health anxiety symptom?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have been suffering with helth anxiety for a while and have been having loads of different body sensations and pains etc but recently I feel like I've been seeing things like flashes and spots appear randomly when I'm looking at things, does anyone else get this? I'm terrified it's something more than anxiety

    Yes. I've had them for years. I don't think I suffer from anxiety though. . The doctors and opticians say it's nothing though.

    I've had them to and floaters all normal, but if its like fireworks going off in your eye(s) or looks like its raining with the floaters, then you need to get it looked at immediately, anxiety manifests in many ways though, so its not always easy to determine what is physical and what we think is real when real its psychological.☺

      That's probably just floaters, but otherwise it would be constant, and I found out after doing some research a yeast infection can cause floaters, which at the time I had, and a lot of other symptoms, I treated it and they went, still have the normal ones and a black 1 though .
