I'll try keep this as simple as possible. I have anxiety issues which revolves around my health. For example, I had a uti which caused me a bit of testical pain which I thought the worse of. I pretty much convinced my self I had cancer, and this was the end. Obviously I didn't know I had a uti at the time so when I took a trip to the doctors I was more than relieved to find out it wasn't cancer. Now my fears have turned to a brain tumour. I've had headaches pretty much all my adult life (I believe it's due to bad eyesight and straining). I've had this sort of headache before (feels like pressure on my forehead and an odd cramp sharp feeling in one side which only last for seconds). I ventured to the doctors where she took my blood pressure and basically told me to stop worrying and sent me on my way. After that the headaches basically stopped for months. Now this headache has come back, but this time feels stronger. It's almost like I have a cold in my head. The pain comes and goes throughout the day (I say pain but it's more of a nuicence than a pain) and is definitely worse when I think about it. I sleep fine and have no problems at all, but as soon as I wake up I'm constantly thinking about the pain and before I know it, it's back. Should I be worried? Is it worth taking another dreaded trip back to the doctors? I forgot to mention that normal paracetamol don't have any effect, although migraine tablets do SOME times. Also if I stare suddenly into a bright light, I get the cramp feeling I've been explaining. So to sum it up, my head feels blocked and I get these sudden cramp like dull aches on both sides of my forehead, which only last for a couple of seconds. Pain fades when I'm not worrying about but always returns. Had this for about 3 days now.
