So basically, I’ve been having headaches for about a month now. Usually I will get headaches every now and then and migraines do run in my family. However, are usually don’t have headaches that last more than two days. And these headaches are different than what I usually experience. I’ll usually wake up with the pain and I often have nausea in the morning and sometimes throughout the day.
I also get the head pain when I strain or bend over. No of course when I ask Google or the Internet what this means they tell me that it is a brain tumor and with my anxiety, I naturally get worried. these are the tell tale signs of a brain tumor so I went to the doctor. When I went to the doctor, they noticed that my blood pressure was very high. This was very unusual to me and them because of my age. I am only eight teen years old and high blood pressure does not run in my family so neither of us could tell why I was experiencing this. So to my concern, they did agree to perform a CT scan of my head. The results came back negative and me being a hypochondriac, I was very relieved that nothing was wrong but I feel like I am not out of the woods yet.
Yes a CT can rule out a brain tumor, but me having high blood pressure is one of the top risk factors for a potential brain aneurysm which can cause the same symptoms that I was experiencing. A normal CT scan cannot detect a brain aneurysm so that worries me now. I’m not sure what to do really because I cannot afford another scan to rule out an aneurysm but at the same time I can’t keep living with these headaches.
