Monday and Tuesday I had made huge progress. My medication seemed to be working and I felt like myself again..my anxiety eased off a lot and I could think clearly and rationally - especially as the woozy sensation and head/ear pressure was reducing since using my medication.
I started to feel positive and now I'm going backwards again
I caught a virus this week which made my ears feel worse and it brought back the woozy sensation - which did make my anxiety stir, but I tried to keep it at bay.
For a few days now I've been getting itchy at night - my whole body itches and I get little bumps. I put it down to the fact I was relaxing but then last night the itching was very bad and it is still there again today.
I had a look to see if I could use anything - but all that comes up are brain tumours. Brain tumours seem to be the cause of everything ... And now I'm frightened again.
I'm trying to tell myself that it's far more likely to be anxiety/new medication or even my new washing powder (I haven't used this brand in a long time and also I don't believe my washing machine is rinsing items as well as it could,) I tell myself all these other factors are far more likely and yet i feel myself panick and I'm on the verge of running to my doctor AGAIN. I have been so many times this year...
I have a follow up appointment in a week to review the medication I was given, but the panick is back everything suddenly seems like symptoms all pointing to one thing.
The people around me try and reason with me, they tell me that nine months on I wouldn't just be itching or feeling woozy... I'm trying desperately to get back to the mindset I was in on Tuesday morning...
I hope people don't mind me posting so much I don't really know what else to do.
