Still scared of brain tumor
« on: January 23, 2014, 10:33:07 AM »
Hey guys. I am still scared I have some kind of brain issue going on.  I do not feel myself. I'm all foggy the back of my neck hurts and I feel out of it.  I have been feeling like this ever since last week. I woke up from a dead sleep with a bad dizzy spell and ever since then I have Google everything and I feel like I have all the symptoms.  I wake up every morning scared. I just feel like I can't function. My mind wonders like crazy thinking crazy things
  I wish I knew I was ok and that I'm just having my hypochondriac Issues.  Any help is appreciated.

Ok, I know me replying to this post won't convince you that you don't have a brain tumor, because I suffer from the same fear (amongst others), and even had an MRI. I still think I have one.

But, I can tell you that anxiety can make you feel like you're not yourself. Neck pain is just neck pain. Feeling foggy can definitely be anxiety, or just fatigue. And as for dizziness, well anxiety can certainly cause that, or even sinus/allergy issues.

Another thing... STOP GOOGLING!!! Seriously. That was the worst thing I could have done. You read the symptoms and they stick with you. Try to relax... what you described sounds nothing like a brain tumor, especially since this just started within a week.

When you woke up from the dead sleep did you sit up quickly? Getting up quickly can definitely cause dizziness, and if it only happened once it really isn't anything to worry about.

Been to an ENT to do basic tests for BPPV?

Extremely unlikely this is anything related to brain tumors.

Anxiety following vestibular issues is normal. You should see an ENT to check if you have BPPV, VN, or some other kind of inner ear issue. It could also just be anxiety creating psychogenic dizziness.
