So, ever since reading about the brain eating amoeba, I have been scared to death of it and its ruining my life. Last Tuesday, I got a drop of water in my nose and I immediately blew my nose to get it out. The day before I had been diagnosed with fluid on the ears that was causing vertigo ( I was extremely dizzy and nauseous and pressure on head) and then Wednesday, I hopped a plane to Florida. In Florida, I began to have really bad anxiety attacks to the point because I was worried about this pain in my leg, which I thought was a blood clot (ER visit for SOB visit confirmed not a blood clot. All tests including blood work came back normal. I started feeling nauseous all the time and could not eat at all (Dropped seven pounds in six days). I had pressure on my head, my ears hurt, and my neck was sore. Water touched/might have gotten in my nose again while bathing in Florida, because I was upset and crying while taking a bath and accidentally wiped my nose with wet hands. I am still feeling sick to my stomach, dizzy, my neck is tight and tender again today close to my shoulders, and I still have pressure on my head. At certain points I feel better, but I am still freaking out that I am going to die. The first thought exposure was last Tuesday and the following one have been a couple of days ago (I had another ER visit for the leg yesterday. I had a slight fever 100, but blood work was perfect. Doctor said he had never seen someone with blood work as perfect as mine.) Am I dying? Would my white blood count be up if I had an amoeba? Is this from my anxiety being so bad that it's making me sick (Haven't slept well in days and was having an attack almost everyday while in Florida)? I feel stupid about this, and my family is beyond annoyed with me, and keeps telling me I need to learn to control this, but it's so hard to control. I was on medicine for my anxiety, but that stopped when I switched doctors due to insurance and the new one is refusing to prescribe the meds (which I went off of cold turkey a couple of months ago). Someone please tell me I'm not dying; I'm desperate here; no one around me at home knows what it is like to suffer from anxiety and just become extremely annoyed with me.
