I have generalized anxiety disorder and the last year I haven't been sleeping well. 3-5 hours tops per night.
A few weeks ago I got a Migraine which triggered severe Insomnia, eyelid twitching and some visual issues that ended up being dry eyes, but I rushed to get my eyes checked and the optometrist said my eyes are perfectly healthy and the twitch is fatigue.
However I then developed a "flickering" in my vision kind of like a steady strobe light, which then turned into "vibrating" or "shaking" mostly in my peripheral vision. Especially notice vertical lines like doorways and hallways look like they're moving left to right rapidly. I then developed internal tremors, like I'm shaking from the inside but not visible to others. I saw my GP and she said it's all sleep deprivation, and anxiety and she doesn't think its Neurological, gave me some vitamins/relaxation exercises.
I managed to get a bit of sleep and the eyelid twitch went away, the shaky vision got better but not resolved, and the tremors almost stopped for a few days. But my eyes were still flickering and shaking although doing better. Then I started noticing flickers and flashes and sometimes objects "twitch" which triggered my anxiety all over again, can't sleep, tremors are back.
Has anyone experienced these issues with anxiety? They've been constant, the shaky vision hasn't stopped for 4 weeks I'm terrified its Nurological.
