Reassurance needed please - tumour fears
« on: January 29, 2014, 05:10:32 AM »
Hi. This is my first post.

I guess I should start at the beginning. Back in November I woke up with severe neck pain. Nearly every movement was agony. I went straight to the doctor and they put me on anti inflammatories and painkillers. They did a blood test which came back all clear. After a few days on the medication the pain disappeared. A few weeks ago my right foot started to feel really uncomfortable then painful. I went back to the doctor who prescribed the same treatment as in November. He reassured me that the blood test from November were all fine. This past week I have developed back and neck pain which is also causing twinges in my legs and arms. I went back to the doctor on Monday and they are going to refer me to a physiotherapist as they think it is a mechanical problem.

I do get very anxious about things and starting from yesterday I was getting a bit of a headache and the pressure points on the right hand temple hurt when I put pressure on it. The headaches aren't really that bad at all but I keep having minor cloudy moments. I think I have a bit of a cold too. I know I should just relax and not worry but I can't help but think something serious is wrong.

Try to relax sounds like your muscles and your going to see a specialist so try to think positive. Tumours if your thinking about brain tumours you have fits, seizures, faint so having a headache is most liky just a headache especially if u are stressed and developing a cold. It's easier said than done to rationalise thoughts I thought I had mouth cancer last week which as passed but I'm now obsessing with vaginal cancer. It's so hard but you know it's anxiety otherwise u wouldn't be here right? So something somewhere in your mind does not fully think it's something serious. You will be fine! Welcome :) x

Thank you for your replies. It's more nerve pain than muscular which was what was worrying me. I know I have to stop stressing because I'm most likely making my headaches worse by being so anxious.

As a side note I've never really sought help or advice about my anxiety. I've always just tried to keep going and pull myself together. It's so reassuring to know I'm not the only one who worries so much.

Today the muscles in my neck are so stiff and have a headache again. I'm trying to stop myself from worrying about it but it's so difficult.

'Ineedtosmile' - did you post this on another thread somewhere. Hope you have found some reassurance. I don't know much about chest problems I'm afraid.
