Hi. I am 30 years old. Ever since I had my daughter three years ago I have been having really bad anxiety about dying. The latest is a brain tumor. Yes I know how rare they are. I went to a GP last week, he did the nuerological exam and looked in my eyes. He seemed to think I was okay. I told him I've had a headache in the same place on my left side of my forehead for about a month. I also have neck pain, probably from poor sleeping positions, but I also read it was a symptom of a brain tumor. Along with headaches I have had a metallic taste in my mouth for about a month. I do have 4-5 cavities that need to be filled. I told the doctor about the taste and the headaches. He didn't seem too concerned but ordered bloodwork. All results came back normal except the kidney function, which was slightly low. He said it could be due to dehydration. I'm going back in two weeks to get another test to see if it improves.
I know I have anxiety, I suffer from PTSD, when I was 19 I woke up to my boyfriend dead next to me. He overdosed and died in his sleep. My anxiety about dying has been terrible since that. But since I've had my daughter it has been overwhelmingly worse. So I get a headache sometime in the morning, usually not right away. As soon as I notice the headache it gets worse, sometimes I get a tingly feeling on my head and behind my left ear. The more I think about it the worse it feels, which makes me think that these are all in my head. I've taken ibuprofen but if I continue to dwell on the headache then it doesn't help either.
Can someone please help me calm down, this constant worry is affecting my ability to be a good mother, I feel terrible because I sit and Google my symptoms and then feel terrified all day long.
