Posted , 2 users are following.

So I went to doctors to ask for something to stop these headaches she started prescribing ibuprofen until I mentioned I'm 34 weeks pregnant and then she was like oh no I can't give you them lucky you said well duh sat there with a huge bump anyways I told her all my symtoms sharp head pains get worse when coughing sneezing ect and feel they are gonna pop paracetamol isn't touching it sometimes my eye sight goes green or pink and I don't like bright lights mainly so she asks about stiff neck which I don't have then goes on about have I any neaurlogical symtoms well I haven't accept I do have twitching in face mood swings severe ones and extremely tiered all a sudden she says it's highly unlikely to be a brain tumour ,?? I never mentioned brain tumour then she says brain tumour and pregnancy don't go together it's very unlikely then says touch wood and actually touches her desk ??? She freaked me out so bad so hear tonight I'm sat here with sharp head pains twitching lip and cheek and I thought I'll Google and bam it says brain tumour or anyrsm ect and now my anxiety is on a high this time not because of myself because of what the actual doctor said sad

    I am sorry to hear about your head pains. Being an anxious person myself, I can advise you worrying doesn't takes us anywhere. It just creates fear and panic.

    Please consult a medical specialist again.

    Take care

    In a about five to six weeks you will give birth and hopefully most of this will calm down. pregnancy can effect people differently and can cause all weird things. Eat as nutritionally as you possibly can and be sure to take the pre natals so the baby is properly cared for and are you.once the baby is born and a couple of weeks go by see how you feel. At that point  you can go back to the doctor and ask for scans and take whatever meds she gives you. She knocked on wood as a superstition, she shouldnt have but she meant nothing by it. Wonder if the baby is just leaning in an annoying poisitions pressing on different nerves or organs. Hopefully after the baby is born you will look back and laugh and can tell the little bundle of love these stories.
