I'm a newbie to this community and need some support over what really is a stupid thing that keeps playing on my mind. I started suffering with migraines in January this year with flickering lights etc. Since then my eyes have been extremely sensitive with visual disturbances (all the symptoms of migraine). This has made me extremely anxious looking out for the symptoms of a detached retina, increase in floaters, flashing lights etc. I've been to the optician twice to get my eyes checked out but still seem to be paranoid about this happening. It causes my heart to race and I go very hot and then try and visualise life with only one eye having to give up driving etc and so the anxiety continues. It really would be nice to start living as normal a life as I did before Christmas instead of living each day on my nerves.
