Visual Symptoms, Schizophrenia, and Social Anxiety
I have been having strange visual occurances, on occasion. They used to be only fleeting multi-colored dots in my vision, but I've hard colored "blotches" that will block whole sections of my sight, and most recently I've seen "rain drops" that appeared randomly around me, which actually startled me when it was happening. I don't know if these could be considered "hallucinations" which would be a symptom of schizophrenia.
Another thing that concerns me is my very persistent and only-deepening social anxiety, my psychiatrist, after some convincing, thought it might spill a little bit over to paranoia. So he prescribed me a "baby dose" of risperidone, I think it helped "somewhat" but am not sure what it was alleviating specifically. Is it possible I have a mild version of schizophrenia?
