Plz help me Im lost of what to do

Hi, for the past year and a half ive been having trouble figuring out what i have and im very confused! its driving me crazy and i feel like over time its going to make me crazy. its really hard to describe what i feel. ive found some things on the internet that seem to be describing what i have but im not sure really. I like explain it that i feel like a zombie and and i have a really hard time concentrating and thinking clearly i also wear glasses so i feel like my glasses are putting a very heavy strain on my eyes and brain and i get headaches constantly. Also i see double of my nose on both sides on my vision kinda like when u cross your eyes this is a 24/7 occurrence btw and it also makes life feel really dull and unreal kinda like im in a dreamy state kinda spaced out which makes me feel like i cant drive cause i feel spaced out and dreamy. Ive researched my symptoms and i came across depersonalization and something called brain fog, which seem very accurate but as i said i also have trouble with my eyes so i dont know, also whenever i do something boring that's repetitive or something it gets much worse than when im doing something kinda fun like video games, and when i do something boring i get a really bad headache. It makes life feel unreal and i kinda have to feel around to FEEL the world its very weird and disturbing its really scaring me that it might not go away or something. Another thing i also have really bad social anxiety that makes me to scared to even get a job cause im scared of a interview something as small as that and ive read that anxiety can be linked to depersonalization and brain fog but if i have either of those what is wrong with my eyes? ive got a MRI of my brain and nothing showed up like tumor thank god and also i went to a optomoligist and they said they didnt see anything so i assume its all mental or somewhat with me eyes. At this point im very lost what to do and i just decided to post on this forum to see if anyone else has had this PLZ PLZ help me im really lost and thank u for reading this.

Hi I have been having the dreamlike state also. For the past 3 days iv felt like I'm in a dream. Iv never been so scared in my life. Feel like I'm going crazy. Afraid to talk to ppl about it bc they are gonna look at me like I'm crazy. It's so hard to try & ignore it & go on but iv been trying bc I have 4 kids that need me. Hopefully it will be going away soon but idk I have read on here that some ppl have had this going on every day for the last 5 yrs. I couldn't imagine everyday for the last 5 yrs. & hope mine don't last for the next couple months let alone the next 5 yrs. I'm sorry I don't have any remedies to help but I thought it mite help to know I'm going thro the same thing. All besides the vision.

Hi.  Is good that vision and major head issues have been ruled out.

I'm not a doctor but I could throw some things out there.
Visual disturbance from a panic attack or hyperventilation.  Dissociation from severe anxiety.  Eye strain.  It's possible that it's a combination of things.

It might be a good idea to see your family doctor.  They can order bloods, etc. and are in a better position to ascertain what may be going on.  It might be a good opportunity for you to discuss your anxiety as well.

In the meantime it might be a good idea to try some breathing exercises and also exercises that help you to feel grounded.

It's just your vision. When you stare at things for awhile, your eyes hurt. It happens to me sometimes also.
