Brain Tumor ? anxiety? ???!

Ok well i have dizzy spell s in nervous situations and i have OCD. I just got back form a logn car ride but its a week later and my legs feel empty and liek there gonn abecome paralyzed but yet i can controll them as normal as i used to. But this really only happens when im not using them liek sittign down and stuff. When i don't think abotu ti also, i don't feel it. When i turn my head aroudn as far as i can i kinda get a dizzy thing. Im pretty sure i have a ton of anxiety over all of this and thinking i have a tumor. I feel a little twitchy. ( well kinda ) and i only get headaches when i sleep really late or sometimes i just get them. I think its been a week and thats really good for me. But man im always plugged up so much and whenever i first stand up i get this really pressure feelign in my head that lasts a couple seconds. I went to the doctor and he said it was a grwoth spurt. im only 14 so thats higly possible. ( but that was liek 5 months ago ) and i have to say i am in a huge spurt ive grown 8 inches in liek 4 months i believe. Yeah i just feel wierd soemtimes especially when im tired i feel extrmely wierd when i walk. Liek the ground oves soemtimes. And when im laying in bed when i wake up and just stare at something my eyes like pulse and move a bit when my heart beats. Hard to explain. Anyways im really active i ride my biek / motorycle and swim a lot. EDIT i added this at 1:26PM sometiems i also get goosbumbs or liek a gold chill on my leg or the left side of my face usually i alway sget them on the left side of me. But i have gotten them on the right side before.

Re: Brain Tumor ? anxiety? ???!

Hi Chickenx5,

It sounds like you need to go to your family dr. Tell him all that you just said. Maybe he can refer you to a psychiatrist, they are not that bad. I would have gone to one, but my insurance will not pay unless I am completely nuts! I go to a rheumatologist too. That might help you also with your physical problems.

In between seeing drs. try deep breathing. Breathe in for 5 long counts, and then breathe out for 10 long counts. Do this at least 5 times or more. Think good thoughts. Like, about things you like to do. Like, imagine you are at the beach or in the mountains, or floating down a river. These will relax you and help you to forget about your other problems.

Hope this helps. Wannabe

Re: Brain Tumor ? anxiety? ???!

ChickenX5 - please dont worry about things like Brain Tumors - ive been there, and the worry sends you mad! I had quite bad sinus problems for a year or so, which gave me a real array of symptoms ranging from brain fog, to dizzyness, fatigue, imbalance, vision issues, allsorts of things. I absolutely *convinced* myself i had a brain tumor, and wasted *so much* time online researching symptoms, treatments, support groups and things like that - im not joking........ i made the doc do so many blood tests etc.

In the end, it got to the point where the doctor decided the best solution would be to send me to a specialist who, in turn, ordered an MRI for me to prove i was clear.

The specialist also told me that contrary to popular belief, you dont get 'mild' brain tumors, the symptoms are typically quite severe, and quite unusual - they are also very rare - especially in young people.

From my (albeit limited) knowledge - there's nothing there which you described which would concern me about a brain tumor, we all feel a bit funny sometimes, we all get "headrush" on occasion, and get random twinges, and pains, and sometimes dont feel ourselves - but, if you become compulsively aware of your body, you will simply make yourself feel worse.

RELAX, CALM, FORGET IT! Please!
