Internalized Anxiety

There must be something wrong with me. I honestly never FEEL as if I'm very stressed out. I don't actually stress or worry much as far as I can tell, but I have to be internalizing some major anxiety. I know this, because I have several health issues related to anxiety. I have panic attacks out of the blue, I began grinding the crap out of my teeth these past couple years, I have intestinal issues (IBS) thought to be caused by stress, and I have this weird obssesion with picking at my legs (thought to be a form of OCD) which for some reason is very stress relieving for me. Yet still, I don't feel like I'm that anxious of a person. I have a couple things that bother me deeply, certainly, but it's not like I sit around and worry all day every day. I don't get it. I went to the doctor to ask for anti-anxiety medicine in light of all my problems related to stress. She just said, "Well, we all have to deal with something" and refused to give me medicine. I can understand a doctor's reluctance to give an (at the time) 17-year-old meds, but she could have at least been nicer and given me other options to look into...
