Need workup first: See your pcp for exam/eval to rule out medical causes for your symptoms. You may need separate eye exam with ophthalmologist and hearing checked with ENT as well. List all meds, any alcohol/drug/tobacco/caffeine use and current stresses. Include your parents. Their history will help doctor. If all points to anxiety, ask for referral to a mental health professional for guidance. I hope this helps.
