Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Customer: Thankyou, do you think i have a brain tumour or something really serious?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Not at all.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I do not think its a brain tumour or anything serious at all.

Customer: How do you know?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Because you do not have any weakness or numbness and no other symptoms suggestive of a brain tumour.

Customer: I feel so so ill tho like i could die any minute
Dr. Shahzad MD :

I understand.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This feeling is because of severe anxiety and nothing selse.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

else*

Dr. Shahzad MD :

A brain tumor would not make you feel that way.

Customer: Really how would it make me feel?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

It would cause weakness or numbness in various parts of your body.

Customer: Is that in all cases?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes in almost all the cases or at least headache that is worse in the morning associated with vomiting.

Customer: I dont have a headache or vomiting
Customer: What can i do about this spacey ill feeling? I just cant shake it off and it really feels like im dying
Dr. Shahzad MD :

You will most likely require a change in your medication.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that the medication that you are on is not working as it should.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Regular follow up is essential.

Customer: Yeh i was on the doctors monday and tuesday this week and they told me it needed more time im back this wednesday
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes thats the right thing to do.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You will eventually require a change in medication as far as I am concerned.

Customer: What is institute for functional medicine?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Functional medicine means that the patient does not have any physical illness like a tumor or any illness medically but their symptoms are more so related to anxiety, stress etc.

Customer: Right just another expert on here told me to speak
Customer: to them
Customer: Said i may have low magnesium or coliac disease is this true
Dr. Shahzad MD :

HIGHLY UNLIKELY

Dr. Shahzad MD :

you can have these tests done but it would be very unlikely.

Customer: Ok, i just cant understand why one doctor says one thing and one another?
Customer: do you understand?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Well, they are just wanting you to have more tests. I read those posts just now.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

But that does not mean that you have celiac disease.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Celiac disease is very unlikely with all the normal tests that you have had.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Celiac disease patients usually have a low hemoglobin, low protein, low albumin, among large number of other abnormalities.

Customer: Aw right, ive never even heard of it before
Dr. Shahzad MD :

I understand.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Any more questions?

Customer: I think there could be anything at all possibly wrong but anxiety?
Customer: Do you think*
Dr. Shahzad MD :

This is what your mind makes you think

Customer: How can i physically feel so ill tho
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Despite of all the tests and numerous appointments with your doctors they have not been able to find anything abnormal.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Being physically ill or feeling ill does not mean that you actually have something like a brain tumor.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

We need specific things to look at when we are considering a diagnosis of a brain tumor.

Customer: So do you think it could be something physical?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

No, I do not think so, I think its all related to anxiety.

Customer: Can that make me feel so lightheaded and ill that i dont know where i am and feel like im going to collapse and die its that bad?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Anxiety can cause all that.

Customer: Thats 24 hours a day aswell?
Dr. Shahzad MD :
