Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

yes, I am here.

Dr. David :

what questions do you have?

Dr. David :

how old are you?

Dr. David :

male or female?

Customer:

I am 27 female. What would be the symptoms of a brain tumor?

Customer:

U there doctor? Sorry to be impatient

Dr. David :

yes I am here.

Dr. David :

brain tumors are very different from patient to patient.

Dr. David :

some patients can have seizures, others have personality changes, or headaches which are the worst in their life

Dr. David :

others can have nausea, or stroke like symptoms

Dr. David :

like weakness on one side of their body

Customer:

I feel like im not on the planet so so spaced out like im not 100% conscious

Dr. David :

I see from your prior question that you have bad anxiety symptoms.

Dr. David :

excessive anxiety can cause you to feel spaced out and not 100% conscious.

Dr. David :

it can also cause brain fog and difficulty thinking clearly.

Dr. David :

you should talk to your doctors about medication treatment to help decrease anxiety symptoms.

Dr. David :

this could help your symptoms and could help you to think more clearly.

Customer:

I just feel the illest ive ever been i cant even describe how bad i feel

Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

if you feel very bad, you should get to the ER

Dr. David :

and talk to a doctor about how you feel

Dr. David :

and be started on anti-anxiety and anti-depression medications right away.

Customer:

I was on er 2 days ago with how im feeling

Customer:

They did loads of tests but couldnt find anything

Customer:

Do you think its a tumor or cancer?

Customer:

What do you think?

Customer:

You there?

Dr. David :

because it is apsyc

Dr. David :

because it is a psychological problem you are having.

Dr. David :

and not a physical problem.

Dr. David :

and you need psychological medications like sertraline or paroxitine to help decrease your symptoms.

Dr. David :

and also long acting benzos like clonazepam most likely to help decrease anxiety

Customer:

Do you think the hospital would if picked up anything physical?

Dr. David :

yes, the hospital would have picked up a brain tumor.

Customer:

Im already on sertraline have been for 8 weeks but feel worse than ever

Customer:

Even though i didnt have a scan?

Dr. David :

you might need a higher dose of sertraline or additional medications like quetiapine or clonazepam.

Dr. David :

what dose of sertraline are you on?

Customer:

Im on 100mg but im pregnant so they wont do alot with my meds

Dr. David :

you can ask your doctors about going up to 150mg of sertraline which can help.

Customer:

They didnt do a scan at hospital but did a ecg, blood tests, blood sugar test. A neurological exam, blood pressure. Would they have found summit?

Dr. David :

yes, they would have found something physical if it was there.

Dr. David :

your anxiety is out of control

Dr. David :

that is why you are worried

Dr. David :

you don't have a brain tumor or cancer causing your symptoms.

Customer:

Could it really make me this ill?

Dr. David :

yes,

Dr. David :

severe anxiety disorder can make you feel this ill.

Dr. David :

hello?

Dr. David :

Dr. David :

I have told you this before

Dr. David :

that you are not dying.

Dr. David :

and you have made me promise you are not going to die.

Dr. David :

Dr. David :

yes you would have more symptoms by now if it was serious.

Customer:

Its so extreme the feeling on my head. Its so hard to believe its anxiety

Dr. David :

I know.

Dr. David :

bad anxiety can do that to you.

Dr. David :

we see this alot with clients who ask questions here at JustAnswer

Customer:

What can i do to stop worrying at the moment? Im so sure im going to die its unbelievable

Dr. David :

you need to talk to your doctors to be set up to see a psychotherapist weekly

Dr. David :

to talk about these fears you have.

Dr. David :

your psychotherapist has to teach you techniques such as deep breathing and mental visualization and cognitive behavioral therapy to help decrease your anxiety symptoms.

Customer:

Would it not be classed as personality changes the way i feel? I feel like a completely different person to who i normally am

Dr. David :

and you have to talk to your doctor about increasing your sertraline dose.

Dr. David :

no, it would not be classified as personality changes.

Customer:

Do you understand why imso concerned? I feel like im almost dead and no1 can find anything wrong

Dr. David :

yes,

Dr. David :

I understand why you are concerned.

Dr. David :

do you understand the recommendations I have given you?

Customer:

I do but all i want is relief from this spaciness

Dr. David :

I have given you suggestions for this.

Customer:

So you definitely think its nothing physical?

Dr. David :

yes, I definitely know it is nothing physical

Customer:

I know your the doctor but how do you know for certain?

Dr. David :

because you have been to the ER several times and nothing physical was found.

Dr. David :

that is how I know for certain.

Customer:

They didnt do a scan though, would they know even if no scan done and what if they missed something?

Dr. David :

you can go back and ask for a scan.

Dr. David :

scans are more expensive for society to pay for.

Dr. David :

I would bet you $100000 pounds that your scan will show no brain tumor.

Dr. David :

your doctors would not have missed anything.

Dr. David :

let me know if you have other questions.

Customer:

Something i forgot to mention ive got like a clicking noise in my right ear

Dr. David :

you could be grinding your teeth and this can cause a clicking noise in your right ear.

your anxiety is bad now because you are pregnant and not able to take all of your anti-anxiety medications like you normally do

Customer:

Im only taking what i uSually take though. I dont normally take anything different

your pregnancy hormones could be making you more anxious and spacy feeling.

