I think I have a brain tumor

i think i have a brain tumor. i could write a book but ill keep it short because i dont know if many people seem to respond. I also posted on the eye forum with no replies.

-last hear had head pressure and vision issues so was sent for mri. It was clean. Have an optic nerve issue and the ophthamologist follows me now.

-ANXIETY, especially health anxiety

--around November i had the same head pains like last year. got worried then reminded myself my mri was fine.

-started seeing floaters only when outside, mainly AM time

-told myself i was fine bc i didnt have double vision or nausea.

--then realized i think i do have double vision--only on up close objects. eyes have a hard rime focusing but once i focus, i can bring back to single image. Would that be how double vision with a tumor would be?

--been worried for month. Too scared to go to dr (very unlike me).

--opthamologist follow up went fine (pics of eyes, dilation, etc).

--still having vision issues---like if i look at the window, i cant focus on the window panes and also what is beyond window, only one ir another

--decided to test my balance. and now i can tell i dont have good balance with eyes closed

--after researching, sounds like spinal cord or cerebellum tumor

--neuro appt next week and im SOOOO scared of the bad news coming.

Any thoughts or feedback? anyone similar?
