well I may be the biggest jerk (or some may think so
) for saying this but I JUST don't think herbs and vitamins FIX anxiety or that the symptoms of anxiety is caused by vitamin deficiencies.. Lots of people will go to the "adrenal fatigue" stuff and then find out that that isn't what is going on either. SURE there may be a small % of people who have all kinds of crazy symptoms because their b12 or d3 are low or they have "adrenal fatigue" but really the problem with the VAST majority members here is ANXIETY. Anxiety not brought on by deficiencies in vitamins or "adrenal fatigue" but by genetics, upbringing, traumatic childhoods, current environments, personality, high stress lives. I do understand the desire to cure all of this craziness we feel by swallowing a pill. The world is really into instant gratification. We want it NOW. however, that just isn't going to fix this stuff.
Pituitary tumors are usually benign. Many women find they have one when they can't sustain a pregnancy. the reason why she found it wasn't that she had no symptoms, she did. those tumors generally affect people in just the way you describe. They don't do some of things you believe all tumors do. I don't really understand your logic when you say: she didn't even think she had one......??
btw-- YOU ARE NOT experiencing symptoms of a brain tumor. That is your interpretation. Problem with your interpretation is that it is being filtered through an anxious mindset. Anxious minds are not thinking clearly.
I have several links on my profile. three talk about anxiety and how I think it affects people. the 4th is a list of common anxiety symptoms. If you opt to read them, read the responses too.
