First of all please dont google your symptoms trust me that only add to your aniexty even more & just enjoy your family & how it will help keep your mind off the things that frightening You. Dont give aniexty that much control over you if yoyr GP saying its nothing seriously wrong take that in. & if you feel better if u get a 2nd opinion then do that but dont drive yourself crazy thinking the worse.

Do not google! Worst thing ever. I've also had a pressure and headaches at the back of my scull for a week now I'm very worried about it and all my focus is on it which I think makes it worse. I'm pretty certain it's all coming from the neck and shoulders as in tension but us worries of course always think the worst. If your doctor said it's fine I'm sure it is. Hope you feel better soon xx
