Is this anxiety?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I was suffering from headaches for a few months, not to servere but convinced myself I had a brain tumour, anyway for the past few weeks I got really worried and suffered really back anxiety, had a few days where I couldn't do anything, couldn't eat, had shakes, dizzy e.c.t, went to doctors and they put it down to anxiety, and since I have been having an on/off feeling of falling,sort of in the back of my head, and neck muscles feel tight, also have headaches below my eyebrows, I can't stop thinking its a brain tumour, and whenever I'm thinking about it it gets worse, is it all anxiety or could it be something serious?

    The best way to convince yourself if you believe you have a brain tumor is to get a MRI. simple as that. If it comes back as negative, then most definitely it could be anxiety. It seems like this obsession has consumed your life and that's very common with people with anxiety. We won't rest until we know for sure or wake up thinking is it still there? The more we manifest it in our heads, the more it takes control of us. Don't lose hope. I've been there before and you learn how to control your anxiety. I currently going through something as well and been letting it take control of me but now I'm starting to push it aside and think positive. Lastly, reading stuff on the Internet is a VERY BAD idea ( most of the times )

      If its come back negative, then its most likely anxiety. You are probably on the higher end of the anxiety scale, where it reaches to panic attacks. I'm no doctor, but I do know what you're on about.

      Anxiety is not there because something is wrong, its because you feel like something is wrong which causes the anxiety to stay there.

      i.e I had an electric shock feel in my chest, and I was convinced something is wrong with my chest, so my anxiety scaled highly to almost panic attacks. Because I kept thinking something is wrong with me, anxiety will cause you to feel something that really isn't there. It's only because you convince yourself there is, which causes the symptoms to increase.

      I know its your body, and you know definitely feel convinced if there is something wrong, why won't people believe me. If all the tests come back negative, then you should believe in your specialists / doctors. I'd recommend to see a psychologist. It helped me heaps.

      Good luck
