    Should I ask for a Brain MRI?????

    The dry needling did help! I have another appt next week again. I’m glad it’s just allergies! I hope the allergy medication helps! Keep us updated on your progress!

    Let me know if the increase dosage helps at all. I noticed once when I got real panicky that my ear got super red and warm. I’ve been doing physical therapy for my neck and shoulder pain and it’s been helping. They tried something called dry needling today, we’ll see if it works. Hope you feel better! Hugs!

    Hi Leah, Hugs to you dear! Remember you do not have a brain tumor. It’s all anxiety. The more you think about the symptoms, the worse they get. Maybe have your dr up the dosage of the lexapro if you feel like the 10mg isn’t working for you. Keep us posted! Stay strong!!!

    Dizziness and Nausea again

    My dizziness has gone away. I went to PT on Tuesday and they are going to try dry needling for my neck issues. But I’m still worried about other things....sore spot in my stomach and now lower back pain. Maybe you need to have your dosage upped to 20mg? Don’t worry Leah. I know its easier said than done. hugs!!!!

    Dizziness and Nausea again

    Oh Leah! I hope you feel better soon! Health Anxiety does a number on our bodies. I can tell you that you don’t have a BT! You wouldn’t be able to function and you would have gotten progressively worse by now. Maybe have your dr put you on a higher dosage of lexapro? I feel like my citalopram isn’t working much either.

    Scared of Brain tumor (again)

    Hi Leah, just calm down and take a deep breath. Nothing good can come out of googling your symptoms, I know it’s easy to say and very hard to do. I’m guilty myself. I don’t think you have a BT. Things would have gotten progressively worse by now if you actually did have one. I still feel a little off balance and have neck pain that is causing sinus issues. I see a physical therapist for my neck tomorrow, hopefully that will help. What also helped me was talking to a therapist about my health anxiety issues, I did that a couple of years ago. Stay positive! You don’t have a BT!

    If it’s not one thing, it’s another

    Thanks! I know I’ve been swallowing a lot lately! I should pay attention to it and try not doing it so much.

    I have never dealt with GERD before. I was super anxious yesterday and as soon as I got anxious, the burping started......

    Thanks Leah. It just started out of the blue yesterday. And I’m sure I’m making it worse by worrying about it.

    Thanks lofwyr. I don’t feel anxious, but I must not be conscious of it. Anxiety sucks!
  12. I just can’t catch a break with this anxiety! Yesterday I started to burp a lot after just drinking out of my bottle of water. Every drink I would take, I would have to burp a little. And it’s back today....drink of water, then small burp after. I do feel like I have some indigestion after I ate a banana this morning. Of course my mind is thinking the worst....stomach cancer, esophageal cancer. Anyone else experience excessive burping like this?
  13. They are awful! And with us, we always think it’s the BT or some other sinister illness.
  14. Oh ok! I don’t have numbness, just a tingly feeling down the right side of my neck when I look down. I hope the injections work for you!!
