    What do I do

    Guys Iím honestly so scared. Everyday I wake up and Brain Cancer is on my mind. Headaches in the morning. They come and go throughout the evenings. Iím nauseous right now in the morning. Sometimes I have a loss of appetite. I donít know what to do. I feel so alone and I feel like there is no light. This is the absolute worst Iíve ever been. Iíve lost a couple pounds too.

    Sorry to hear how bad your feeling, you say you have matching symptoms well you will because you are convinced you have this illness so the mind will mimic it, because you are reinforcing it by googling symptoms , you know yourself this is a big part of it, you need to get some help for your anxiety it won't get better if you don't work on it,

    When l have been it a high state of anxiety l have convinced myself l have all sorts of life threatening illnesses , l know it feels real but its anxiety get it sorted out and try and relax more take care xx

    I definitely think its important to get things looked at by a doctor if they are really bothering you. Its probably nothing serious but its good to get some peace of mind. The loss of appetite is due to the anxiety though. Are you staying hydrated? Not drinking enough can cause pretty bad headaches for me.

    Re: What do I do

    Iíve gotten a blood test and got a physical exam from my doctor a month ago. She found nothing wrong. I do have nasal congestion still and a bit of pain behind the ear. For all I know, I could be hyper focusing on my head too much and convincing myself the worst. (Which I am)

    Sorry to hear you feel so bad. I think youíve answered your own question, you definitely are focusing on your head far too much, i know because i do exactly the same thing myself but with me its my throat. If you can try & take yourself away from those constant tiring thoughts even if only for 10 minutes at a time, it kind of breaks the cycle of negative thinking & makes you realise that when you focus on something else your mind feels freer & a bit less panicked by it all. Take care.

    Fishmanpa,

    You have been a great help throughout the years and I canít thank you enough. I do owe you and everyone an apology for going through these cycles where I tend to remake similar threads without realizing. The reassurance always helps but I DO need to attain more skill sets to control the anxiety.
