Anxiety: I'm glad your spine, blood, eye and neuro exams were clear. With all this, brain tumor is unlikely. You question whether anxiety can cause some of these problems, and it's possible. It sounds like your family physician has started an initial workup, and wants to help you. Consulting with a psychiatrist may be a good idea also; can work w/you on the anxiety piece. Maybe a sleep study also.

First please have a complete physical exam by Doctor to know if you have an illness. Please see a Clinical Psychologist with expertise in multiple types of psychotherapy for a diagnostic evaluation and for help. This will help you to know if you need medication from a Psychiatrist. A sleep study prescribed by your Doctor could help.
