Possible brain tumour?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey guys, I would much appreciate your advice towards my situation.

Im a 18 year old female with severe health anxiety, but recently i have not been able to distinguish between real and ghost symptoms;

I am usually derealized and depersonalized but these symptoms are driving me absolutely crazy

My symptoms include;

- blurry vision, mainly right eye but sometimes left eye too

- head tension, not severe but noticable

- constant fatigue

- body numbness occasionally (could also be to do with dpdr)

- extreme brain fog

- eye pain, mostly right eye sometimes left

- dull headaches at base of neck

- ice pick headaches

- morning nausea

Do you guys think this is sinister? I really need help as i dont know whether i would be bothering the doctors or not, its driving me mad. Ive booked the opticians for this saturday morn to get my eyes checked. Im really scared and its ruining my life; please help.

    Hi, the best thing to do is to talk to your GP. I would recommend having your thyroid values checked. Thyroid disorders can lead to all sorts of symptoms including brain fog, etc. Some patients with episodes of depersonalization are in fact hypothyroid.
