  1. Back Cysts?!

    As a massage therapist I have seen this kind of thing before often, and to my knowledge it's never progressed into something serious. I see lumps, bumps, spots, and everything you can imagine and nothing that has ever turned into something to worry about. I'm not saying you shouldn't see a dermatologist but I also wouldn't worry that it's something serious!!
  2. New worry

    Thanks holls, just worried because I've never had a headache that felt this way before on the top of my head like my brain is burning.
  3. New worry

    Hey guys, a new worry hit me about 2 hours ago and I'm freaked out. I have this burning sensation in my head, feels like my brain is on fire and I've been getting hot flashes on and off lately. Also have a sore spot on the top of my head that won't go away and have had on and off pressure behind one eye and sometimes headaches that have gotten better. Finally I googled the hot head feeling and saw the word aneurysm, and I am losing it. Anyone had brain aneurysm fears??
  4. New symptoms

    So last 2 weeks I have some brand new symptoms that I'm sure are neurological. Random headaches on the right side of my head with a sore spot right on the top right side. The right side of my face also feels swollen and pressurized especially behind my eye and I have tinnitis (ears ringing). This has all been on and off with varying levels of being present. This morning I woke up with a headache and the ear ringing which I have heard is a sign of cancer/tumor. I have been spiraling so much lately that I can barely eat I feel sick all the time. I just had a visit with my dr last week for a general check up and didn't mention anything. I have an opthamalagist appt Monday and I'm hoping they will refer me to a neurologist as I've had a condition since birth that makes it hard to tell if I'm having neurological problems by looking at my eyes (which usually you can). I just feel like I'm losing it thinking about this constantly. Should I just go to urgent care? What if it's something that cannot wait til Monday?
  5. How do you calm your anxious mind?

    Wondering how your MRI went??
  6. How do you calm your anxious mind?

    When I read this I thought I had wrote it, I had to double check this wasn't my post haha. My left side feels different then my right, not numb but less sensitive. Usually it's my arm and leg but today I'm noticing it in my face. I had a ct scan last year and have an upcoming MRI. When I have talked to my doctors they don't seem to be as worried as I am but I have all but convinced myself there's something very wrong. there's a couple things that work for me sometimes, this ones a little odd but I sit and focus really hard on one part of my body (maybe my foot or a finger) and see if I can make it feel abnormal like tingly or heavy or weak. It reminds me how much control I have over my symptoms. When it's cold outside I'll go out for a bit till I'm feeling chilly and that takes my mind off of whatever symptom I'm obsessing about. Or I'll run up and down the stairs a couple times until I feel winded for the same reason. Kind of wacky but anything that stops me from obsessing over one specific thing!
  7. Weird speeches

    Hi guys, I was on here a couple weeks ago worried about als or something going on with my brain. The last couple days I have noticed that when I say certain sounds, it almost sounds like I have a lisp. Especially when I say s or c starting words or sounds. If I sit and focus I can say them fine but when I'm having a conversation they just sound muddled. Of course my first thought is als or a brain tumor and I'm freaking out. Nobody has noticed it yet but it's sure it's only a matter of time.
  8. IIH or ALS??

    I am having bad als worries right now. Obviously hoping you don't have it, and the fact that this is a regular worry on here is in your favor. If anything the people on here are such a great suppport system and I think they can reassure you much better then I can
  9. Great to be back! %100 positive I have als

    You guys have no idea how much I love you. Thank you for the reassurance I really need it. My left leg feels so odd it's just making me go crazy. Talking to people on here about it is a lifesaver.
  10. Great to be back! %100 positive I have als

    Something is definitely off because my left leg definitely feels different then my right. Again not necessarily week or numb but different. Not sure what that could be and not sure if my mind could go so far as to make that up. I do truly appreciate all your responses and it has helped a bit but I tend to go through bouts of anxiety that last a couple weeks usually and I am in a constant state of panic. This time it seems all too real and I just don't feel like it's my anxiety playing tricks on me. My mom told me I sound raspy on the phone today that has put me right back where I started. I have heard that als can change your voice
  11. Great to be back! %100 positive I have als

    I am a 24 yr old female by the way with bouts of very high anxiety, moderate activity level.
  12. I have had als fear in the past but today I am convinced. My eyelid has been twitching on and off for about two weeks and have even felt a little tightness on that side of my face. The oddest symptom I'm experiencing is my left side feels like it's not as sensitive as the right, it's hard to explain. It almost feels like I've lost feeling but not all the way. Everything works fine as I've been constantly moving every toe, every finger to make sure. I have been poking every inch of skin to see if I can feel it (which I can just not as much as the right side) But I have noticed there's certain things that I can do faster and easier with my right foot and toes then I can with my left. My throat is also tight on and off and yesterday someone asked me something and I thought my mouth wasn't going to work to answer. I am totally spiraling right now, doing all the regular anxiety stuff like realizing I'll never have children or travel or have a full life. Who knows how much time I have left. I've had the fear before but I don't remember being this bad, and I don't remember having this weird phantom limb issue (I can't figure out how to describe it it almost feels like my left arm and leg aren't mine but they work fine)

  14. Has anyone gone through this?

    Thanks for the answers guys! I do not know for sure if it's really my liver, but my anxiety has been telling me it is. I also read online how unlikely it is that I'd have liver pain so young but I don't know what else to think and I can't seem to shake the idea. I'm not so much worried about losing my social life because I am aware of things like mini golf and dinner parties, however it would be a little tough to convince all of or even some of my friends to forgoe the things we've done and loved every week for the last 3 years. So naturally this worries me. I think the hardest part for me is I can't feel if this is a real concern or anxiety playing tricks on me. Or if my liver anxiety is now so high that I'm missing why my side is actually bothering me and it could be a serious health concern?
  15. I drink quite a bit. Sure sometimes to deal with my anxiety but mostly because I'm 24 and my friends, family, and husband all engage in activities mostly involving alcohol. For example you can find me at bar trivia and bar bingo once a week (my absolute favorite thing) usually a beer tasting on the weekend or a bonfire, house party, etc. I love these things in my life because they keep me involved instead of at home anxious. This last week I began to have a swollen and painful feeling in my right side. My first thought was probably liver damage because of the drinking. I somewhat ignored it and had a regular weekend. A couple days later it was worse, I did a little google homework and found that people that often drink can get fatty livers (I am overweight compared to my friends, which could be why they do not have issues). I am currently paying off two er trips and multiple dr visits (thank you health anxiety) and so even though my instinct was to rush to the er I knew I couldn't. I've gone 4 days without drinking because I am so anxious that I've done irreversible damage. I'm scared because I'm already so depressed, probably partly because I'm weaning off alcohol but mostly because I've already missed my favorite bar trivia (you have to drink to play) a friends birthday (on a party trolley) and then tommorow I will miss bingo. These things keep my sane. I'm to the point where I don't know if I'll be able to get out of bed tommorow to go to work. I know a lot of people have drank to ease anxiety, has anyone ever experienced liver or right side pain? Did you stop drinking? Or for those of you that have drank a lot and had to quit, how did you feel after? I don't know if I can lose my favorite activities, but my anxiety isn't letting my go for fear of liver failure pls help
