Weird Symptoms

I have been dealing with a bunch of undiagnosed symptoms for a while now. I have a bunch of floaters in both eyes and have been to an eye doctor who said everything was fine with my eyes. I have constant all day everyday tingling, pricking, crawling sensation all over my entire body. I find myself tired almost all the time throughout the day. I also have been having sleep disturbances. Recently I will be jolted awake just as i'm starting to fall asleep and my heart would be racing but as soon as i wake up it comes back down. It makes me scared to go to sleep sometimes. I also will get this sharp stabbing pain on the top back of my head. They would last for a few seconds then go away just annoying really. Also my neck is very stiff a lot of the time. I have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and am taking prozac daily and xanax as needed. My main concern is that are all of these symptoms caused by anxiety? Because i find that very hard to believe.

The floaters in your eye are harmless, i have them, they are more of a pest than anything else. The problems with your sleep could be due to stress or anxiety, speak to your doc about this as it could be a sleep problem, cant think of the name for it but normally you will be sent to a sleep clinic where they can monitor you whilst you sleep, i suffer with the same thing and am being reffered, its very very scarey. The stabbing pain in head is probably anxiety and so is the  neck pain. If your not happy with what doctors are telling you and you dont feel something isnt right ask for a 2nd opinion. Hope this had helped and good luck.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
The symptoms can be caused by anxiety, however you need to get investigated to rule out other causes. Paresthesias or abnormal sensations like pricking, crawling etc can be due to diabetes, thyroid disorders, Lyme's or lupus should also be ruled out.
Vitamin B12 deficiency too should be looked into. Hypoparathyroidism too should be looked into apart from hypothyroidism. Neck strain, spondylotic changes in cervical vertebrae, bone disease or bad posture should be looked into.
I would suggest you get the blood levels of the following checked if they have not already been checked: potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, vitamin B complex, or vitamins B1, B3, or B6 and Vitamin D. Get your kidney function, parathyroid gland function and adrenal function tests done because these affect the electrolyte balance in the body. Stress, alcohol, caffeine and fatigue all cause similar symptoms. Certain sleep disorders like apnea, insomnia etc should also be investigated.
Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
