I can't help but think I have a brain tumour!!

Posted , 3 users are following.

I suffer with gad and hypochondria but for the past 6 months I can't help but think I have a brain tumour and it hasn't been found! I've had blood work done and it's all clear and my doctor has assured me many times that I don't have one so why do I keep thinking I have one?? It's like I'm not going to accept I don't have one until I get ct scan which my doctor is refusing to refer me too, someone give me some reassurance please

    Rachel:  I would be willing to bet a pay check that you do NOT have a brain tumor...Brain scans are very expensive, and tumors take on a lot of symptoms beside headaches...I urge you to listen to what your doctor says, and put it out of your mind that you have a tumor...I can almost guarantee the symptoms will go away, and the thoughts of having one, as soon as you ignore them...HUGS.

    I'm exactly the same as you!! The thought never goes away, I wake up with the thought and go to bed with it. I've had numerous eye tests and doctors appointments but they will not give me a scan either! And like you I think that they haven't noticed it. Maybe ask if you can be referred to  pedriatocs ? Then they will give you a full check ove. Best wishes x
