Help with anxiety.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi I have had headaches and dizziness for the last three months, I have been to two GPs and one ear nose and throat specialist who all say nothing is wrong (they have tested me as well with moment tests and a light in the eye), I am currently in theropy with a clinical phycologist for hypochondris and experience alot of anxiety, both GPS and the specelist say it is anxiety but my mind keeps telling me it's brain tumors.so I guess my question is if it was a brain tumor would I have more symptoms by now or am I right to be panicking about "when am I going to have a seizure or when are the headaches going to become worst" I do experience panic attacks on occasions but can anxiety really mimic all these symptoms

      Thanks it's good to hear from people that are in the same nightmare of a boat as i am, it brings some sort of twisted relief that I am not alone. Well done for getting a handle on it it couldn't of been easy.

    Thank you, it wasnt easy in the beginning but it does get better' 1 day at a time. Anxiety took me to the pits of hell before I started to fight back, 24/7 symptoms dizzyness shaking stomach upset feelings of loosing control etc etc the list goes on.. all anxiety related symptoms. I can only speak of my experiences but id be glad to help in any way if i can.

    Anxiety definitely has your mind telling you all kinds of terrifying lies. Yes, that is what I mean. Lies. Every time my mind comes up with another fear, I literally tell it, often out loud, oh no you don't. stop that. It really helps me remember that what I am thinking isn't real.Give it a shot, it helps.
