so scared i have something wrong

well it all started back in august i was feeling really dizzy and had to go to an emergency care center and they diagnosed with inner ear infection and sent me home with meclizine
i started feeling much better after a few days

and then in january i started getting really dizzy again and express doctor said i had some fluid in my ear so she gave me nose spray/meclizine again and ear drops
said i was morre prone to infections since i have allergies and frequent sinus issues

well it's been about 2 months and i've had this pressure feeling in my head and some congestion and blood in my snot. it's never a serious nose bleed but it's usually tinged with blood
my legs and arms feel weak sometimes
i sleep a lot. i have been really fatigued lately and have been sleeping 9-10 hours a day
i have random spells where i start crying because of how stressed i am thinking about if i have a tumor
i get floaties and random black spots in my vision
my neck is killing me all of the time
i feel like i'm on a boat, not really dizzy just uneasy
my stomach hurts a lot
i get headaches but they're never severe it's more annoying pressure than pain
i also have some pain in my jaw

i don't know what's going on i'm scared i have cancer
i don't have medical insurance so i can't see a doctor

Re: so scared i have something wrong

mabye it will make you feel better to know i've gotten blind spots many times (2 weeks ago to be excact) my eyes will be fine then slowly i start to lose vision in one eye, usually off to the side, then it slowl progresses until i'm literally blind in that eye. then at that point i get a headache. i also alwayus have a tinge of blood when i blow my nose. not a bloody nose but just enough to see it. i also get stiffness and pain in my jaw i dont have a tumor. everyones different but i think youre ok. i know whats its like to be SCARED that something is wrong with your health. at the moment i'm TERRIFIED that i might have cancer.

Re: so scared i have something wrong

I've had similar symptoms to you like the uneasy dizziness feeling & some preassure etc. & i've been diagnosed with a neck muscle tension/injury. I went to an ENT specialist as the drs thought it was my ears too & he picked up the neck injury. I spent months fluffing around with tablets for inner ear vertigo which did nothing for me & in fact one of those tablets resulted in me getting extreme anxiety & feeling crazy, i think it made my symptoms worse (was like stemetil). I've had a couple of accidents which have resulted in whiplash to my neck but even if you havent had accidents it can still just happen through bad posture or stress or anything. I still get worried about serious illnesses even though i've had reassurance from about 7 different drs lol.

I also suffer with extreme health anxiety which is causing those thoughts, might be what you also have? iI'm still dealing with my neck injury & still get the symptoms but i'm getting physio for it & doing excercises as there is a lot of neck tension. Might be worth going to a physio & getting them to check your neck out

Re: so scared i have something wrong

You must not assume the worst of this, because you can make yourself feel a lot worse and even amplify your symptoms.

The fact that you previously had an inner ear infection sticks out to me, it may not have been cured completely and the infection could have spread to other parts of your sinuses or returned a lot worse. A lot of your symptoms are consistent with severe/chronic sinusitis and with an inner ear infection itself, I am not a doctor but I would eliminate all of these options before you begin to fear the worse.

I know you say a doctor is not an option but you should be able to at least seek advice from somewhere on what you should do, you cannot carry on worrying about this, you must seek some sort of medical advice
