Terrified I have a brain aneurysm?
« on: March 02, 2014, 10:25:16 PM »
Hi, everyone! According to google, what I'm having is "ice pick headaches", a sharp pain on the top right (occasionally left) side of my head with a lingering ache sometimes. Despite what I'm reading this is still terrifying me, I keep getting panic/anxiety attacks about the possibility of it being a brain aneurysm or tumor. The pain doesn't even happen that often, yet I'm still really scared. I'm only 14, no history of them in my family. I use the computer far too often so I'm used to regular headaches from it, but not this kind. I'm also under an insane amount of stress that I'm working on removing but there's no "quick fix" for it at the moment. I have fibromyalgia as well which leaves me tired and my mind foggy. All these things combined are making me freak the hell out, not gonna lie.

Don't worry, I have a doctors appointment, but in the meantime I'd just like some reassurance? Earlier today I pretty much convinced myself I was going to die at any moment. I know I'm only making myself worse by worrying so much, but I can't help it. Go easy on me, I'm just really scared and need to hear something that'll help me calm down about it. Thank you so so much. Have a nice day friends.

I get those sometimes as well. Sometimes not for months then several days in a row. I worry about aneurysms too since my grandfathers side had them. Although I don't think that's what we have.

Welcome to anxietyzone. I have actually known 3 people who had brain aneurysms and if you had one
odds are you would not be typing on this forum, as you would be in the hospital.
