Thank you, Mark! I know you're right and that I need to ignore it and stop obsessing. It sure is hard though, especially when someone told me it should be looked at, and then the first doctor really didn't examine it all that well.
This raises my pet subject.. The total lack of sensitivity on the part of so called professionals when they talk to patients or clients. The number of times I have heard of people being really frightened by some careless remark or lack of communication. Doctors and the like should be given extensive training in communication which so many lack. A wrong word here or there, just one word will do; a look, a frown an indrawing of breath registers on a sensitised persons mind, and can cause havoc for days after. It's happened to me in the past.
Some years ago I was in hospital with one of the most insensitive nursing sisters I have ever come across. She should not have been allowed anywhere near a patient let alone be a nurse. When I complained to the consultant he shrugged his shoulders and smiled. It was, of course, my fault!! It comes back to the old story, unless you have been there and had real anxiety you can never know what an out of place word can do.
OK, so we do exaggerate I know, but that should be taken into consideration. But, alas, so many professionals lack compassion let alone understanding.
Hello, that's a pretty poor show by your optician, they should make you feel anything other but assured. Well all of the symptoms you are now showing are the result of consistent analysis of your body. This introspection throws your senses and puts your nerves into a over sensitive setting. You're now also catastrophizing future situations which feeds back into the anxiety machine. Ok, you were examined in the past and test were done which came back negative which is good. Your eye symptoms have not changed for years so it's unlikely that something has changed which would then cause exactly the same symptom in exactly the same area. The headaches will most certainly be rooted in tension. You can always ask for them to scan again to put your mind at ease. Try not to diagnose yourself, leave that to the doctors. They seem unconcerned so rest assured. I know you will have them niggling thoughts and the introspection is difficult so perhaps try some mind calming meditation to ease the rumination.
