I think I have a brain tumour

Posted , 7 users are following.

I've been suffering from headaches and muscle twitches for the past 4 months. The headaches are sometimes sometimes stabbing pains, shooting pains or pains which last a few seconds an also just general aching pains. The muscle twitches are all over my body and sometimes I can see the twitching. I went to the hospital and told the doctor about all of this and he shined a light in my eye, checked my reflexes of my knees and other walking tests and facial movements. I'm worried I have a brain tumour. Does anyone else get this?

    CBT  will teach you that there is a switch in your brain that is broken it is telling you your in danger when your not,you have to fix that broken switch through therapy

    It is common to think you are ill with anxiety but it is all psychosimatic

    Honestly it sounds like you have low magnessium levels and an anxiety disorder. Theres many high magnessium foods or you can get like avacadoes, bananas..etc. or you can buy magnesium glycinate and follow  the instructions or ask your gp or doctor how much to take. Keep very hydrated as well. Stress does things inside of the body. Every adrenaline rush when its done depletes the body of magnessium, it ends up being peed out. So yes anxiety can do this, honestly it can do anything because the mind has a habit of validating anything you believe to be true via mimicing symptoms. You are not dealing with low level anxiety, this is an anxiety disorder they are not the same thing. Your anxiety triggers an extreme response in your body called fight or flight, its an intense reacton. You would react the same way if a lion was chasing you. So understand when you say how can this be anxiety, its a disorder and not plain ole anxiety.

    Hello Kieran,

    I am not a doctor, however, I do know two people who have had brain tumors.  They both had slurred speech, blacked out, had trouble writing..and being uncorrdinated when walking.  The stabbing pains in your head are called ice pick headaches.  I suffer from chron migraine disease.  I get twitching also, could be anxiety.  In my opinion I dont' think you have a brain tumor, but if you are very upset ask your doctor for a CT scan,  and go to a neurologist. Good luck
