  1. I have hashimotos and unfortunately heart palps comes with the territory of thyroid conditions. I have been dealing with these heart palps for over 4 years now. I see a cardiologist annually nust to be safe. All my test come back fine. Unfortunately with thyrood conditions our hormonea fluctuate alot. It doesnt matter that your blood test come back normal the hormones are still all over the place and it cause palps. I have noticed my palps often come durong my time of the month and they go away. Try to stay positive, and dont dwell on them too much because it just makes things worse. Thyroid mixed with anxiety makes the heart race even more and palps are more often to occur.
  2. Get a second opinion...if your this worried and consumed with fear, and feel that you are not getting a complete analysis of your scans than you should look for a second opinion. I know with health anxiety the purpose is to be believe your doctor and what they say, but sometimes it doesnt hurt to be your own advocate and seek a second opinion. Once you get a second opinion and you are given the all clear then you need to really tell yourself that you are healthy and Ok and its Ok to trust your doctors. Once you get your second opinion you need to be Ok with the Dr. Response and go on with your life.
  3. Hey everyone...so I went to the ER because I guess my anxiety got the best of me. They said it was tension headaches that became a migraine. They then gave me some meds that helped with the headache. They also gave me a head ct and said that they found a probable 2.3 densely calcified meningioma in the left frontal lobe. The doctor said this is benign, and not the reason for my headaches, but that I need to follow up with a neurologist! to say that I am freaking out is an understatement. The headaches went away for awhile, but yesterday we got an email at work that we had our first positive covid case in the building and it caused a lot of stress and tension and now my headache is back. I am terrified I am going to die or something and leave my two babies behind. Any support? greatly appreciated! how are you feeling BirdieS? Anyone else has a meningioma?
  4. Thank you! how long did you have tension headaches for? was it on and off for weeks? how did they feel? where are the pressure points? Thank you again!
  5. Anyone pls help me through this?
  6. I have been having these headaches for the last 2 weeks. I had blood not to long ago and it was overall normal except for a little high cholesterol. My blood pressure is normal too. Im not sure whats going on. I have working on the computer for like 9 hours a day looking at two screens and not sure if its the posture or the constant computer screen causing the headache. Im freaking out a bit not going to lie since i dont tend to have headaches very often.
  7. Hi everyone! I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy with this crazy Covid virus. I have a quick question I have been having constant tension headaches for the last 2 and a half weeks. I am not sure why. I am a teacher and have been using my computer a lot and looking at 2 screens due to remote learning. It has not been easy. I have stressed with work and the constant changes. I also had a filling on my tooth due to a cavity (the headaches started around the time I got my filling and started to use 2 screens) I am very concerned about this headache, it is constant it feels like a tension headache in the front and back of my head. It feels like a tight band or pressure feeling on my head. I also feel it above my eyebrows. My neck feels tense, and to be honest I am starting to freak out! All I am thinking about is this a brain tumor? a brain aneurysm? something else serious? My husband and chiropractor said that my headaches are due to stress and tension, but why have they not gone away yet? I feel them everyday and it's frustrating. the only way i get relief is by taking some advil or tylenol. I mentioned it to my doctor and he said it's most likely tension. I am overwhelmed with fear right now. What if Im dying...please help me!
  8. Yes!!! Omg I'm so happy to read this...because I have been stressing out about this for the last 3 weeks. My left breast is my bigger breast and it is lumpier and has firmer tissues especially on the upper outer quadrant. It has been giving me anxiety. It has always been like this from what I can remember..so I not sure why its bothering me now. I think its normal since I have had breast ultrasounds in the past and they have said that some breast just have more denser tissue.
  9. Hi guys! I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time. I have a quick question...and not sure if it's normal. I have this part on my skin on my tummy that feels numb compared to the rest of the skin. I can feel pressure and some sensations but it does not feel the same as the rest of the skin. It is located on the left upper side of my stomach. I googled which I know I shouldnt and I got two answers one is MS...and the other is due to having skin over stretched due to pregnancy...but I'm not pregnant I had my baby 2 years ago. So I am not sure if this is a thing that I have had this whole time but never noticed until recently. I'm afraid to go the doctor due to his Covid virus....and not sure what to think? Anyone else ever experience numb parts on their skin? Starting to freak out a little. Thank you!
  10. Can lack of sleep really cause palpitations crying irritability tiredness, anxiety feeling of jitterness??
  11. No fever and pimple thing is pretty much all resolved. I dont go to sleep early because I get caught up wanting to watch my tv shows or put laundry away or catch up on stuff at home or work since I have two little ones, I dont get much time for myself. What could be triggering this anxiety? Anyone else feels like crying a lot and jittery and palpitations when they are anxious? I feel like I'm in a constant state of anxiety.
