Why does it seem like I always have some type of health problem?

This may sound weird or stupid but I feel as if I am always having some sort of health issue, or a scare of a potential health issue.

Could this be caused my stress or something else in particular? Could it be a weak immune system or simply psychological?

Perhaps anxiety and hypo/cyberchondria.
Stress (anxiety) can cause immune system deficits, so essentially stressing about health could make you more susceptible to illness, and hence potentially strengthen that belief.
Proper diet, sleep and exercise should be adhered to.
Stress is usually accompanied by high cortisol levels. Cortisol acts as a immunosuppressant.
So aside from general healthcare, you could look into health supplements. Resveratrol is a popular one, but there are many good supplements out there proven to be quite good for your health.. Sadly also many unproven, and hence it requires some time consuming research to find a proper "stack" or regimen. Ashwagandha is something worth looking into, as it is proven to lower cortisol levels. Just make sure you research from a proper site, not some crappy site like LiveStrong. See link in references for further info on Ashwagandha. There are many supplements for anxiety and stress that are safe and effective, you can send me a message if you'd like a more elaborate push in the right direction.
Definitely consider some relaxing therapies, meditation or whatever works for you to de-stress.

So to answer your questions: Yes, Yes, and Yes, and they are all interrelated. Improve one component of the circle, and the rest will follow/be easier to improve. Just be determined to overcome it, and you will. Good luck!

EDIT: Generally it is advised to consider anti-depressants as a last resort. SSRI's can be nasty little creatures. There are a few pharmaceuticals that can treat depression/anxiety with little to no side effects, and are generally safe. Yet these are uncommonly prescribed and usually require specific research to bring them to your attention. If you must, then consider Tianeptine, which has a preferable profile. If you love yourself, you'll stay the hell away from benzodiazepines. And while spiritual practices can definitely be beneficial to people.. Well I'm not going to throw in my personal opinion on Christianity, but there are many other spiritual practices you can consider which are less dogmatic. And there's no way to know whether you're having a serotonin imbalance without doing a neurophysiological exam or bloodwork. Moreover, serotonin is not the only neurotransmitter in the brain. It could well be dopaminergic, cholinergic, adrenergic, glutamergic… You get the picture. Simply concluding an "imbalance" is quite outdated actually, and neurology is way more sophisticated than that. Think intracortical coupling, hyper/hypoexcitability of neurons or regions, epigenetics. If you like, you can ask for a neurophysiologic exam, which could clear things up. A complete bloodpanel and an EEG (electroencephalogram) are generally a good start. Treating deficiencies is the first step, if you have any. Also, it is really advised to exhaust all possible options before taking anti-depressants or other pharmaceutical agents of which their safety and efficacy are in the grey. Transcranial stimulations precede pharmaceutical agents in regards to what's preferable. Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation has recently shown to be quite the novel and safe approach to various cognitive and neurological quirks and disorders, and some people can benefit enormously from that. One can't emphasis enough how important it is to research and exhaust all preferential possibilities, instead of simply taking some random medication (mirtazapine by example) from the doctor without even researching it.

How much time does Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera) take to show its results? Especially sexual results!!?

Ashwagandha Benefits

Unfortunately, the answer depends entirely on your body but most people notice the benefits within anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Supplements give your body nutrition it's otherwise lacking, so as soon as your body is able to utilize that nutrition enough to give you the desired effect, you'll feel it.
I see it kind of like giving someone water to drink. If they are severely dehydrated, it could take days of drinking water a bit at a time to get back to "healthy"… But if someone is normally hydrated, they'll feel better within the first couple cups of water.

Ashwagandha (sometimes called Indian Ginseng) is an herb that helps with the negative effects that stress has on the body and helps with the immune system, so if you've been under a lot of stress, it may take longer than others. However, with that being said, I haven't really heard of it helping for sexual health unless your sex life is being impeded by stress… If you aren't under stress, it wouldn't really help your sex life at all. I'm wondering if you're thinking about Siberian or American Ginseng… Those also help with physical energy, which could be used for exercise or intimacy. Good luck and I hope I helped!
