Anxietys got the better of me again. I went to see my doctor this morning as i was worried about the constant headache & tight sore neck and shoulders. So he did my temp, blood pressure , checked my ears and throat and checked my pupil dilation. Then asked me some questions about the headaches. He then said that he was very confident i had no tumour or anything sinister in my brain but then checked my eyes with this weird clicky contraption that got closer n closer to my eyes and changed angle. After he had finished he said my eyes and other tests blood pressure , temp , pupils and eyes were absoloutly fine. So i asked why ive had a constant headache for 3 weeks and he simply said stress & tension. He did say however that my sinuses and throat still needed abit more work as i still have signs of infection so told me to use steam and gargle salt water 6 times a day. Now my doctor is great and amazing but i dont seem to be able to believe that he can tell just by looking at my eyes that i dont have a tumour is it possible to see anything sinister ? I had full bloods done 8 weeks ago and all was normal. Is this really just stress and tension for so long? I wont lie the muscles in my shoulders and neck are so sore if they are touched i jump in the air( been getting partner to give me massages). Am i just being a stupid again?? . The doctor did also say that the common misconception with brain tumours is that u have a constant headache all the time but actually people with brain tumours actually rarely complain of them and its other symptoms which he wouldnt tell me lol ..
