    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.

    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

    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!
