Okay, so I think I may have sunk to an all time "worry" low on this and need help
I've been having facial pressure/tingling since October-I've been told it's sinus pressure (although sinus ct was clear) and stress/tension.
At one point I was having tension type headaches every day. I was told it was stress, so started focusing on stress rather than brain tumor. Headaches are pretty much gone.
BUT...during one of my brain tumor google sessions a few months ago I came across "acoustic neuroma" and blew it off as I didn't have any symptoms. Unfortunately, I started wondering if my right ear was feeling fuller...and have been wondering ever since.
Is it possible to worry about a plugged ear to the point that it actually FEELS plugged but not really have one?
DH says if I had an ear tumor, I wouldn't be wondering if I had a plugged ear, I would KNOW something wasn't right.
But then I googled acoustic neuroma again, and it said when the tumor gets large enough it can press on facial nerves causing weakness, numbness, and tingling!!!!! I do have facial pressure and some tingling...could this be the reason?
So do I go to a doctor for an ear exam now and express my newest worry-that I think I've narrowed my brain tumor worry down to "acoustic neuroma?"
