Recently I've posted quite a bit about my fear of a brain tumor. The fear went away for about two weeks and now it's back but this time in full force! I'm scared these 'symptoms' might not be anxiety but actual symptoms of a brain tumor!
First off, trouble with vision. My eyes have a hard time focusing and there is a lot of pressure behind them throughout random times of the day. I went to the eye doctor last week and he told me my prescription changed (I actually made my eyes stronger by not wearing my glasses, though it seemed like it was worse). Tonight has really been bad because there are times when my vision is really cloudy, only in my RIGHT eye, in random spots. FREAKY!
Second, localized headaches. They are especially prevalent in the upper top corner above my RIGHT eye. My doctor suggested headaches but they're not that painful and they don't last long....thank goodness! However, still a headache, still a worry!
Third, creepy whispers that aren't actually there. This just started this week and it's creeping me out! I keep hearing 'Amy' and it's always right behind my left ear. Nobody is there and it's always when I'm either alone or working quietly. This one really worries me because I know that hallucinations have been known to be a symptom of brain tumors.
Fourth, feeling faint. Let it be known that I have never fainted before so I don't actually know what it feels like but I start to get really lightheaded and have the urge to either just sleep or fall on the floor. It's weird and I hate it!
Fifth, pain in right ear and right side of neck. This one really freaks me out. There is a lot of pressure in my right ear and it never gets relieved and then just the past two days I've had terrible shots of pain that goes up the right side of my neck behind my ear that last for about a minute. I know neck pain is also a symptom of a brain tumor.
Last but not least, twitching. No need to explain that one any further.
So sorry for the long post but I'm just not sure all this is just anxiety or the reality of an actual brain tumor. I am a 21 year old woman. Thank you!
