Anxiety or something more?

A little over a year ago I started experiencing what I thought were migraine headaches, wooziness, and shortness of breath. I went to see my doctor and he gave me a diagnosis of anxiety. Not long after these symptoms started, I lost my job, and the symptoms worsened. A few months later, I seemed to get better, but now it seems as though the symptoms are coming back. I'm now at a new stress-free job where all I do (literally) is stand. But it seems like I can't get through a day without feeling like I'm going to go crazy. My nerves are all messed up and sometimes I feel like my balance is off. Sometimes I can be doing absolutely nothing when it will seem like the room shifts and my eyes will do involuntarily movements. It can be very scary at times and I'll try to get myself together and think about something else which has always worked. Today my ears feel full, I feel like I can't get enough air in when I breathe and it feels like there's a heavy weight on my chest. I'm always constantly thinking about what if I get dizzy. It's nerve wrecking and physically draining. Last night, I slept for about 10 hours, but wokee up this morning and felt like I hadn't slept at all. I know this isn't normal. But it's anyone else experiencing any of my same symptoms?
