And you have reassured me also!!!!

I just don't get it, I have never had anxiety come out in my head, upset tummy yes, headaches no,  never ever really had headaches! The last year has been a stressful one, I am hopeful that the headaches are easing, but scared to say it out loud in case they get so much worse! Although I do get some kind of head sensation everyday, but I hate these rush feelings in my head, I hate the feelings inside me of perhaps nausea or just some horrible feeling that I struggle to explain. I feel lightheaded and sometimes jittery, my legs feel odd, my insides, the dizziness, its just horrible and I hope the doctors are right! Everytime I get a new symptom I get scared again.

Wonder how long beta blockers take too work - scared I won't make it till next Thursday when I am back at doctors! :(

But what if the doctors are wrong and everyone is just waiting for me to have a fit or pass out or something.

What happens if the beta blockers are easing the headaches and therefore I don't know if they are getting worse????


Can I beg for an mri or bloodtests?

Beta blockers would not ease a headache caused by brain tumor. They WOULD help with headaches caused by high blood pressure. Tumors cause headaches by pressing against existing structures in the brain. You would also likely have dizziness, nausea and perhaps other issues going on.

Epilepsy is marked by seizures. If you aren't having seizures, you likely aren't epileptic.

Now I have woken up this morning - with a cold, it was coming yesterday. So I have bent down to get some clothes for washing and had pain all over top of my head.

I have sniffed, coughed and sneezed this morning and during so have experienced a painful head pain and some pressure on top of head and the back of my head- so is this my cold or is it a progressing headache?????? Indicating brain problems???

It's probably just a cold. Haven't you ever felt headaches during a cold?

Yes you are probably right, it is probably beause of my cold, but you see this is what has become so frustrating and upsetting as I try really hard to wake up and be positive, the beta blockers I believe have helped the anxiety symptoms, but I'm still having headaches and because of this, my worries come back because the pain and sensations in my head are still there! So if this is purely anxiety how long do I have to go on like this?????? Because this is what stresses me out and makes me feel like crap waiting for the next pain and waiting for the next scary sensation in my head and this is what keeps the brain tumour/anuerysm/epilepsy and any other fear over my brain alive!!!!!

I understand where you're coming from absolutely. But when the next pain happens you need to tell yourself "this is simply anxiety" and really believe in it. It's a chicken/egg situation. Anxiety creates more anxiety and it's never ending if you let it.

It sounds to me like a sinus infection. You have sinuses behind your eyes, above them and on top of your skull. An infection will cause pain (acute sometimes when bending over) as well as dizziness, nausea, ear problems, drainage, stuffiness and headaches.

Of course, I'm not a doctor.... would probably be best to ask him/her.
