  1. It’s been awhile! Life has been rough the last 6 months, I had a family member get sick and pass away in a 5 week time frame and it was horrible. Due to covid I was the only one in the hospital with her for the entire time. I’ve had a hard time with coping and was set up with grief counselling to help me cope and heal but due to stress and lack of self care, I now have high blood pressure. A good day for me is 151/95, a bad day puts me into “emergency categories” I ended up seeing my dr who did a 24 hour monitor and prescribed me Telmisartan 40mg. I know I have to take it but I’m terrified to! I was stupid and googled the side effects and freaked myself out 🤦🏻‍♀️ Has anyone taken this medication? Or any blood pressure medication? What can I “realistically” expect?
  2. I currently have a benign brain tumour, I’ve never had headaches with it, a ton of other symptoms but not headaches, and I’ve never had a seizure. I think seizure depends on location. Hope you are feeling better 🙂
  3. I get this on my arms, currently have it in my right armpit, for about 6 weeks, sometimes goes down to my bicep and forearm. It’s uncomfortable! I honestly don’t know what causes it, but I’ve had it come and go over the years and honestly, I think I have a pinched or trapped nerve somewhere. Hope you are feeling better soon!
  4. Yep! I have acid reflux and have woke up choking on vomit. It’s disgusting! I’m on prescription meds for my heartburn but find when it’s getting bad to the point of bile in my mouth, baking soda and water (in a shot glass) is the quickest fix to calm it down.

    Covid arm

    I didn’t have anything more severe than I had with the first shot, if anything, symptoms were less and COVID arm went away a bit quicker. You will be fine! Just make sure you move your arm around after your shot and ice it to prevent the redness and swelling 🙂
  6. When mine is really bad I drink Eno, it’s the only thing that helps it. It’s baking soda and water, essentially. Tastes horrible but it works for me. Talk to your Dr, you may need a med change!

    Covid arm

    I had Covid arm after my shots, lasted almost a month, icing it helps! Nothing to worry about at all 😊

    Foot pain

    It sounds like you’ve aggregated some nerves in your foot! I’ve done the same thing, try searching stretches for plantar fasciitis, I find these stretches help with the heel pain, and walking on you tip toes can cause something called Morton’s neuroma, it’s an inflamed nerve in the ball of your foot that causes a numb or tingling sensation. Massaging the top of your foot in between the toe bones (not sure what they are actually called) seems to help.
  9. I get these same symptoms when my acid reflux is bad. I ended up needing prescription medication because pharmacy meds didn’t help at all. The flutter sensation made me cough continuously, it’s the worst. Hope your are feeling better
  10. Thankfully mine is benign! It’s a pain and the symptoms can be crazy and scary, but knowing it is benign brings a ton of comfort. I’m well aware of “danger” symptoms that make my tumour an emergency. Fingers crossed I don’t see that day!
  11. Thank you! For now my neurosurgeon is monitoring it with MRI’s every 6 months. It’s location is in the centre of my brain so surgery will only be an option when it starts causing more serious issues. As of now, my symptoms are managed fairly well and I’m doing good 🙂
  12. I currently have a brain tumour and very rarely get headaches from it, lots of other symptoms but headaches are rare for me. sounds more like a sinus infection to me. Hope you are feeling better!
  13. I live in a very small city, population 14,000. In the last week we went from 0 to 600 cases. I have stayed in as much as possible and I’m super cautious but I’m freaking out. It’s spreading like fire here and seems unavoidable. Due to my asthma and BT, I have to go get tested tomorrow along with the hubby to make sure we are not a-symptomatic carriers. My biggest anxiety trigger is feeling stuck or trapped, the last 5 weeks have been pure hell 😒 just needed to vent I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe!
  14. I’m currently living with a benign brain tumour, was diagnosed a little over a year ago and the symptoms you are describing are none of the symptoms I have or have experienced. The headaches I get, nothing will help. If muscle relaxers help you, chances are it’s muscle related. Your tongue and numbness sound like possibly TMJ, clenching your teeth is very common with anxiety! I hope you are feeling better!
