Why do I always feel stressed, tense, impatient, tired, but

Patient

Q: Why do I always feel stressed, tense, impatient, tired, but then I can't fall asleep and when I do I can sleep for a good 12 hours nightly, my heart races, and I'm always feeling scared inside and very stressed even though I have nothing really to stress about. I get very nervous around people, sweat really bad and my heart races. I feel like I can't go around anyone I'm not close to. I feel like this 24/7 and I've felt like this for as long as I can remember as a child even had a hard time going to school because of it.
