Worried Brain Tumor
« on: March 17, 2014, 04:29:56 PM »
Hi I am 21 YEAR OLD male and for the last 6 months have not been right. Firstly it started with a sinus infection, so the doctor said, although antibiotics didn't work. I've had severe brain fog for 6 months and has almost at one point stopped me from continuing university. I get strange not painful feeling in one spot of my head, left centre of head, partial lobe I believe, almost like a part of my brain is being pinched gently. This comes and goes and really worries me. I've also been twitching non stop all over for months, I've seen about 5 different doctor s and ha've all said anxiety, I have also been to the opticians 5 times and all said good. I went there because I have floaters and light sensitivity now and then. Lately I've been nauseous and worried stiff. I'm finding it so difficult to do what I'd normal y do, gym etc. Help please?Any one with similar symptoms or stories? Any facts  that will help me? I'm now on anxiety med, but I don't know if it's anxiety.
