Hi all. Sorry for returning so soon.
My anxiety has reached a peak and I am not sure how to break the cycle.
I posted on here a few days ago about my brain tumour fear which I have had now since the very beginning of this year after a virus left me feeling woozy and off balance.
I have been to see my doctor four times since and detailed my symptoms and explained my fear. I was told that it was a mixture of severe anxiety - current and severe life stresses as well as fluid build up in my ear.
I've had frequent panic attacks as I continued to believe I have a tumour and now I find myself checking every sensation, every feeling and 'waiting' to feel instead or woozy (which sometimes brings it on.)
I have floaters in my eyes and find myself checking them constantly or worrying they are becoming worse (even though I had a VERY thorough eye test only a few months ago and was given the all clear.)
I now seem to have caused panick attacks in which I fear losing control, losing train of thought and not being able to converse. My palms get sweaty and I find I have to fidget my legs to keep it at bay.
I get so over whelmed with anxiety that I bring on confusion or feel like my brain is not functioning right just through fearing these things. I am terrified that I have a tumour which is destroying my brain despite the amount of attention my doctor has given me.
Every little change in my body I notice and attribute to the one thing which elevates my anxiety.
I am currently starting counciling. What else can I do?
