So for over 6 weeks now I have had a constant headache/pressure ontop of my head and at the back of my head. I also have high BP now controlled with Propranolol.. oh and I'm anxious obviously, otherwise I wouldn't be here right?!
I have been so ER once, had an eye test and routine bloods, to be told I have anxiety and nothing more.
I obviously don't believe these results and I have decided I must have a brain tumour. I have also been feeling rather nauseous lately, even if I do take my Propranolol with food.. another symptom of a BT right?
I have tried Paracetamol, Ibuprofen, Co-codamol, Aspirin, Hot baths, Wheat bags, Heat Rub and tiger balm (I have tight neck and back muscles), a head and neck massage but I STILL have the headaches! I wake up without the headache.. for about 20 minutes.. then it reappears. I can rest, work, walk, eat etc and it makes no difference.
I have been referred for CBT and had my first phone session lastnight but in my head I think until I get the MRI results back, what's the point in talking about my HA when it might actually be that I have a BT and it's not 'all in my head'?!
So I have my MRI tonight at 4.40 and I know I won't get the results for a few weeks, but I am HOPING that if it was a BT they would rush the results through and let me know... here's to hoping eh?!
Sorry to babble but I am panicking right now as to what I will do if it is bad news and if it isn't, will this feeling go away... EVER?!
