Brain symptoms scared

Posted , 2 users are following.

So I'm hoping you all could read this and give me any reasurance or advice. I'm at a complete loss right now.

Two years ago I had a CT scan of my brain. For my vertigo symptoms. They said it was clear and nothing to worry about. Well now two years later and I'm experiencing these weird symptoms.

Constant deja vu moments. I'll be thinking to myself or talking to someone then bam, a quick thought that feels very familiar, like it's from a dream, hits me. As soon as I try to focus on it, it goes away. It feels so familiar yet I can never tell what it is.

I heard constant deja vu could be small seizures and it could be a brain tumor.

Anytime I try to focus my eyes on something or if I blink slowly, the back of my neck and my whole head twitches. Enough to cause it to move. It's really odd. I can make this happen if I tighten my neck musclesin the back? I think that's what I'm doing idk. It feels like a twitch in the back of my neck and whole head. Again, I heard head twitches can be a seizure.

If I move my head around, I'll notice extreme vertigo and my eyes can't focus on anything.

And I'm also seeing moving objects like floaters in the corners of my eyes.

All of these symptoms have convinced me I have a brain tumor. Am I over reacting? I feel so hopeless. I just want to be happy.

    If you had a CT scan a couple years ago and it was clear then your sensations are most likely due to a high level of stress and anxiety. When I was in my 20s I had the same thing happened. Déjà vu is very common especially in people with anxiety. So is vertigo and floaters. i’ve had vertigo several times and I’ve had floaters since my late 20s when I came down with a bunch of other symptoms all due to long-term stress and anxiety. My floaters come and go and I am now in my 60s! I notice them more when I am more anxious. It’s weird but I know other people have the same thing. Déjà vu is nothing to worry about. Don’t always believe the things that you hear. listen to your doctor. They are the ones with the education and experience. If everything that you believe about these sensations were true, I would probably be long gone!

    are there things in your life causing you to have a high-level of stress or anxiety? Think about what’s going on. I would say right now the best thing for you would be to speak with a counselor about all of this.

    You’d be surprised how much and how many symptoms and weird sensations that stress can cause. I think that you are overthinking everything and creating more anxiety for yourself. I know what you are feeling is scary and I felt the same way years ago but don’t think worst case scenario because it’s most likely not true. we can "convince" ourselves that we have any condition or disease but that doesn’t make it true because our thoughts about it are not based on true facts or evidence. our thoughts about it are only based on fear. A CT scan does not lie and is extremely accurate.

    so get some support for this and take one day at a time. It’s great to talk to somebody who can help you manage this. Take care
