Anxiety/Neurological Symptoms

This is my first post and will be rather long. I'm 36 and have always had anxiety, but I've also always been able to manage it and have not been on meds. On April 6th of this year, I had my first panic attack. I had several after that over the course of about 5 to 6 weeks, until my GP figured out I had severe anemia. I started iron, and started feeling better little by little. Even though I've continued my iron steadily, and my numbers are coming up, I've relapsed. I have a TON of neurological symptoms including tingling and numbness in my extremities and head, bad nervousness, strange dreams and some audible hallucinations when drifting off to sleep, etc. The panic attacks have gotten fewer but my other symptoms have worsened. I took FMLA for a month and am due back at work in a week. I'm having issues sleeping through the night and have horrible anxiety about returning to work. I've read about anxiety causing all sorts of physical symptoms that mimic other issues. I'm praying someone has some insight on how I'm going to start back on a normal routine with all of these symptoms I'm having. I feel depressed and anxious constantly, and don't know what to do. Might I add that I am not open to meds. I've tried them several times and my body hates them, even on the lowest doses. Help!

What kinds of things were the audible hallucinations saying?

I don't even know. It's more like loud sounds or maybe people talking.
