Cant trust a doctor

A few days ago I went to see my doctor about my headaches. Actually I have spoken to 3 doctors now.

I can not seem to listen and accept what they're saying.

How do I just accept a doctor saying I don't have symptoms of a brain tumour? I have a lot of symptoms including headaches that come and go! I can even feel my head most of the time in some way at least.

Theres sooo many symptoms of a brain tumour and anyone could have it even with no symptoms. And since I at least have a headache that wont leave, it should increase the risks of me having one...?

But no, when I asked my doctor after the appointment why she wouldn't recommend a scan she just looked at me like huh? So I just thought ok I wont force it.

On my way to see another doctor now before my therapy...

Any tips on what I should do?? Can you get misdiagnosed by 3 doctors that says no you don't have the symptoms?? Should I just accept it? We have really good doctors here in Sweden so i don't see why they would misdiagnose but still.. brain tumour could give alot of symptoms.

It’s very easy to believe you have something wrong with you when these symptoms happening, but you should trust your doctor as you most likely do not have a brain tumour, it’s just your mind telling you that you have one. It all comes down to anxiety, so I shouldn’t worry. Try and tell yourself that you don’t have one and that you’ll be okay. You should feel better by repeating that to yourself.

Take care. ✨
