I am new here and have recently been diagnosed with high levels of anxiety. I have a lot going on eg; stomach pains, indigestion, dry mouth/throat, muscle pains and seem to be getting very itchy with dry skin. From what I have read these CAN actually happen with stress and anxiety, BUT my question is, has ANYONE experienced sore/dry/reddish eyes as well with stress and anxiety?
I would say every day over the last 2months along with the other symptoms my eyes have felt dry/sore and looked quite inflamed and red. In saying that people who look at me say my eyes don't look incredibly red inflamed, just like I haven't slept. Typically they are worse on waking in the morning which makes me suspicious it is not caused by anxiety/stress.
I would LOVE to hear from ANYONE who has experienced this symptom or anything like it PLEEEEEEEEEEASE.
I guess I am not entirely convinced all my symptoms are actually due to stress/anxiety as my Doctor has said. I am generally a happy person and on the DAS test (Depression, Anxiety, Stress) that my doctor gave me I was completely normal aside from anxiety which was raised.
Anyway THANKS in advance.
