Diagnosis and treatment options please

Patient : I am a 17, almost 18 year old girl with chronic joint pain and swelling (mainly in my left hip, may be caused by psoriatic arthritis), itchy dry skin on my elbows (severity depends on time of year and allergens), frequent panic attacks, my hair has started to fall out at an alarming rate for the last couple of weeks, and for some reason I seem to need about nine hours of sleep almost every night or I get sick with something. Are these symptoms connected and is there anything I can do about them?
Symptoms:  Joint pain and swelling, hair falling out, panic attacks, and high sleep requirements.
