I'm a female and 20 years old. I have terrible health anxiety.
This all started last week when I was driving home from work in the dark. All the oncoming cars head lights were very bright and caused a starburst effect (something which I haven't noticed before) when I got home I noticed my street light had a rainbow halo around it? With this I became more anxious and was looking at all lights in and around my house to see if these had a rainbow halo (which they did).
As anyone with health anxiety we google are symptoms... and up came Gaulcoma!
I went to my opticians on Sunday and she did a full eye exam... I told her about my symptoms and she didn't seem worried.
She said my eyes were a little dry, I'm short sighted (first prescription needed) and I have an astigmatism but apart from that my eyes are very healthy.
Since then my eyes are sore and have a full ache which comes and goes.
What could be causing this?
