Brain CT...
« on: June 13, 2014, 12:11:29 AM »
You guys, I'm freaking out!! I had a CT of my head today and they told me my doc with have the results by tomorrow but in the mean time, I've basically convinced myself that it's a brain tumor. I've been having headaches for a week now. They're pretty much all throughout the day, sometimes goes away for a bit then comes back. Not responsive to pain killers at all. It feels sort of like a tension headache...but it jumps all around my head. Sometimes it's more in the back, sometimes it feels like sinus pressure like right behind my nose and eyes. I even tried allergy meds and that didn't help either. I had a pretty bad anxiety flare up last week but I feel less anxious this week, just more stressed. It's just really upsetting me that nothing takes the pain away! So yah...I'm worried  :traurig001:

Breathe!

I think you are ok. I don't think it's a Brain tumor for one second. There is another person on here that just had an MRI done and she's waiting for her results too. I really think you both are ok! Remember, primary brain Tumors are rare.  And anxiety and other things, little things that is, are much more common!

That would be me. I too have chronic daily headaches - mostly on the back and sides of my head, sometimes pressure in nose. Pain in my neck. I had my MRI this morning and am just waiting for "the call" :-(
