I could really use some helpp....

For the past close to 3 weeks ive been experiencing pressure headaches followed by neaea sometimes. I went to see my doctor 4 times about me being worried its a brain tumor. Each time she did a physical and neurological exam and said confidently its NOT a tumor she also looked into my eyes. She said that this is due to anxiety. I cant stop thinking about if its a brain tumor or not and its driving me crazy. The doctor said she eould give me a ct scan but she doesnt expect its a tumor at all. I want to believe her but im still obsessing about it. Would she have caught a sign of a brain tumor when doing the exams and looking into my eyes? Please help and explain in detail if possible id really appreciate it.

Re: I could really use some helpp....

i have had the same thing 2 times in my life now. 6 months ago i had such pressure in my head it felt like it was going to explode, for like 3 weeks. now i've had daily headaches especially behind right eye for i month. went to the opthamologist 3 days ago, and i told him i was convinced i had a tumor pressing. he asked if i had double vision, i said no, he told me to follow his finger with my eyes, did that fine too i guess because he wasnt alarmed about anything, like suggesting i get a ct scan, so i'm in the same boat as you. what can he actually see? because i'm really freaked out too
