Okay, so I'm back. With fear of a brain tumor. Again. Of course.
Anyway, here's what happened. About a month ago I started having some cloudy vision that also came with localized headaches. I was still in college at the time, 10 hours away from home and completely freaking out. Thankfully, I had friends that were able to keep me calm until I went home for summer break.
Here I am now, back at home for break and I felt like I was doing really well. I went to the doctor because I needed a physical for my new job. I told her all about my fears and she just did a quick eye test, like made me move my eyes around and she said I was fine. She told me that a person with a brain tumor wouldn't be able to move my eyes around. She's a wonderful doctor and so I trusted her completely. I was still having some cloudy vision and achy headaches though, so I went to the eye doctor.
I went to a new eye doctor, because my old one is only for children, and he looked at my eyes and told me that the stuff that was happening was because of a change in prescription. I believed him as well.
However, recently I've been freaking out about it. I have started two new jobs so I know that has some stress to it but I am still freaking out. Here's what I have, as far as symptoms go:
-achy localized headaches
-not wanting to look into the light/wearing sunglasses all the time
-my lips have been twitching, meaning that they randomly like perse together and it's freaky because I have no control over it
-my fingers shake constantly
-my leg randomly lifted off my bed last night without me moving it with my mind, if that makes sense
If anyone has any ideas about whether this is a brain tumor or not I would be so grateful to know! The fear is literally taking over my life! It's especially awful because I work with children ages 3-5 every single day and I don't want to freak them out or have me like seize on the job and then freak them out because of that! Help please! So sorry for the long post but I felt like I needed to explain everything.
