Um...I'm sixteen, overweight, (my bmi's about 27-28), I don't smoke or drink or anything like that, I wear glasses, I exercise everyday for half an hour and I'm finishing my exams. I went to the doctor and he said it was stress, but I've been stressed before and this has never happened.

I've been having:

-stiffness in my neck when I sit down

-an unpleasant tingling feeling on my skin- at first I thought I had an insect or a hair on me or something. This mainly happens in my face and neck but also my arms.

-I'm tired but I can't really sleep, especially at night. I've been having naps more than anything.

- I get a pain in the side of my head, where the sides of my glasses rest. It's not a proper headache because it only lasts a few seconds but it happens at least once a day and it's really sharp.

-Also I've been getting coloured spots and flashes in the side of my vision. Worse though is how it's sort of...cloudy. Like when a television has noise and goes fuzzy but obviously, no where near as bad or I wouldn't be able to see. But I went to the opticians this April and they didn't see anything when they looked at my eyes, although my perscription increased in the left eye slightly.

I hope I listed everything, and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot and please help.
