    This happened to me too. I had my daughter in November of 2013 and in march of 2014 my anxiety was so bad. I never had health anxiety until I had my baby. From March of 2014 until yesterday I thought I had a brian tumor. I went to the Er and the provider who saw me was also worried I had a brian tumor from the symptoms I told her I was having. I had labs and a full CT scan of my head and I'm fine. You have no idea how awesome I feel knowing I was worried for nothing. I waste almost two years of my life in a panic but I feel so awesome now but they do think I have Bells Palsy, but shoot, I'd take that over a brian tumor anyday!!! If you feel like something is wrong, go talk to your PCP and see what they say. If you need to, go to the ER. They will do a full work up on you. Just go get your peace of mind. It is worth it. smile
