Please help me , anxiety or brain tumor??

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi everyone I am a 14 yrs old student and I am from Hong Kong (sorry for the poor English)

Recently I suffer from some strange symptoms and I worry that I have a brain tumor.

I remember around Nov I studied very hard for my first term exam , and few days after the exam begins I feel unwell and I worried that I have ALS.

At that time I became extremely tired and I just want to sleep all day and also I have speech difficulty and headache for all day long. (Now they're gone)

After that everything was fine until a few days later my muscles started to twitch and my leg and hand become numb.

Now the symptoms remains and more new symptoms appears.I'd like to list them

-Hand numbness

-loss of appetite(I only eat twice a day since yesterday sad

-headaches (it happens sometimes for few minutes)

-tired all day

-Don't want to do anything

-forgetting things easily

-sleeping too much

-lump in throat

Please help me , I am really worried that I've got a brain tumor. Or just anxiety due to my first term exam? But I wasn't really worried about it. I start to become anxious after those symptoms occur. So is that I am having a brain tumor instead?

    I am really worried about it. Please help me.

    I doubt its a brain tumor. Maybe stress if you been up at night then it could be due to that overstressing will give you a headache.

    Hello

    i am sorry you have been so unwell. It is most unlikely you have a brain tumour but to rule it out see your family doctor as soon as possible. It is more likely to be the stress around your exams, always a worrying time.

    I wish you well and your English is very good!

      Thanks for replying me . Today I feel much better since I keep telling myself to stop checking my body parts and think about am I going to die or other horrible things that I worry the most. But still a little bit of appetite loss and I slightly feel a lump in my throat . Hopefully everything will be fine soon.

    Oh you have got yourself in a state haven't you. Firstly I would like to know where your parents are? At 14 you're very young to be studying without parental support. Secondly I would like to tell you that your symptoms could be indicative of many different conditions apart from brain tumours. If you are registered at a doctor's surgery ask an appropriate adult to make an appointment and go with you for a consultation. If you're not registered with a doctor's surgery you can go to a minor injuries unit or even A&E at a hospital if you are worried. Please keep in touch, I'm here to talk to you.
