I am a 19-year-old boy since the last six months. I am feeling physical symptoms like a tight band wrapped around my head anytime, tightness and pain in the neck, ringing ears, stuffy nose, sneezing, upset stomach, bloating, gas, back pain, eye strain, red eyes, mild headaches above eyebrows, tense muscles, sudden chills, shivering, sometimes sweating, dry mouth, nausea, weakness, constant feeling of having a big disease like a brain tumor, cancer. I had done MRI brain a few months back and the report was normal. But after I again start worrying that I have got a brain tumor after MRI.
I cannot concentrate on my studies. I am anytime worrying. Please convey me that how much time is needed for a brain tumor to grow. Does it grow in a few months? I have spent a lot of money on the scan reports. Everything is normal. Please convey me.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Your brain MRI is perfectly normal, so we can completely exclude any possible brain tumor. In my opinion, your symptoms are compatible with a tension-type headache, which is a benign type of headache related to psychological stress. I recommend performing yoga and regular physical activity.
This MRI was taken in January month. So, can we exclude brain tumor? Does it not grow after January? How much time is required to grow? Please convey me. Can I be relax about serious disease?
Are you sure that it does not grow in little time? How much time does it need to grow?
According to you, is it not a serious problem?
Are not the symptoms I mentioned above serious? Please use your all experience of neurology and check again all the symptoms. Can I completely be relax?
What is the reason for ringing ears, tightness around the head anytime, dizziness, dry mouth and heavy feel in head and mild headaches?
Can anxiety causes this chronic fatigue syndrome? The dizziness does not occur permanently, it occurs sudden sometimes and two or three times in a week. And, my vision is also little weak. Is this a problem to worry?
In your medical science experience, had you seen any patient with the same condition? I frequently have mild headaches in day. This is also related to stress or anxiety.
I could not concentrate on my study. Please help me. Sometimes sensation in the head also the reason?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
I have seen a lot of patients like you in my daily practice and there is no reason to panic. Your last MRI is enough to exclude any serious medical conditions.
The pressure on your head is related to psychological stress, including the strange feeling and headaches. You have difficulty in concentration because you are always thinking about your fears (brain tumour, serious medical conditions, etc.,).
Coming to this point, I recommend practicing yoga and meditation. Recreational sports can help too. If this situation persists, I recommend consulting with a psychologist for psychotherapy.
