Anxiety still remains in my eye

Posted , 5 users are following.

OK, so I've had an anxiety relapse for 6 months now after beating it 4 years ago.. here is a question for my fellow sufferers of this disease..

I've been seeing way more floaters in my eyes and some flashy lights on and off through out the day.. I've managed to rid myself of other health anxiety such as stroke worries and the likes so I know what's happening in my eyes isn't anything overly serious..

Has anyone else had vision problems with their eyes?

    Absolutely!!! Tunnel vision, blue flashing and star like lights. Sometimes even like little black waves!!!

    Hi, yes I have- floaters appeared about two months in when anxiety moved to focus on worry about sight. Some days are worse than others and as my anxiety has very gradually subsided I see them less and less. It's like my heightened state makes me more aware or more proactive in looking for them. When I don't think about them, I don't see them. They are awful, but I hope over time as anxiety subsides so will my noticing of floaters.

    I get exactly the same. New symptoms are always popping up. Woke up this morning and felt like I could sleep standing up. Had no energy actually felt like I was drunk.
