anxiety + panic over thinking i have a brain tumor??

Posted , 6 users are following.

My scalp has been really sore lately, i'd been panicking thinking I had a brain tumor-- just when I started to think I was probably fine though, I had what i'm 99% sure was a temporal lobe/psychic seizure (sickening super strong feelings of deja vu + nausea that left me feeling nauseous for days) and now i've been extremely anxious about the possibility that i have a brain tumor. i'm still VERY young, and I want to get a scan but my family won't take me seriously, i'm so anxious and just terrified and hopeless and i don't know what to do. Could this just be anxiety??? I don't think thats all it is.... i'm scared.

    Have you had a full medical check up to rule stuff out?

    Have you been diagnosed with anxiety?

      If you are suffering so bad from what you think is anxiey go and get checked.

      The doctor is the one who makes the diagnosis not you

      With anxiety you have to help yourself it thrives of fear

    I don't think you have a brain tumor.  One of the most common symptoms of this is fits or seizures - jerking or twitching of a hand, arm or leg.

    See your doctor for the anxiety issues and she'll get to the bottom of it I'm sure.

    Sounds like you have health anxiety, just like me wink honestly it doesn't matter how crazy you sound, getting tests and check ups can be a source of relief when they tell you you're ok. Once (if you decide to do that) it's over with definitely get checked about anxiety and maybe explore medicinal routes to help tame it or look for some home remedies to help combat it. Hope this helps smile

    Try and relax. If you relax, chances are it'll stop. I would suggest seeing your gp and going through everything. If your symptoms worsen, I would suggest further consulting your gp. I used to have all sorts of aches and pains and be paranoid about it. They would usually go within a week. Chances are its health anxiety. Are your symptoms constant, like 24/7?

    Stay off of google! Its going to make you think yiu have some of everything and anything. There are signs of a brain tumor and what you wrote isnt one. You can always simply ask you parents for an eye exam. A secret trick for you because they can into your eyes, all the way in and see everything is good. The eyes would be effected, the nerves would be. So forget about the brain scan and just ask for a full exam. Thats why they dialte people eye to see all the nerves and connections back  there. And it will calm you down nicely.
