Daily worry about a brain tumor!
« on: April 20, 2014, 12:05:22 PM »
Hi! For 2 months I have been having terrifying symptoms which Google told me meant I had a brain tumor.  Head pressure or a sensation primarily on the left side that is constant.  I used the standard white Apple iphone headphones only in my left ear at work every day for around 1.5 years so I am concerned about radiation creating a tumor.  I also get pretty nauseous periodically and my legs get extremely weak where sometimes it is difficult to walk.  I feel hazy and lightheaded like I am living in an altered reality.  My vision is awful.  I started wearing glasses 2 years ago for nearsightedness and now I can only see what's directly in front of me without glasses.  Everything else is blurry.  My ears always feel full.

I have read over the other brain tumor worries, but I can of course distinguish myself from them because I have way more symptoms.

CT scan of head, MRI w/ and w/o contrast of brain= normal.  Still having a hard time ruling out a brain tumor since my symptoms won't subside.  Also have had so many blood tests done I wonder if I even have blood left.  But they have all been normal.  Having a hard time imagining what else this could be?  I spend all my time online searching because I am consumed by this and I want to live.

[Schwarzenegger voice] It's not a toomah! [/Schwarzenegger voice]

If your tests all showed no tumor, you just don't have one.  What you describe can all be caused by anxiety.

I wear my headphones constantly, how would that have anything to do with radiation?

Thank you for your response.  I always felt headphones were harmless but I was streaming the radio online on my iPhone and didn't know whether I had been radiating myself after reading stuff online.
