I have suffered with health anxiety for over 2 years now. I have started with pain mainly right temple and of course convinced it is a brain tumour. I have worked myself into such a state I feel sick, lightheaded, shaky faint etc. Dr checked me for neuro signs ok and eyes were also checked but I am so afraid everytime I feel a twinge.
Can anxiety make you feel so ill. I feel like my left arm and leg are weak but dr says they are not it is a perceived weakness. The pain in my temple is not really a headache but a tight pressure superficial sensation and my neck hurts.
Please anyone else with this I am always running to the dr and paying for expensive tests over other scares I have had chest abdo pelvis ct, mri lower spine ultrasound abdo etc etc in the last year. Dont want an mri as I am so claustropjobic and the last one on my spine really blew my ears and gave me tinnitus. My dr says it is not the answer anyway, if I could just forget about a brain tumour.
