DrK99 :

Hello, this is Dr K. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a Dr/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

DrK99 :

Hi and welcome back. I believe you had the pressure in your head before this.

DrK99 :

Not sure what weird sensations you are having in your hand, but yes, some of these symptoms do sound like they could be anxiety related. Sometimes when you have anxiety, normal physical symptoms seem much worse than they ought to.

Customer : Yes I know but I don't know how to stop it I feel like I have the symptoms of MS
DrK99 :

Your symptoms do not sound like MS to me at all. I would make an appt for a general check up as I suggested.

DrK99 :

Then consider seeing a therapist to begin cognitive behavioral therapy. You can learn to stop focusing on all your physical symptoms as abnormal.

DrK99 :

You may also need to start medication for anxiety

Customer : Yes I think so because my throat feels like its closing in .... I am booked in to have counselling
DrK99 :

I am signing off now as I am losing my internet connection.

DrK99 :

I will be back on in about a half hour

DrK99 :

I am glad you are booked for counseling. You are on the right track

Customer : I do wonder though why I feel like this I genuinely have pressure on my head sometimes I'm just watching tv it will come out of nowhere......
Customer : I have genuine symptoms
Customer : Do you not think it sounds like a brain tumour?
Customer : Like I get a shudder in my head and it moves left to right
DrK99 :

No I do not think these are symptoms of a brain tumor. They would not just come out of nowhere but would be more consistent.

DrK99 :

I think you will be reassured if you can have a good physical exam.

Customer : I know I can't help this
DrK99 :

Thats part of anxiety, but you can learn to overcome it, with help.

DrK99 :

In addition, you can rule out more serious causes of your symptoms.

DrK99 :

Good luck, I hope you feel better soon.
