have been really well for a couple of years but I have started with headaches and I am thinking it is a brain tumour.  Thought my health anxiety had gone but it was just laying dormant

    Try to relax and ease your mind, don't go off googling stuff or worrying yourself. I've come to realize that a lot of people with anxiety are hypochondriacs, I too am the same way. Anxiety doesn't just disappear, as you said it was probably just dormant. It comes and goes as it pleases and that's one of the reasons I hate it the most! Don't worry, maybe go get checked out to be on the safe side, doing that will also ease your mind. Good luck! I hope everything turns out okay for you. Keep us posted!

      I know that feel, hun! Trust me... It's hard to resist, but you just have to ignore it and leave it to the professionals. Doctors are awesome people and they're there for us! Everything will be fine I'm sure, best wishes. :D

    Hi Mary. Sorry you're not feeling well. The chances of you having a brain tumor are incredibly low. Headaches are very common. Are you drinking enough water? You could be dehydrated, even if you don't feel thirsty. Hope you feel better soon.
