I know there have been many , many posts about this worry, and it really isn't common. Although I just need some reassurance/ advice.
I am an 18 year old female, and the horror about a brain tumor has been with me for almost 2 weeks now.
Here are some of my symptoms:
-eye "halos" when looking at light sources, especially at night
-Floaters, all day every day 24/7, If i'm in a room and its sunny, i have to close the curtains because the sun hurts my eyes and i see floaters. I see them in class when i look at the white powerpoint slides
-I am extremely tired. I've cut out caffeine, drink more water , and get enough sleep but I stay fatigued ALL day and am ready to sleep at 4 pm!
-I've missed my period, last time i had it was November 27th... im usually very regular and i am NOT sexually active
-Constant nose pressure at the back of my nose
and just general malaise, i cannot focus on my courses, im a first year science student in university. I know i am anxiety prone, but this all very frustrating. My parents are tired/worried of me complaining over the phone (i live in dorm) and i've shown the campus doctor, who isnt too concerned. I took a blood test, and my iron levels are VERY low, they have been in the past, so im taking them again. My ferritin storage was 5, and it is supposed to be really high. My B12 level is 194, which is the lower end of normal, so im taking pills for that.
I know this is just a lot of information thrown out. I just need to know it'll all be okay, im starting to get really depressed. And i just dont know what to do now, Im isolating myself from my friends who dont live on dorm because i dont even feel like texting them, its like im a different person. What do you guys think? If youve read this far, i really appreciate it.
