Along with the headaches my eyes have begun playing up. When I'm staring straight ahead I can see sparkles and stars, or blurred lines. I've recently been prescribed glasses for reading and concentrating but when I'm not wearing them I can see all this other stuff. I had a complete meltdown on the way to work this morning. Anyone know what this is? I'm so convinced it's something serious
Update on the constant headaches health an... - Anxiety Support
Yes actually! Everything you are both feeling is classic anxiety signs. However if either of you are nearsighted (meaning you can see up close but need glasses to see far away) then the sparkles and stars are such are even more normal. I myself have these issues. But no it is not a brain tumor. It is just your eyes doing what anxiety does to them. The sparkles and stuff (especially the blurred lines) are called floaters as well. When you are stressed out or even just randomly with anxiety you can see these things. Not a tumor or anything. The only thing you can do is try to ignore it and your body will naturally "filter it out" because thats what it normally does anyway. The only reason why we can see them more often than usual is because anxiety makes it happen more and more. So yeah, you guys are going crazy and do not have brain tumors. Its all just your anxiety
I actually have really bad floaters so when I see stuff out of the corners of my eyes i automatically assume "Crap I have schizophrenia" or "Ok one more thing to check off on my list of psychotic symptoms" even tho I do not have schizophrenia and the things I see are a product of my anxiety and crappy eye sight. But oh well. I also get a weird spot in my left eye that I can only see when I blink. When that spot shows up thats how I know i am about to get a tiny migraine. I've been to the doctor about it and she said that its nothing really to worry about
I get the same things plus eye strains, fatigue, and light headedness.
Nothing I do triggers it, it just comes on...
I am still in denial that it's anxiety, i continue to look for physical explanations. My neck always seems sore too... who knows.
Hypochondriac the past few months... oversensitive to every symptom I feel...
It's a never ending quick sand!
Great advice! Thank you
My headaches went away, but I get the eye strains... like it's hard to focus going from one view to another.
