Welcome to HealingWell.
Many of us here with health anxiety have had great success with CBT therapy. It involves retraining the negative/fearful thinking that causes our anxieties, into more positive/rational thinking. It can help relieve much of the worry and symptoms that you mentioned in your post.
Those of us with health anxiety are often overly aware of every body sensation, and go on 'red-alert' whenever we feel something is off. The fact is, our bodies are always doing things that we may feel as weird/strange/new...we just react more than the average person who may experience the same things.
I would recommend talking to your doctor about a possible referral to a therapist who specializes in health anxiety and CBT.
