Please someone give their advice?!?

Posted , 4 users are following.

So since the end of July I have been having head issues. The pressure is only my left side and two weeks ago I went to the doctor and he told me he thinks I'm having tension headaches. He prescribed muscle relaxers and physical therapy appointments. I went to 1 PT appt and found out it's a $35 cover fee every time and I can't afford to go or the other sessions. They gave me a sheet of neck exercises to do daily. I was so worried about a brain tumor but my doctor says I don't have any of the signs and it seems like it's gotten a lot better since I've gotten that reassurance from him. It's been two weeks since the appt and the headaches are still there. I've had a couple days where I had no issues and it was such false hope that I was getting better rolleyes I'm trying not to worry bc my husband just thinks I need to let it be bc they are chronic headaches. But im trying not to be scared and worry but my dr said if it doesn't stop to go back n see him. But I already owe a ton in dr bills and idk where to go next? Any advice? Should I pin it down to what my dr said and leave it be even if they don't stop? I'm scared to leave it be if it's serious but I think my symptoms would've gotten worse by now if it was serious. The only symptom I have is head tightness/pressure.

    Do you experience head movement (pendulum) like side by side? Do you also experience pressure after you ate? How about pressure at back of your eyes. Is it periodical?

      Hey Lori I know you'd rather hear from someone else but I just wanted to say this , I was thinking like you saying if I just could have a MRI or ct scan I'd be able to relax but even after I had the MRI I was still convinced something was wrong in my head and that they missed something , because its all mental , and another thing I wanted to ask you did you Dr do any neurological test on you

      He just checked my reflexes, blood pressure, my eyes n ears and my heart. He told me I had no alarming signs of a possible tumor. I know the more worrying I do the worse it could get with my head but it's hard I just wanna know I'm okay

      Yeah I wanted to know because that's also what my primary doctor did alsonamd said the same thing sonwhem.they do that they can tell that's why he didntbsend you for a MRI , I believe your just fine its just anxiety believe me these headaches I get are beyond horrible and scary very very painful at times along with the other sensations of numbness and tingling and throbbing and pulsating so I know its scaring the daylights out of you because it still scars me and I had the MRI

      To be honest its really not needs those little test your Dr did on you are to check for tumors , and you were fine , and actually even if you had the MRI , you'd still think the doctors missed something and you'll still think the same things your thinking now , so its a waste ! We are all in the nightmare together unfortunately but its all.anxiety
