I know exactly where you are coming from, and have had the same feelings of which you speak on and off since about 2008.
I was prescribed one of the usual big pharma products (Valium), which I don't like to take as is leaves me feeling like a zombie.
I have found, and I don't know if this is a product that is available in the U.S. that 'Rescue Remedy' works extremely well to help cope with the symptoms of anxiety. I take it daily.
It contains the following:
Rock Rose – for terror and panic
Impatiens – for irritability and impatience
Clematis – for inattentiveness
Star of Bethlehem – for shock
Cherry Plum – to promote calmness and mental clarity
I gave some to a friend of mine the other day that was having similar feelings and within about 25 minutes I could see a physical change in his demeanour.
He said and I quote " It's not so much what you notice after taking it, it's what you don't notice".

I too have experienced very mild depression along with these symptoms. Feeling kind of flat, mostly. Uninterested in drawing, which was one of my defining hobbies. I can barely concentrate enough to get a picture out of the "roughing" stage, and it's remarkably uncreative anyway.
My daily life is spent distracting myself with the internet, gourmet coffee and video games. I feel so stagnated.
