i have had a difficult couple of years & just lost my Dad to Lung & brain cancer. I had to watch him suffer for 3 months & it made my anxiety shoot through the roof. For the last few months I have had a build up of mucus in the back of my throat, an occasional fullness in my ears & throbbing in my head when I bent over. I was told that it was probably Sinus issues. of cause didnt believe my doctor & started assuming i had a brain tumor or something especially given my Dad was dieing from Brain cancer although the primary cancer was in his lung. The mucus problem appears to be settling down with the help of nasal rinsing however I now have this strange sensation in my forehead like a cold feeling on the skin. I don't think my skin feels cold to touch. All I have been doing is Googling this & of cause it comes up with aneurysms, tumors, MS etc etc & this just makes me notice the sensation more! However, I have also noticed that anxiety can cause strange physical sensations & I am wondering whether this is what I am experiencing. If I don't concentrate on the sensation I forget about it but then I remember I have forgot about it & look for it. Its mentally exhausting & I absolutely hate worrying, it stops me functioning properly.
