HELP Digestive Problems, Waking at 3 am, Lump in lower right Abdomen HELP

Turning to this because I have given up on the pharmaceutical world and don't know where else to turn so here's a brief history of what's going on. Around last October I started having sleep problems. Waking up at 3am and not being able to go back to sleep no matter what I did. Started to develop anxiety for the first time in my life and having brain fog and also trouble with focus/memory. I think this is because the lack of sleep but all doctors tell me it was due to pre-existing anxiety/stress which I do not believe. Before all of this happened i didn't even know what anxiety was and I was living out my dreams through my career, farthest thing from stress. Around the new year, I noticed that my lower right stomach was distended and constantly felt bloated. Also something that NOBODY can answer for me is the fact that when I try to workout during the day, my sleep is always horrible that night. Usually can only get an hour or 2 of sleep when I decide to workout. Due to this I have decided to stop working out until my sleep has improved. I have been dealing with this for more than a year now. Even though my sleep has improved slightly, I have not gotten more than 6 hours of consistent sleep in more than a year. Can't sleep during the day either no matter what and i always feel like there is a tennis ball in my lower right abdomen. I've seen over 15 doctors who weren't able to find anything physically wrong. After giving up I finally gave in to the doctors suggestions and we started the trial and error game of ssri's/ anti-depressants of which every one I had a bad reaction to and did not help any of my symptoms. I have tried every otc supplement you can imagine (seriously I have more supps in my apartment than a GNC). Tried colonics, meditation, seen various hollistic doctors, not a single person has been able to help me. This sudden turn of events has quite literally crippled me and is ruining my life.

A little bit about me before the unfortunate turn of events. I am a very successful Dancer who has traveled the world many times on various tours and been working consistently in this industry since I was in High School. I was at the top in my field before this happened. I am the most disciplined person you will ever meet. I was an extreme work-a-holic. In my opinion, this is all happening because I over worked my body. I kept to a very strict diet and followed an Intermittent Fasting protocol to stay very lean and fit. I used to go until around 4pm without eating a single calorie, then get my workout in, then get all of my calories in after that before I went to bed. I LOVED IT. I loved that lifestyle and actually enjoyed following that protocol as crazy as that sounds. But I never gave myself rest. Literally not a single rest day for weeks on end. I have tried several different meal strategies like cutting out all types of carbs except for vegetables. I went vegetarian for a while, tried paleo, nothing has helped.

So honestly i'm at a place where i'm stuck and am forced to accept this as my new reality. Would really appreciate any sort of feedback. Thank you for your time if you've read all of this it means more than you know

1. Age,sex,weight,country,occupation.
25,M,178, Dancer

2. Main complaints and other associated troubles.

a)Where is the trouble; The exact locality of the complaint like hands,legs etc; duration of trouble.
Distended lower right abdomen. Sleeping issues as in waking up without being able to go back to sleep. Used to be a lot worse as i would always wake up at 3am and would not fall back asleep. has gotten better and now i can get around 4-5 hours of consistent sleep but still have not had a full nights sleep in over 1 year. Falling asleep is never the problem but usually wake after 2 to 4 hours of sleep.

b)What exactly do you feel, Sensation as pain, how pain feels or burn etc.
constant bloating like im carrying around a tennis ball in my lower abdomen, slow digestion. gnawing almost hunger type pains upon waking in upper abdomen solar plexus area. Anxiety trouble focusing

c)What are the factors that causes this trouble according to you.
improper sleep causing digestive problems or digestive problems causing sleep issues. Either one of those is causing my mental symptoms (anxiety,trouble concentrating) Also i feel this is result of overworking my body physically. Used to work out way too much with 0 rest days and follow very low calorie diet with an extreme intermittent fasting lifestyle. Would go until around 4 pm before first meal and would also get my workout in during that time. Also did very bad things like extremely low fat diet, cutting out salt, only drinking certain types of water.

d)Condition under which the complaint is reduced or you feel better like,cold or hot application,cold or hot weather,position as standing,walking,rest etc.
working out always makes my sleep worse, and i mean always. So if i dont do anything physical for a couple days my sleep improves, along with my digestion and mood/energy.

e)Condition under which the complaint is increased like,cold or hot application,cold or hot weather,position as standing,walking,rest etc.
physical exercise hinders sleep. Sometimes heavy heart beating when laying down or laying on left side

f)Any other complaint any where in the body.
circulation problems. sometimes when laying down i can feel my heartbeat in the middle of back almost where my kidneys are.

g)Onset time of troubles in detail, i.e which came first, after that what problem and so on.
October of last year. Sleeping issues, waking at 3am and not going back to sleep. Anxiety/Brain fog and digestion problems. 2 months later is when i noticed the swelling in my lower right abdomen

h)Treatment method adopted and its result.
*ibuprofen seems to help a ton my problems, Helps my sleep, digestion, anxiety. Doesnt fix it just helps it
various otc supplements. I have trial and error all of these supplements and this is the mix that overall helps me the most. Vit C, D, B Complex, Magnesium Citrate, Taurine, Milk Thistle, Turmeric, CoQ10, Fish Oil, Digestive Bitters, Bromelain. Ive tried about every otc supplement you can imagine.

Hollistic Doctor has me on a combination of Silcea, Trichamonas, and Vervain (Bach Flower) plus I take a ton of probiotics. This combination helps me fall back asleep upon waking most of the time but usually takes atleast an hour or two

3. History of diseases in family.
none that i can think of

4. Personal History.
a)About childhood.
Good childhood, I enjoyed growing up had great parents that supported me in everything i did.

b)Academic performance.
Straight A's and B's throughout school and attended some college before beginning my career

parents got divorced but i dont think that that affected me much honestly. never really had a father figure even though he was around. I dont think that it affected me all that much but hey it might help..

d)How you are satisfied with your sex life, friends, family members, company etc.
slow, not enough friends due to always focusing on work, family is good.

5. Habits/Addiction.
a)Smoking, Alcohol,Sleeping pills, Laxative etc.
sometimes when i drink but thats it, only when i got out which is very rare, Ive tried every over the counter sleeping pill you can imagine. currently take melatonin sometimes and thats it. Falling asleep is never the problem

b)Masturbation and frequency.
I used to be addicted to porn. But i would go on streaks where i would give it up for months on end and not masturbate. When all this happened was during one of those streaks. Now I fluctuate off and on with doing it. Most of the time I dont masturbate or watch porn but since life has brought me to my knees i slip sometimes
