Vision problems, burning and tingling, ect.

This started for me two months ago with sudden vision changes where I felt weird pressure, double vision, blurred vision, and couldn't read. Went to the ER and by the time I got there it had gone away and the cat scan didn't show anything so I was released. The next week my symptoms progressed as the vision changes came back and have never gotten better but much worse to the point now I always feel like I am snow blind or can see but not really see if that makes sense?! Along with the constant vision problems I have had tingling and numbness, loss of coordination, burning sensations, exhaustion, brain fog, some weird pains that seem to travel around my body, vertigo. Some days some of these symptoms are better than other days but it is always changing and seems to be getting worse! One night after doctors appointments and being really tired I all of the sudden couldn't read, think, talk, or write!! I have had a CAT scan and a MRI both clear. The regular blood test that first rule out the obvious have come back normal. The neurologist I was seeing says it could be anxiety and a couple migraines but I have had both before and totally disagree. My eye doctor says my eyes looks fine. Very frustrating experience! Anyone have anything similar or advice? Please and thank you!!

No I don't have a shunt. I wish financially I could make it to see the doctor you above suggested but I am in Utah.
