For like a month I worried about brain tumors or brain cancer. That went away 2 or 3 weeks ago but came back when I started getting tension headaches again. I dunno what to do anymore.
My head just generally hurts at the top. It's an on and off pain but it feels like a pressure on the top of my head. I've had it most of today, probably since I'm stressed. I've been up 10 hours - I woke up at 7 and it's 7 - so obviously I'm gonna be sleepy but my first thought was I was gonna fall into a coma soon. I remember yesterday I was afraid to fall asleep.. I awoke this morning and within 5 minutes had a headache. It felt like stress but that worried me. Like 2 hours ago I was laughing at something and felt really happy. My brain instantly worried it was dying and this was the death endorphins kicking in.. Then my mood got bad and my headache came back.
I've been having a runny nose lately and it's probably due to the air conditioner but my brain thinks it's cranial fluid.
The side of my nose has been hurting, along with my forehead, and I get worried if it's random pains or a tumor.
My vision seems normal but sometimes I think it's vaguely off. I can't say how.. Not exactly foggy or blurry but..?
I've been getting hot lately but I don't know if it's genuinely hot - it's in the 40s and 50s - or they're heat flashes.
My throat feels tighter than usual and my appetite isn't so good.. I'm probably overly stressed.
I felt off this afternoon. That generic sick feeling but no fever or anything.
My ear ringing is back.
My nose is dry again.
A few days ago I had at least a few icepick headaches but now I'm back to tension.
When I calm down and my headache lessens in pain, or it goes away, I get a weird sort of feeling. Like lightheaded but not really. I just sort of feel loose, almost like I've been under anesthesia.
I've had a cough. Maybe I caught a cold..
I'm not off balanced and, as said, my vision is fine. I'm not blacking out, my speech is normal, and my coordination is perfectly normal. Still I get worried because my head hurts horribly and the headache can last for hours. I'm not even in the mood to listen to music.
I had none of this in early January. Tumors don't progress that fast, right? Unless I've had it for a while and it's now showing signs, or if I had cancer somewhere else and it's spread.. But cancer can't spread that fast, right? My grandma had ovarian cancer, I noticed symptoms a year before the diagnosis, and she ended up fine. I've worried about ovarian cancer but my doctors think it's PCOS. I've had some mild stinging pains around the pubic area though and some spotting but no periods so I'm worried. I'm under 20, don't do drugs, am a virgin, and don't drink or smoke but my young age doesn't make me invulnerable to these things.
I've been telling myself I'm fine but the fear comes back each time. I've gone back to wishing I was staying at a hospital, just because it seems safer and they can do tests or give me medicine.
