He's doing it because YOURE scared its a brain tumor. Keep us posted.

Exactly, he is doing a "therapeutic CT" for his patient's anxiety.  I don't agree with it but many docs do it.  If he were truly worried about a brain tumor he would have ordered an MRI.

I don't know what first med is but the second one is a motion pill and it's for dizziness. Will make you sleepy.
I had to put 100 down for my ct scan. I can't believe they wouldn't let you make payments.

I THINK you are in the U.S.?  If so if the nuero thought you had anything serious he would GET you the scan.  He'd contact the insurance company and work it out.

He put me on Haldol it's for like scizophrenia.... It says mental and mood disorders but I never heard of this in my life..... Says it helps to think more clearly, feel less nervous and take part in everyday life. Haloperidol

My ct scan was 1,455. It was of sinuses and top of head. Without contrast.

Do not take Halidol...that drug is out of vogue and definitely NOT for an anxiety sufferer.  You NEED an SSRI.  Contact your GP :)

The meclizine is an anti dizziness pill, often used for motion sickness.  The insurance probably wouldn't cover the scan since it's not for diagnostic purposes and he doesn't have a medical reason for it.  They don't like to pay for things without medical necessity.

Soaring,
 He wrote down Brain Tumor for the DX on the script. I am sure he would have pushed for the scan if he thought something was seriously wrong right?

He put me on halidol for my nervous tics and vocal tics that I have had for like 15 years. And a low dose can be good for severe anxiety and mental wellness. I read its better than valium.

You sound like me. I have a fear of same thing. I really do believe if he thought it was even a possible chance it was a tumor he would have not took any chances. He has good experience with those who do have brain Tumors. I wish I could sit and talk to one so it would end my fear and I even had ct scan. And I try to remember my drs knew my concern of a brain tumor and one said you worry too much. I'm surprised he didn't do a nuerological exam. My main dr did a small one and said my balance was a good thing! Brain Tumors are very rare.
