I've been reading through this forum (and a few others,) and have noticed that these seem to be a big cause for alarm and even triggering anxiety in those who otherwise do not suffer from being anxious.
I do suffer terribly from anxiety and my question is: can anxiety cause/make floaters worse?
I had an eye test a few months ago and was given the all clear (they tested everything,) so should I continue to worry that they are something awful, like a brain tumour? Or should I take comfort from my eye test.
I rang my opticians who said these are normal, she also checked my notes from my last visit and said that nothing was mentioned at any point through my test. She did say that I could go back to put my mind at ease.
I have been having awful trouble for nine months now with balance and dizzy/woozy issues which now seems to be effecting my vision.
I caught a virus in Feb which kicked this all off... I have been back in to much with my dr again (I have been back countless times,) and again I was told that nothing I said raised any alarm bells and that the issue (because I have crackling sensations and a feeling of water in my ear,) is with my ear...
I feel at my wits end anxiety wise. I'm convinced I have a tumour and I seem completely unable to stop my fear. My body feels riddled with fear and it's like I no longer 'trust' myself. Everything I experience I attribute to one factor, which doesn't allow for me to reason with myself like I used to.
I have started counciling and also have another GP appointment booked.
Could I really have something that EVERYONE is missing? It seems unlikely...but you read such horror stories on Google
