In brief: Yes you can

Yes you can. With anxiety your body goes into fight/flight mode.
This is an instead response our body acts to danger. Your pupils dilate which can cause blurry vision. You also get flight of ideas simulating a mania state. In this state you may become dyspeptic, distortion of reality, abnormal thoughts.
