  1. It’s been about a few months since I’ve been on this website. The past few days haven’t been too awful, but I’ve noticed that I’ve had some bad neck aches, I got a massage about a week and a half ago, and it helped but only for a short time. I feel as though the neck pain goes up towards the bottom of my skull. I constantly havw the worry that I have a brain tumor or a brain bleed or something. I’m too scared to go to my doctor and get an MRI, because I’m afraid of what might show up. What do I do? I see my therapist and do CBT once a week, and it does help and I feel extremely safe and comfortable when I am with my therapist. I don’t want to keep living this way where am always in fear that my mind is in danger. Please someone put me at ease and tell me I’m not crazy for thinking this way. I have no other symptoms of a tumor or bleed but what if I’m One Of the few who don’t show them. This thought is always in the back of my mind.
  2. I’m so sorry you’re feeling this way today:(
  3. Must not be bacterial, I’m sure it’s just a virus! It will pass! And yes I know How it goes when our brain takes over with the panic thoughts.
  4. Shan, I feel You hard on that one. The past week was hell for me and I was Dealing with a sinus infection and horrible panic and jumping to all sorts of conclusions about what could be wrong w me. I went To my psychiatrist 2 days ago and I feel 1000% better, had some med adjustments and was put on an antibiotic for the sinus infection. I also Suffer with the ringing in the ears, it is known as tinnitus and it’s very common in people with anxiety or stress. It will pass in time, and I’m sure your allergies aren’t helping! Don’t jump to conclusions, it will get better I promise! I’m living proof that a week can make a huge difference.
  5. Thank you this makes me feel better! I know It’s just so hard not to google when you’re so fed up with feeling the way that you feel!
  6. I’ve been feeling so off the past few days. I’ve noticed my right arm has been feeling rather tingly but not necessarily weak or paralysis or anything like that, I have Also had a slight headache in and off on the right side of my head/upper neck. OF COURSE I googled Bc I just Couldn’t help myself. And I’ve now convinced myself I’ve got all the symptoms pointing towards brain bleed. Even though my motor skills and functions are fine, I’m not having seizures, I’m not having detrimental head aches, and I’m not losing coordination. What is going on with me!!!

    Thank you Angelica, it’s just so annoying when I am A bit anxious and then start creating all of these symptoms because I’m thinking about the possibility of them coming on ya know ?
  8. The past few weeks I’ve been feeling much better and not having too many panic attacks until 2 days ago when they started back up again. I’ve noticed a ringing in my ears that’s been persistent but if I watch Tv or am talking with someone I’m able to ignore it, if it’s quiet and I focus On it it drives me nuts. I’m trying my hardest not to google because I know Where that will get me. Anyone have any input on ringning in the ears and anxiety??

    Hello all. My name is Maddy. I’m 19 and about 2 months ago I was at work when I had a strange “wave” got though my body, my heart rate immediately went up and I began to sweat and couldn’t gather my thoughts properly. My arm felt tingly and I began Worrying that I could Be having a stroke. I went Into the ER, they ran an EKG, blood test, urine test, and it all cam back normal. They chalked It up to panic disorder and generalized anxiety. I still felt off for the next few days and like I was Not in control of my thoughts and my mind. I went To follow up with my primary care doctor, as I was Scared there was something we were missing. She examined me thouroughly and didn’t find anything wrong, she sent me to get blood work done to see how my lipids, thyroid, cholestorl, etc, all we’re. They all came back perfectly normal. I had No appetite for days and my vision felt slightly off. The best way I can Describe it is like I was Constantly high and experiencing this weird out of body experience. I made An appointment with a phsychiatrist near by, and she diagnosed me with a panic disorder, and generalized anxiety as well. I was Prescribed Zoloft and currently take 100mg daily, and clonazepam .5mg twice daily as needed. About a week and half of taking the medication I sarted noticing results and feeling much better. I was No longer waking up to a panic attack and increased heart rate, I could live out my days relatively normally. I started seeing a therapist and doing cognitive behavioral therapy with her and so far it’s been helpful. Within the past 2 days though I’ve been feeling quite awful again. It is very discouraging because I’ve been feeling good for about 2 weeks or so now, and I’m scared that I’m starting all over again and that I have To go through this all again. I’m sorry for the lengthy post I just want to be as detailed as I can with you all. Not to mention that I have A constant fear that this isn’t anxiety and that these symptoms are something else and I’m worried that they could mean I have A brain tumor or something like that. I made The mistake of googling brain tumor symptoms and other things and got myself deep into a rabbit hole and started thinking “holy s*#t!” These are all my symptoms what if their mimicking something more serious such as a brain tumor. I get Slight headaches from time to time but nothing seriously major or horribly painful. Consciously I know That it has to be my anxiety. Subconsciously it Is so hard for me to believe myself and the facts in front of me. I cant Get this persistent thought out of my head and it’s causing me more and more panic attacks. Has anyone else been here? I’d really appreciate it if y’all took the time to read this lengthy post. Thank you all. -maddy
