    My pupils are different sizes, I've got one eye worse than the other, it's nothing to worry about if you've been checked out. I also get the head pains, it's a symptom of anxiety. It happens even when you're not having an attack because of the adrenaline, anxiety takes a hell of a lot out of you! I'm constantly anxious at the moment, haven't had a panic attack in a week though and it's mainly thanks to this forum, so many people going through the same, there's no way they could wrongly diagnose so many people is there? read people's stories on here, it's really reassuring. If you had a tumour you'd likely know about it!

    no,you are not wasting docs time.that is what they are there for.Dont worry they are well compensated.also yes I have thought of having a brain tumor.also other worries that turned out to be nothing.such as heart problems from anxiety.now I compete in sports .I still get the idea of cancer everytime I see a pimple or bump.but I have lived through so much of these ideas they dont weigh very heavily anymore.I remember one time I stopped paxil abruptly.I didnt know a sie affect was feeling of mild electrical shocks and my brain would hear an internal zap.I though ,well thats it .I am dieing for sure this time.but I didnt.I hope you can relax .there are some good relaxation exercises on this page under related information.they work for me and for years now.I hope you tell your docs about your hallucinations.
