From what you have told here, the picture looks like that of mixed anxiety - depression. All tests will be normal in this condition. You will have to consult a Psychiatrist and start some form of medicine and later may be even therapy.

Hello mam I can imagine it must be quite difficult for you. Anxiety, excessive concern about health, thoughts of death and dying, feeling overwhelmed and on the edge, can all occur in various mental health conditions like anxiety disorder and depression. Please see a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and further management. Treatment usually consists of medications as well as psychological therapy. You will also benefit from regular exercise and meditation. Many people who are in similar situation are able to come out of it with proper treatment and support. Please seek professional help. Thanks Regards Dr Ankita Mishra MRCPsych(UK), MD,DPM (Psychiatry)

These could be signs of an anxiety disorder with depression n the fainting episodes you describe are suggestive of panic attacks, considering that all your blood investigations are normal For your information, panic attacks howsoever threatening they may seem are usually benign and there are bleak chances of death due to panic attack..
Next Steps
a detailed evaluation will still be needed to make a diagnosis...Good medicines are available for the treatment of this condition...u must consult a Psychiatrist at the earliest..
