Hello I'll keep this as brief as I can but I'm hoping someone can help. I've been feeling dizzy/lightheaded for weeks and headaches when I wake up. I had some bloods done and urine samples sent in which have come back showing high levels of blood in my urine. I've been referred to the hospital but me being me I'm literally sending myself crazy with worry. I look at my one year old son and start crying thinking I'm not gonna see him grow up, this ends up with me walking round the house crying to myself, feeling dizzy and then the ringing in my ears gets worse. I've had this ringing in my ears ever since the doc requested tests and it hasn't gone. Everything sounds louder and when my baby shrieks it literally hurts my ears and the ringing gets louder. I'm finding it so hard to cope thinking I'm about to leave my little boy if this is cancer or something.
Anxiety about health and anxeity in General is ruining my life. My partner doesn't understand had my work colleagues ridicule me for it and blame it on the job I do (I work In healthcare). I truth I've ALWAYS been a worrier and can never chill.
Anyway, what I really wanna know (sorry for rambling) is it you think the dizziness and ringing in my ears might not be the kidney/bladder/brain cancer I've diagnosed myself with! Could this actually be anxiety?
Actually thinking of going to A&E in the morning because I can't cope thinking I'm dying but they're gonna think I'm insane. My doc has referred me routinely for the blood in my urine but with this dizziness/ lightheadedness I'm thinking it's gotta be cancer. Feel like a totally different person to the person I was a few weeks ago. I've had citalopram in the past but don't wanna take it again. I don't feel depressed ....I feel like I live in a big bubble of anxiety which I can usually control but can't at the moment.
If you've managed to read through this ....well done!!
