Possible Cyst?
« on: August 24, 2014, 11:25:26 PM »
So a little while ago I posted this
http://www.anxietyzone.com/index.php/topic,93560.msg522255.html

And that bump is still there, it hasn't gotten any bigger or smaller
and as I said it's not rock hard but it's not soft either.

And I'm beginning to think that it might be a cyst forming?

Of course I was thinking tumor (it's on the right side and when I look in the mirror my right pupil gets a little bit bigger than my left????) so I'm like thinking that it's doing that because that bump is there (tumor or cyst).

I honestly don't know if there is a benign reason as to why that pupil would be larger. It's only when I get closer to the mirror, not when I'm further away from it?? So I don't know.

I have a doc appointment on the 4th but honestly I feel like I can't handle another day of not knowing if there's something wrong with me or not.

I'm trying not to freak out because I'm so tired of all the constant anxiety I've been having.

I've been having headaches on the left side of my head and the feeling of numbness on both sides of my face (not at the same time it's either one or the other) I also get it in my hands.

The bump thing doesn't really hurt to press on it and it's not exactly solid in it's position either.

I also keep smelling random like metallic-y smells. It's not constant just sometimes.
I don't know if those things go together but yeah.

The pupil changing only happening at a certain distance from the mirror makes me wonder if you have a weakened eye muscle on that side or something that can't see as well from a certain distance, hence compensating.  I'm not an eye doctor or medical expert, just a guess. 

The bump thing sounds like a cyst, yes.  Has your doctor given an opinion on any of these concerns?

Yeah when I went to the eye doctor a few months back he said one eye was weaker than the other but didn't say which. So that could be the issue?? I don't know.

And I haven't seen my doctor since these issues arised so I have to wait until the 4th until I can ask about it but it's driving me up a wall that I don't know.

I'm really afraid that it's a tumor.

I want to go up to the hospital but my mom won't let me.

Your eye doctor would've seen signs of a  tumor during your eye exam.

I love your mom.  I just have to throw that out there.


If you want to feel better, quit looking for 'abnormalities'.   You've told me that you are trying to get better.  Honey, I am just not seeing it.   :winking0008:   You are doing all the reactive stuff.  reactive stuff = increased anxiety. 

Your tasks today, if you dare to do it:

1.  take two walks around the block.  listen to the birds, stop and smell some flowers.  or listen to your music.

TWO times.  I don't want to hear, "I can't", btw

2.  choose an activity--- puzzle, bake, see a movie....

3.  log out of az, walk away from the computer.

4.  tell your brilliant mom  :happy0151:  sixpack gave you work to do.  tell her I want her to hold you to it.  she and I are going to make you, take care of yourself, whether you like it or not.  after a while you will do it all on your own because you will start to see that it works.


tomorrow, some new tasks will be added.  none of which will be logging on here to ask for reassurance.  you *may* log on, if you are here to to tell us the success you had doing your tasks.   at no time are you allowed to poke or prod yourself.  at no time are you allowed google crap.  at no time are you allowed to what if...



If you keep your mind occupied with decent things, over time your mind and body will be *allowed* to relax.  at which time symptoms will diminish and you will start feeling better.  from there you start working on the stress or issues that got you thinking and feeling the way you are feeling.

btw-- over time doesn't mean an hour or two or a week.  I am talking about several weeks to months of continued "good stuff"      I am not saying this will be a walk in the park--easy peasy.  you are going to have your beasty yammering at you.  however persevere and you will come out on top.  if you don't you will flop.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

little known factoid here on az,  sixpack makes stupid rhymes and sings obnoxiously stupid made up songs.  I got it from my mom and I have passed it on to my kids.

My mom said she loves you too. (Mind you, she was tearing up as well)

And that we are going to do it.
She's glad she has someone to help her convince me instead of me just freaking out some more and wanting to believe but still doubting because of my stupid beasty.

And I won't get on here unless it's to post about my success or get on to read tasks that I need to do.

Woo this is going to be difficult but I can do it.

I am pulling for you.    Just think how proud of yourself you will be when you come on here telling your success    :yes:   and maybe peeps here will be able to follow your example.


be careful I may get you up to walking 4+ miles a morning like me  :P


okay I am off to take two of my kids out to lunch.
