Hello, for the last 8-9 months, I have been suffering from anxiety. all started when my Dad got sick and went to hospital. I spent 6 months going in and out visiting. Then we got the news that they couldn't try anymore treatment. That's when I started getting my physical symptoms. He sadly passed away after that I've been thinking I have a brain tumour.
I don't know if it was because I spent everyday for six months going in and seeing so many people sick and dieing from cancer. I've been to my GP about the symptoms, she knew straight away that it was anxiety. That was about a month ago now.
My symptoms are:
1. Tinnitus (ringing in ears)
2. Weird feeling in head ( a mix between dizziness and head pressure)
3. Slight headaches every now and again
4. Blurred vision in one eye ( usually comes and goes)
All these fears started when I googled my symptoms ( I know..I shouldn't). That's when I saw it could be a tumour. I then did more research and found how rare they are ( especially that I'm only 16) but I still keep thinking it is one.
I know I should trust my doctor, but..Well, I think everyone here knows how it is with anxiety. I have not asked for her to send me for any scans, as I know it's highly unlikely.
p.s, my symptoms went when I first joined the gym, which made me realize how stupid I was to think tumour ( because brain tumour symptoms are usually always constant and everything else severe) .I'm sorry, I'm rambling on here. Lol! Another thing my doctor recommended was to talk to someone I trust .But I'm not really that type of person, Sometimes I just wish my body would deal with this normally( by crying, which I haven't done much of).
Anyways, hope to hear peoples opinions. Oh and I'd like to thank people who commented on my last post, you have all been really helpful.
Thanking you, Jack
