Problems with sight and balance


I have posted on here before but my symptoms are getting out of hands. It's been seven months now my sight doesn't seem right and I have bad dizziness. I have seen 3 different opticians, ENT, ophthalmologist, my HIV consultant and GP and there doesn't seem to be a cause. This fuels my anxiety because it starts from the moment I wake up and I get a break only if I close my eyes. I also get nausea. I am now on 20mg fluoxetine, day 11, and still can't notice many benefits, but I am reluctant to think that this can be caused by anxiety only. Has anyone had this? Thanks.

I have suffered dreadfully in the past with dizziness and blurred vision due to anxiety

Like you I found it hard to believe anxiety could cause this but after several different tests all clear I had to accept it and when I did things got better , I do still get it from time to time but accepting I am feeling stressed soon puts it back in perspective :-)
