My advice is "go to the drs. and have them test you out of your fear, with 100% certainty".

For me nothing else works, unfortunately.

Valley - you and I have been on this site a while, I think we probably joined around the same time.

I can tell you, you are NOT going blind. Everything you listed is very common and I had all the same symptoms multiple times this week.

I have a friend of a friend who IS going blind from a very rare, genetic condition - he KNEW something was wrong. You are fine!

All of the symptoms associated with that could also be cause by sinus or allergies.

That's the curse of ha we always assume we have the most deadly or life changing disease we can find while searching online. Saying is HAS to either be this or a brain tumour proves that you've unwittingly fallen into that trap yourself. Possibly without even realising (I'm not judging! I've some that a few times myself :p)

If you're really worried I would see a gp so they can check your sinuses etc. There are many other things that would be much more likely (and benign) that vague symptoms such as that could be :) your sore neck could be tension from worrying about your symptoms.

You're ok :) take a breath and try to think what you'd say to a friend if they came to you with the same symptoms and had reached the same conclusion. Would you agree with them? Probably not :)

Your sinuses are behind and around your eyes so if you're having problems with them they can cause weird feelings and sensations in your eyes :)

What symptoms are you having that make you feel like you're going blind?

Those are all also anxiety symptoms. :)

Have you seen the list of symptoms that is at the top of the forum? If not, have a read thorough it. You'll be amazed just how many uncomfortable body sensations can be caused by anxiety.

Try not to google symptoms too. I know it can be hard but seriously googles algorithms don't always bring up the best match. Especially with health :p.

Those symptoms are so vague and then google brings up an article on some rare and obscure disease that causes blindness? :)

One example I personally know of that I've mentioned a few times on here is a friend who googled her twitching eyelid. Googles first match? Eyelid cancer... Not stress, not a tiny nerve that's just misfiring for a day or two. EYELID cancer.

I always remember than when I feel the urge to google and then realise it will probably only scare me if I give in to the urge :)
