for years, but it certainly paid for itself last year with cancer surgery.
