Accepting death

Posted , 8 users are following.

About to finish the semester and preparing for imminent seizure and diagnosis. Right temple area pressure tension for about a week. Been convinced of a brain tumor for 8 months and never had any headaches / head symptoms until now. I just don't know what to do. I don't want to ruin the holidays for my family with this diagnosis. could anything else cause this? I doubt it but im just so at a loss right now. this must be the end

    Hi Samantha ,

    I felt the same until recently. Sounds to me like all it is, is anxiety. If you try to forget about it and the symtoms improve then that's all it probably is . Go see a doc and question him/her about anxiety and they may confirm it for you smile

    Samantha, you will be here for this holiday and many, many, many more to come! Let a doctor show you that you are ok! Stress is giving you this anxiety. Don't let the anxiety demon win. You take charge of it and kick it out the door!

    This is just anxiety, was at my doctor today... And she said she has seen so many people with the same anxiety, prescribed me a low dose of xanax and another anti anxiety tablet and told me to come back In a month.. this is literally your anxiety and the stress your body is under is causing an unbelievable amount of pressure in your head... Please don't worry it will get better ..

    I agree with all the posters.Also sinus infection can caus that symptom.I am sure you can forget the brain tumor thing.So dont think about that and keep scareing yourself.Sinus infection can last awhile and antibiotics will get rid of it. Merry Christmas.xx
