If a person has a tumor would they be able to feel it? Like actually feel it sitting in their head.
I've had a constant sensation of something on one side of my head for the past a couple days...whether it's pressure or a headache or just a sensation of "something" on that side of my head or brain....but they're all very very slight. Most of the time almost undetectable, the other side of my head is completely unaffected, feels fine.
I've noticed in the last couple months that whenever I have a headache it's usually on that side and the other side is fine. I haven't had headaches everyday since then though, they've been normal and sporadic.
This morning I woke up feeling fine and then around 9:00 a I got a little headache it was gone around 10:00. I had a headache yesterday right about the same time, and I've just had the sensation for the rest of the day.
I don't have any other symptoms of a brain tumor that can't be explained by something else, and there's a plethora of other valid reason that can explain these feelings
The only other symptoms I have are a little dizziness and weakness...but I don't eat during the day and I have poor nutrition so that's probably how I should feel.
I'm completely obsessing over this, I'm freaking out. I think I'm a hypochondriac. I think I might have an anxiety disorder...I think the only real problem here is probably those issues, but this is really driving me crazy, I feel like I'm losing control of life and I realize this is completely irrational but I can't stop myself and this is not the first time I've blown a minor health concern way out of proportion to a life threatening situation.
Right now I want a cat scan more than anything...I feel like I can't have peace of mind without it...but considering I have basically 0 symptoms I'm pretty sure I wont get one. So considering my symptoms what do you think?
And I would really appreciate professional opinions about both the tumor and the anxiety.
