Psychiatrist 's  Response
welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Your symptoms are very short duration (1 week) to make diagnosis of anxiety disorder, although it is one of the possibility in your case. As, symptoms are sudden onset, there is need to rule out other problem in following hierarchy:
-High BP leading to dizziness and vision disturbance
-Ophthalmic pathology leading to tunnel vision
-Vitamins deficiency
-Anxiety disorder or panic attack

If there is no problem after examination by general physician and ophthalmologist, you can visit to psychiatrist to rule out anxiety and panic attacks.

Wish you all the best.