  12. Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted on here. I have been doing pretty good, but lately since Tuesday things have been rough. I caught an infection on my leg for picking on a pimple went to the ER got it lanced and on antibiotics...sounds pretty simple right. That's what I thought but ever since that experience I have been feeling off...heart palpitations, jittery, feel like my whole body is shaking and I want to cry over everything. I just want to be home and hide. This is not like me I dont know what's going on and I'm scared. I just had cardiac work up and all is good with the heart. I'm also very sleepy and I should mention that since christmas break Dec19th I have not been sleeping well at night, I think I get an average of 4 to 5 hours sleep or less daily. I always feel sleepy. Please tell me whats going on? Is this anxiety why??
  13. Hey everyone its been a while since i have posted. I had my baby 16 months ago, and when i delivered i caught this infection called endometritis, it was very painful and scary. It required me to be admitted for 3 days in the hospital. Flash forward to now...well since March i have had more cramping with my periods i went and got an ultrasound back at the end of march and all looked good. I recently had my physical and had a bunch of blood work done and all came back good. But i have been having this frequent urge to urinate and lower abdominal pain. I got tested for uti twice and it was negative both times, my doctor beleives that the frequent urge to urinate is anxiety related, and the lower adbominal pain is due to musclskeletal issues since my lower back hurts too. I see a chiropiractor and she agrees with him. I have had low back pain since i have had my daughter 6 years ago i blame the epidural. Somehow i keep fearing im going to catch another scary infection or i may have uterine or ovarian cancer due to the symptoms of frequent peeing and have lower adbominal and back pain. My doc sent me to get another ultrasound to ease my mind, but scared to get it done.This period has also been weird its all spotty its not a full on period. Please help me im stressing myself out and its affecting me badly. Could this be cancer?
  14. Thank you Nat1996! Yes it sucks it feels beey uncomfortable i feel bloated and just blah. Im not sure what to make of this. Dod you think the fact that i had a pelvic ultrasoind and all came back clear means that i habe nothing to worry about as far as ovarian issues?
  15. Thanks i still feel this full feeling in my lower abdomen...somewhat like pressure. I also have diarrhea a lot. Could it be ibs?? I dont know anymore this is so frustrating, and worrisome!!
  16. Hey everyone! its been a while since I have posted. I have been doing pretty well lately, mainly because I have been busy with my 11 month old and my 5 year old. Anyways I had my period about 2 weeks ago. One my period ended i began cramping, and i have been feeling a bloated, achy fullness sensation in my lower abdomen towards my pelvis area. I first tried to ignore it, but it has been persistent and it has been stressing me out. Then i began getting worried and the more i worried the more i felt the pain, and so i ended up in the ER. The doctor there ran some blood work and did an ultrasound, and everything came back normal. Thee doctor said blood looks good, urine normal, and ultrasound looks great. when i asked then why do i have this pain, the doctor had no answer..she said could be some combination of IBS (which i do have) and muscle exertion. she prescribed me some antibiotics in case it was the beginning of a UTI. I have been taking them, and i have felt a little better it has only been about 2 days and a half since i have started taking them, but i still feel this discomfort and this pressure feeling. i am very scared right now thinking ovarian cancer, colon caner, bladder cancer idk...has anyone had these symptoms? Thank you in advance !
  17. im still nauseous!!! Its worrying me I notice some days are worse than others, and i am trying to keep track of what i eat those days to cause that. I hate feeling nauseous and it triggers my anxiety..or maybe vice versa who knows. I had a stomach ultrasound done and everything looked normal. I have a GI appt. On November 6th...im kinda nervous and scared. I have been having this nausea on and off for like a 5 weeks.. its frustrating. I have IBS, acid reflux and gastritis...not sure if any of these could be causing the nausea. Anyone else out there dealing with this???
  18. Thank you Holls! I went to get the mammo and uktrasound all came back normal thank God!

    Nausea

    Hey Leah how are you! Praying your endoscopy goes well! Im so so i just pisted about how i still feel nausea but not as bad. Doc switched me to zantac said it works better. I have been stressed about this. I also found a lump in my breast and it has me all in a tizzy. Doctor says the lump is moveable and most likely benign, ut either way he is sending more an ultrasound of stomach and breast. Im hoping for good news for bothe of us. The nausea is getting a little better, ut unfortunately i have a sore throat and it makes me have a constant tickle and that makes the nausea worse ....im praying for good news for both of us.
  20. Hi so i have posted about feeling nauseous lately, well now i have a sore throat and that is not helping the nausea cuz i feel a constant tickle in my throat. To top it off i found a lump on my left breast ..went to the doctor and he said that it is kost likely nothing bad, because the lump is moveable, but i cant help but freak out. He sent for an ultrasound of the breast just to make sure. I have that scheduled for the 24th of October, he also sent me for a stomach ultrasound just to make sure the nuasea isnt due to a gallbladder issue. He most likely thinks that this is a acid reflux issue. Im very nervous and afraid not sure what to think....im already freaking out thinking the worse case scenario, and i feel so anxious. I have also been sighing a lot as if i cant catch my breath....is this anxiety related? Idk anymore i cry cuz i have to little ones to take care of. Please someone help me through this. I have a pulse ox and it measured my oxygen at 95 to 98 is that normal??? Mainly steady at 97. Oh i hate this anxiety!
