convinced of BT

Posted , 2 users are following.

in addition to many other posts, for the past 8 months I have been convinced I have a brain tumor. the only medical evidence against this was normal pupil dilation, and no papilladema, and normal blood results. im too scared to get an MRI because i know I'm dying why live my last months in misery. im in college and no one would know i was experiencing these things. recent symptoms that are furthering the convincing are:

-burning like scalp sensation on right side of head

- i constantly have random memories pop into my head. not flashbacks or auras just memories of random irrelevant things that happened many years ago.

diagnosed with GAD and panic disorder, moderate/severe c1/c2 vertebrate problems, OCD. could this be psychosomatic/ neuropathy/ anxiety or do any of these sound like real BT symptoms. i really dont want to die and I feel an apathy towards things- like why should i study for finals if im going to die? i doubt ill see my 21st birthday and I just hope this diagnosis comes after the holidays so it doesnt ruin everything for my family. someone please help.

    Hello Sam it's the same answer as last time from me I'm afraid you need to see your GP. Nobody can diagnose you on here. I understand you are going through a tough time but please see your GP. Best wishes
