Brain damage, kidney? I don't know whats wrong ?[br>Hi, I have been having headaches lately and have been severely stressed, i have been prescribed diazepam, I took 3-4 pills 5mg in the past 2 weeks and I do not feel anxious anymore. But I am worried about my health. My pupils seem a lot larger than usual in the past week, especially in the dark obviously but they are even bigger than usual. Also I have very visible veins in the last 2 weeks and I get stinging pain in arms-joints-abdominal and legs. [br>I had blood tests and the doc said they were fine and he thinks its from anxiety. But I have a headache every single day lately all day. Also sometimes my vision is a bit blurry-snowy.

Hi:

Stress and/or anxiety can cause various symptoms, even wreaking havoc on the entire body, and the effects can linger on even long after the event(s) that caused it have ended.

......"and he thinks it's from anxiety.

Keep pursuing this matter until you are 100% confident/satisfied with the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis.

Best of luck down the road of life

Take care,
