I feel like I am overreacting but I wanted to check this out before I rush off to my doctor. I am a 25 year old female. For the past five days, I've been dealing with strange headaches along the top of my head, confusion, and severe fatigue. Aching in my elbow joints and tingling in my feet as well. The headaches haven't been severe but enough to be annoying and when I take painkillers for them, they go away only to return the next day and they feel like I have someone gripping the top of my head with their fingers.
I've also been sleeping eight to ten hours a night but still waking up absolutely exhausted. I've been getting confused and forgetting things and maybe I am depressed? I'm not sure because I have been just so tired but I haven't been feeling...sad? And clumsiness too but I have always been clumsy all of my life. And confusion while driving. Like I cannot focus very well on the road.
Now I honestly cannot tell if these are signs of severe stress or a brain tumor. My mom has been going thru treatment for early stage breast cancer for the last four months and she had stopped treatment last Friday after 9 chemo sessions. After she decided to stop, I felt like I had crashed and burned and since then I've been exhausted. My father died last year and my sister died the year before and in 2015 I had a breast cancer scare when I found a lump and since then I have been very concerned about my health and If feel like I am overreacting but this all just started right out of the blue. My mom decided on Friday not to return to chemo and Saturday I began feeling like a pile of poop.
So what I was thinking was giving this a few more days before I made an appt with my doctor. I feel better today but still pretty fatigued. A lot more clear, my brain doesn't feel like a pile of cotten but I am still getting those light tension-y headaches on top of my head as well. Does anyone think I should worry? I hate being so scared.
