For the past few weeks I have constant anxiety and nothing really cools me down. Im scared to death. The main thing I worry about is that something is seriously wrong with me and that I might have brain tumor or something like that. The doctors told me that im organically very healthy person (they checked my lungs, my blood, heart, head etc.), but im soo scared because they made mistakes in the past and that is the main reason I am anxious and I think that they are missing something out. Now I just can't calm myself down because I don't know if anxiety is really the only thing that is doing me all these things. I can be a bit more nervous or sometimes less but I am rarely completely calm. They are also sending me to MRI, but I have to wait for couple of months. They said that they are pretty sure that there is nothing wrong, but that they will send me, so that I can cool down and also "just in case" there is something wron with my brain.They are pretty positive everything is alright with me.
I have almost constant unbalance feeling while im walking. I have feeling like somebody is pushing me... Sometimes forwards, sometimes backwards, sometimes left... Usually it increases when I walk for longer amount of times, but not always. This happens even when im almost calm (I've been very rarely calm for the past few weeks). But on other hand I walk completely straight.
I have head pressure (not extremely strong) and not in the same location all the time. The pressure increases if I stand up and walk, but sometimes decreases if I jog. Almost every single time it decreases when I sit down for longer period of time. It is also true that I sometimes become more nervous when I start walking because I know that the pressure will increase.. but idk...
Sometimes I have very weird tingling feeling in my chest (near heart usually) and sometimes stomach, but the feeling feels good (like butterflies in stomach). I experience this feeling usually when I calm myself down (rarely...)
I am also dizzy, but I think a bit less then I used to be. I also have feeling like im going to faint in few seconds, but never actually happens.
I also have constant shortness of breath. I feel like I don't get enough air. The results showed that my lungs are healthy and that I have enough oxygen in my blood.
I just can't completely calm myself down, because if I sit my symptoms are usually not soo strong and I constantly think about my health (still normal for anxiety?). I try to live healthy life. I eat pretty healthy and I also love doing sports. Well i used to do a lot of sports, but now I usually get very nervous because I think im going to faint if I do it and I become very dizzy.
I just feel hopeless, because I don't know if anxiety is really a thing that is making me all these things and I can't stop worrying something is organically wrong with me. Is there really nothing to worry about ? Even if get calmer the symptoms are not necessarily going to be lighter. The symptoms are more are less all constant (maybe not when I sleep). If I knew it is 100% just anxiety I would probably be able to calm myself down.
