  2. Brain tumor fears!

    Thanks - had to go back to the Dr today for a blood pressure check from last week, BP is still slightly high but nothing concerning - he has though referred me for a brain MRI scan....WTF - really anxious and crying about it all now! he would not refer me if he did not think this was sinister

  8. Brain tumor fears!

    I think she could have but have booked an eye test as apparently it can be detected through a test as the back of the eyes might look swollen etc.... see what they say
  9. Brain tumor fears!

    Thank you for your reply, its a horrible feeling in my heads, my Dr said a brain tumor would normally present with the headache being much more severe to the point you want to bash your head open for relief....I am not there yet lol.....also she said I need to get my eyes tested for something that might be pressing against them, this really freaked me out.....she looked at my eyes and said they look fine but cannot get to see right at the back of them.
  10. Brain tumor fears!

    Thank you so much for your reply, makes me feel a little better, the headache has passed from the forehead to the temples now....feels like they are being squeezed together grrrrr I refuse to take painkillers as it is just masking the issue
  11. Brain tumor fears!

    Hi all I am going to just come out and say it - I think I have a brain tumor! I have never suffered headaches in my life and for the last 1-2 weeks I have had this dull pressure tight band feeling around my head headache if that makes sense? The type of headache you get when you have been crying for a long time, this is what I have all the day..... I do hydrate and I do try and not stress about things however I have HA. Can someone please try and talk to me about this because I have been in tears crying about dying from this tumor in my head. I have been to the Dr yesterday and she says its a head cold or sinus/allergies...WTF, I am not sneezing or bunged up.....she said my BP was slightly up but nothing to worry about and not connected to the headaches..... I really do not know which other way to turn.... Thanks all

Breathing feels like cold air & my throat is tight then the wheeze around the bottom of my throat starts Breathlessness when climbing stairs Chest/muscular pain when straining I hate feeling like I am dying all the time and I have lung cancer.......(horrible to say) I know but that is how I genuinely feel! Back to the Respiratory consultant on Jan 8th and DEMANDING a ct chest scan!
