I've posted on here a few times and can never get a response, but i'll try again anyway. The past month i have been worried sick about a brain tumor. i have lost a family member to cancer that spread to his brain, and was told all the horrific side effects he had by a family member. of course, they all stuck with me. i also saw something on tv about a girl with a brain tumor and was in the ER with cramping (i'm pregnant) and a lady had a brain tumor. All these things combined sent me into a neurotic turmoil. I was fine until 4 weeks ago and it all hit me. I was taken off my zoloft 7 weeks ago ( i tried to go back on and had a back reaction, tried other meds to no avail, now i have to go my pregnancy with no meds) and have relapsed into depression and anxiety. What scares me is that since i started thinking i have a brain tumor, i get quick sudden pains in my head that last one second and are gone. It is usually in one spot, on my back left skull. it almost feels like my hair is being pulled and isn't a terrible pain. it's all i think about from the time i wake up until i go to bed. i cry daily, many times a day, and have to hide it because i have a son. i am 14 weeks pregnant and can't even think about it, i'm so wrapped up in thinking i won't live much longer. i'm a mess. of course, my family doctor just left and i am reassigned, but to a doctor i'm not crazy about, so i have to find a different one. i did notice everything is incredibly tight, my shoulders, neck, scalp, ears, jaw (i have tmj) and i can't seem to relax my muscles. i see a therapist, but it isn't helping. my family is lost, they don't know what to do with me anymore.
