Fear of my migraines...anxiety worse

Posted , 3 users are following.

Ok so I've been having migraines and weird pains/feelings in my head for about 1 month now. I finally went to my doctor 4 days ago and she wants me to track them write them down and then she will prescribe me a MRI. She did some strength and cognitive things with me, and checked my pupils And she said I look too good for something like a tumor to be my problem.

The migraines and weird feelings are not debilitating and I can worke through them but my,anxiety is making me feel/think worse about them.

Its mostly on the right side like 90% right and 10%left.

I'm freaking out a little more Today because I started to feel light headed and they weren't accompanied with The migraines but it's all just happening and I'm afraid. Also a lady had a seizure at the store that I work at and that's been on my mind. I fear tumor, aneurysm and stroke(my dad had a stroke last year) and lately I've been hearing stories about people who had to have surgery on their head and that's all on my mind.

Also I've been have like gum/tooth pain on the right side (top part) so idk if that's contributing to anything.

      I agree with you! Well I might call my doctor and have a MRI done early, have you thought about any testing? Maybe you should especially with a family history.

      Its weird because a few months ago I was having chest pains and when the cardiologist did an echo, ECG and 30 day monitor and everything came back fine, my chest pains stopped, that made me believe that my anxiety was the real culprit, giving me "fake" symptoms. So hopefully my head pains (and yours) are a figment of our imagination.

      Definitely seems like anxiety (sorry to sound like the rest). For me it seems that whenever I have a problem with one area of my body and I get all the test done and rule out everything, then my anxiety (as a separate entity) recognizes that and move it's focus to another part of my body. Its weird that I'm explaining this to,you in this way because my mind still won't believe its the anxiety, and I know it's the same for you

      Ever since my,migraines started, yes I have been having eye trouble in my right eye. Some days it feels normal and then other days it feels a little blur. I'm constantly checking them.

    Hey. I've been having head pressure like feeling for 6 to 7 weeks now. A bit lightheaded too! My Neurologist is ordering a MRI of my brain and I can't wait to have it done! Don't know if it's my anxiety but I can't stop but to think that I may have something horrible going on in my head! Right now I got awakened by acid reflux and nausea and I'm afraid it's something really wrong with me sad
