| | health anxiety...advice? :(
Hello. I have major health anxiety, since around age 12 because my best friend died from a brain tumor. Now I feel as if everything wrong with me is some type of cancer or something serious. To get things started, I had a CT Scan in December 2010 because I had had an excruciating for a week straight. Morphine couldn't put a dent into it, but the CT came back negative. I have always had headaches since middle school. Im 19 and smoke, and I notice that some days if I smoke close together I get pressure headaches that last all day. Over the last couplenof days I have had those on and off, but since last night (when the headache had gone away) whenever I got up after laying or sitting I would get this throbbing pain on the side of my head that lasts a few seconds and then goes away. Could that be symptoms of a brain tumor? Can brain tumors grow within that time frame?
