Hi and Welcome to Healing Well and the A & P forum. I am Kitt.
This is almost a typical story of the way generalized anxiety presents these days. Psychotherapy can help as well as medication. :)
I would recommend keeping that appointment with the eye Doctor. I am also very happy to hear you are being your own advocate and seeking out a psychiatrist.
You have joined a wonderful and caring forum and the members here know what your going through so please stay with us and keep posting.
Again a Warm Welcome.
Hi. Yes, anxiety can "show it's face" in many different ways. While you wait to see a doctor, I would try to relax by doing some deep breathing, taking warm baths, anything.
Hope this helps a bit.
Yes, this is another thing you may notice with anxiety. Another thing that would cause this phenomenon would be head trauma.
You do not mention that you have had any head injuries recently say within the last 4-6 weeks.
Take care and keep posting.
