I am a 40 year old male. I weigh 170 lbs and am in the best shape of my life. I had a physical several weeks ago and was given a clean bill of health. I have a great life, great family and we are financially secure.

I feel miserable about half the time. I have good days and bad days. I have these horrible feelings that hit me in waves. I wake up feeling anxiety at 5 in the morning and I go for a 5 mile run. About mile 4 I feel much better. But then I may have a horrible day the next day. I have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep and I wake in the night. I usually have night sweats. I sometimes feel dizzy and weak in the right knee. I don't smoke, I rarely drink and I have stopped drinking coffee. I usually only drink water and lots of it.

I have told all of this to my Doctor, and he thinks it might be stress. There are no other indicators that he can see. I don't know what to do. I need help.
