Hi. I am a 20 year old female. A year ago I started having strange symptoms that spiraled into having awful health anxiety. At one point I heard about eye floaters and was terrified I would get them. Sure enough I started seeing them (which I am terribly depressed/ anxious about). I obsess over my eyes 24/7, and it seems like as time progresses I just have more and more issues. In addition to the floaters, I have worsened visual snow and after images. I can’t look at the snow or sky without seeing all these things moving around. My eyes will often unfocus/blur out as well. I went to the doctor a couple months ago and he said my eyes were fine.
I don't get it. Is this all anxiety? OCD? Hyperawareness? It has greatly affected the quality of my life. This has been going on for 7 months now and I don't know how much longer I can take it. Any advice?
Also I know there's already similar posts like this so I apoligize but I just really need a personal reponse.
