Tomorrow, I go to the neurologist so I can get his opinion. I know there's a 99.9% chance I will need a scan, so I pray that I don't have to wait weeks to get a scan. My last semester in college starts on the 27th. I'm not sure I'll be able to function without knowing I don't have a brain tumor. I should not have looked up the term "palinopsia", seeing pronounced trails of moving objects/ ghost images of objects (whether I move, or the object moves). But I've read enough to have the mark of death painted upon me. As one medical article put it, palinopsia indicates a likely presence of an intracranial lesion. The only thing that's helping me keep my feet on the ground is watching cartoons from my childhood (The Real Ghostbusters) and xanax. For everyone else out there who has this paralyzing fear, know that I sympathize with your plight and my thoughts are with you.
