Constant Worrying
Doctor, for the past one year, I have increased worries about my health. If a dog is near me, I need to check my legs for bite marks, a gust of air on my shoulder makes me feel like there was a bat, anything stinging makes me look for rats around me. This has brought my life to an absolute standstill. I fear moving out of my house, not because I fear that some animal might bite me, but because I feel that if it bites me, I'll fail to take the appropriate treatment.

You seem to be having lot of anxiety about the same. Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation

Seems like too much anxiety. Relax by doing Shavasana and going for a walk. Visit a Psychologist for further treatment.

Greetings. Well, it seems like you have developed health related anxiety which is clinically described as Hypochondriasis where in the person tends to get overly concerned and overwhelmed by minor ailments or injuries and begin to equate them with severe and often life threatening consequences. So there is this perpetual anxiety loomng underneath regarding getting sick or injured which is exactly what you have been experiencing.
Next Steps
I suggest that you seek therapy from a psychologist , preferably CBT , which will take care of your problem.
