8 month battle
« on: February 23, 2014, 02:53:13 AM »
About 8 months ago I started having weird headaches and vision problems, so of course first thing I went to was that I thought that I had a brain tumor. I seen a my doc and also an eye doctor and neither said they thought I had a tumor. Eye doctor said the vision problems were because of a astigmatism.

Time has passed and my headaches havent got any worse, probably have stopped coming around as often. My vision not worse.

But I have picked up facial tightness around my nose (kind of like someone is pulling on my skin), facial twitching and internal shaking. Also tinnitus which I'm sure that I have had for a long time but I never paid attention to until I started having these stupid brain tumor fears.  About all this I tell myself that its just my anxiety.

Question I have is if I did have a brain tumor, after 8 months something serious would have happened by now right? My headaches would have gotten worse?

And another question is about the anxiety, if the symptoms I'm having are anxiety issues, are they not going away because I'm focusing on them too much and I'm stressing about it all the time? Its been a while since the twitches in my face have been around.

I'm near sighted and have an astigmatism. My near sightedness isnt constant, usually just happens when I'm driving or without my glasses for a long time. Also have eye floaters
