Oh hello doc . The weather has gotten very cold . And now I can definitely feel the dryness and soreness in the under eye area. I don't know if this is related to the weather or dry eyes or perhaps something normal , I've noticed that in low light areas I experience slight pulsation when looking at walls . It feels entropic. And it's very external like seeing some your brain waves on walls. It's making me anxious . I do not want running around for more tests and all . I mean what else do you need than a brain MRI and a dilated exam? I've also noticed that it happens to me more when I am feeling cold or my eyes are feeling sensitive due to dry eyes . Sometimes when I blink too hard then also there's vision pulsation very slightly but that feels internal . This wall thing feels like it's happening externally . Am I making sense ? I definitely don't have some srojens syndrome or whatever it is cuz I've had blood tests like sugar RA factor platelet count hemoglovin everytjng is clear . I am getting panicky again ... :-/

I'll give you an example to make it clear . My TV room is a bit lowly lit. In the day time I experience this when I am sitting close to the window from where the sunlight is coming . In the night time it doesn't happen. Sometimes my eyes feel like there's some wind bowing near it , basically dry. No visual effects tho . But ugh is there something wrong wth me ?
Eye Doctor: Dr. Rick, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

There is no need to panic.

There is nothing serious wrong with you but your anxiety does seem to be acting up.

Does this make sense to you?
