I have been scared that I have a brain tumor for about 2 months now… I have seen three diffrent doctors and all of them have said that there is no way I have a brain tumor. All three of them did strength tests, reflex, light in the eyes, and follow the pen with your eyes tests. I had a CT scan of my head about a year and a half ago and that came out normal. About a month ago I was getting really bad headaches that would wake me up in the middle of the night, i haven’t had those anymore. When I do get headaches every once and a while they start sometime in the night and will last until I go to bed the next day. They are one sided (right side above ear or on top of the center right side of my head) and pulsating with light and sound sensitivity. I have been getting double vision when i look at text on a LCD which i don’t think I had noticed had before (I saw an eye doctor after getting this and he told me that I was at low risk for Glaucoma and I had astigmatism in my left eye but he didn’t seem to worried about the double vision thing. I also asked him if my optic nerve looked swollen and he said it looked fine). I constantly feel like i am stumbling over my words and my thought process has slowed down. I do have a bad problem with controlling my health anxiety and stress levels.
On a good note I am still able to play my drums and guitar with my band. I am able to do push ups and lift my two year old little girl up so I dont think I have strength issues.
Can health anxiety cause me to have these symptoms or does it sound like i do have a brain tumor?
Also forgot to mention that I am a 22 year old male in decent shape. I have asthma and allergies. I do smoke but hardly ever drink and I dont do any type of drugs.
