I am new to this and apologise for my long post, but I am becoming so scared that I have some horrible illness or a brain tumour and need some advice or support from others who may have experienced the same things.
It all started at beg of Aug, when I was getting mild but dull headaches on the right side of my head, sometimes they would ease other times they would stay all day. Anyway I am an anxious person and do worry a lot, I was talking to a friend about my money worries, whether to change my job and apply for another, my lad starting secondary school and finishing my final degree assignment when I was struck by a real sharp pain in the top right of my head! I instantly felt sick and became worried that something was going on. I went to out of hours doc he said it was a virus with sinus troubles too, that didn't clear up, kept getting really bad headaches that could either start upom waking or develop through the day and they did hurt along with regulare stabbing pains in the same spot or flash pains across other areas of my head.
so I have been to a further 4 docs, all telling me its anxiety, I was given amititryptyline which I am taking a small dose, I have experienced moments when my head feels odd, then my heart goes crazy, I sweat, feel sick and dizzy then it passes. Doctor said they are panic attacks. So over the last 4 days I haven't had any stabbing pains in my head, but I have felt tingling in various areas of body including hands, top lip, tip of tongue and then today goosebumps/tingling on back of head with a feeling of instant nausea!
The doctor has told me he can send me for and MRI to ease my worries, but I don't know what to do. I have also read that brain tumours can cause anxiety symptoms!
What do I do? Is it just anxiety and do I ride it out or go back with my newer symptoms?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
