After images with anxiety


I've been experiencing all sorts of visual issues for the past few months ever since my anxiety started. I originally had visual snow and it got worse when I kept obsessing about it. Which caused me alot of stress and in turn gave me anxiety. The vs isn't noticeable now and now I seem to notice after images alot more. Especially with stuff that's bright like a tv at night time . Am I hyper aware of it now and is it normal and I'm just over reacting to it because it got me anxious in the first place? I also get ghosting images sometimes and I feel like I can't concentrate.

I get this as well, but after a mild brain injury due to a car collision.

Are you receiving any CBT for your anxiety.

I also have floaters in my vision. These are normal as you get older

I suggest discussing with your GP, could have another cause and you are just focusing on it. I was sent away to get an eye test from Specsavers first.

Acceptance seems to be the only way to over come these things. You won't get better untill you stop trying
