Only 13 and extreme brain tumour fear

Edited , 2 users are following.

for a while i have had health anxiety now, and i get extremely worried about my symptoms and immediatly think i have cancer.

Lately, over the past week or so i have been extremely worried i have a brain tumour. my symptoms are the following-

.on and off headaches throughout the day, sometimes a dull pressure, sometimes sharp shooting pains

.tingling, shooting pain and a weak feeling in my left arm, and and a slight twinge in my back with my left foot tingling

.i have been maybe a bit more irratable, but my mum says this is puberty

.neck pain which often turns into a headache

.my eyes don't feel aligned

.vertigo (had that from a young age but lately become increasingly worse)

.facial tingling, especially on my nose

i worry day to day about these symptoms and cry a lot as i'm so scared i have one and that i will die. My mum doesn't think i have one and says its health anxiety, but i'm genuinely worried. Just looking for anyone in the same position or any reassurance. These symptoms are kn and off throughput the day, and i feel like i have new symptoms each day. i have a doctors appointment booked so i can talk to him about it, yet i'm so scared he will send me in for a brain scan and then i will know i pretty much have one. Any replies would me much appreciated as i really cant go on like this 😦.

    Hello, I just wanted to check how you were doing. Any updates on your situation? I also wanted to let you know that its okay to be scared and its okay to be worried. No matter what happens live each day to the fullest. No matter what happens even if you are the healthiest guy, everyone will succumb to death one day. Make sure to rest your eyes and take a break from your online classes. Drink a gallon of water a day. Make sure you sleep over 8 hours. Look after yourself. Wishing you the best.

    Enjoy Life, You only have one.