I was fine for the first 6 months of pregnancy. I really think its something physical it doesnt feel like anxiety

Dr. David :

well, go back to the ER and get testing.

Dr. David :

but your doctors don't want to do any more testing.

Dr. David :

and your ER doctors will refuse you to have a brain CT scan.

Dr. David :

you shouldn't be having brain CT scans while you are pregnant.

your doctors would not have missed anything.

Customer:

Its so hard to describe how i feel thats why i worry somethings been missed because i cant sa

Customer:

Its so hard to describe how i feel thats why i keep thinking something has been missed because i cant describe how i feel properly. Is there any tests that havnt been done which you y

Customer:

I find it so hard to describe how i feel thats why i think something has been missed. I feel like i cant say exactly how i feel. Are there any tests that havnt been done that you think should or need to be?

Dr. David :

no, you don't need any more testing.

Customer:

I just dont know where to turn next ive been everywhere and its not getting better

Dr. David :

your symptoms most likely won't get better until you have your baby and are able to go on stronger anti-anxiety medication.

Customer:

Is there nothing i can do for this spaciness and overwhelming feeling of death?

Dr. David :

you can do mental imaging techniques

Dr. David :

and cognitive behavioral techniques

Dr. David :

and biofeedback techniques to help decrease your anxiety symptoms.

Customer:

Ive tried all that tho and nothings working. Im so scared doctor i dont no where to turn

Dr. David :

we have been talking 3 days like this.

Dr. David :

and I don't think I am helping you.

Customer:

So what should i do? Thats all i want some guidance. Ive got nowhere else to go

Dr. David :

you should talk to your doctor to get you into psychotherapy more frequently

Dr. David :

and to increase your dose of sertraline up to 150mg a day.

Customer:

They wont allow me to increase it because im pregnant. If i cant get some relief soon and no one will help me im just gona give up and not bother living anymore

Dr. David :

you have to keep living for you baby

Customer:

I no but i cant even look after myself. All i want is some help

Dr. David :

when is your next appointment to see your psychotherapist?

Customer:

Friday, i just seen someone on friday

Dr. David :

you have to talk to your therapist about your fears and ask for more techniques to help you decrease your fears and anxieties

Customer:

I have over and over again but getting nowhere. I just want to know im going to get better

Dr. David :

you will get better after you have this baby and can get started on stronger medications.

Customer:

Im on the same meds as ive always been on and they helped me last time. I was no where near as bad

Dr. David :

well, your anxiety could be worse now that you are pregnant.

Customer:

Why would it be worse coz im pregnant? I was so happy for the first 6 months

Dr. David :

it could be due to hormone changes later on in your pregnancy.

Customer:

What if its something bad and its going to hurt me and baby

Dr. David :

it is not anything bad.

Dr. David :

you were just in maternity.

Dr. David :

your doctors would not let you hurt yourself and your baby.

Customer:

I no but what if they missed something

Dr. David :

this is your anxiety disorder making you worried that they missed something.

Dr. David :

they didn't miss anything.

Dr. David :

you are not thinking clearly because of your anxiety disorder.

Dr. David :

we have been over these issues several times already.

Dr. David :

but your anxiety disorder will not let you move on from these worries.

Customer:

All tests are coming back fine thats what i cant understand

Dr. David :

because the only thing wrong is your anxiety disorder.

Customer:

I just cant get my head around it. I know im anxious but how bad i am cant just be anxiety

Dr. David :

yes, it is just due to your severe anxiety disorder

Customer:

All i want is to be well for my baby coming

Dr. David :

so you have to keep seeing your therapist and keep getting well baby evaluations by your doctor.

Dr. David :

and you will be fine.

Customer:

Ive spoken to doctor and mental health nurse. They wont adjust my medication or do anything else. What else can i do?

Dr. David :

you have to see a psychotherapist and talk about cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to help decrease your anxiety symptoms.

Customer:

SerioUslY is there any other tests i need to have? Its been 2 months and im just getting worse

Dr. David :

you can ask for more testing from your doctors.

Customer:

IVE tried cbt twice and hasnt worked

Dr. David :

but they most likely will refuse.

Dr. David :

and if you get more testing like a brain MRI scan or brain CT scan, it will be normal.

Customer:

What tests shiuld i ask for? How do you know they will be normal?

Dr. David :

I know they will be normal because I am a doctor and all of your testing so far are normal.

Dr. David :

and you have bad anxiety disorder and you are young.

Dr. David :

you have ask for scans of your brain in the past and your doctors have refused this.

Dr. David :

you are having a hard time thinking clearly because of your anxiety disorder.

Customer:

Is there any other tests i need other than scans?

Dr. David :

no, you don't need any other testing

Customer:

I feel so ill and not getting any better. Where can i turn?

Dr. David :

you can see your therapist weekly.

Dr. David :

you can also see your GP doctor.

Customer:

Ive tried all those things but nothing is working

Customer:

Please tell me how to get rid of this spaciness i dont want to die

Dr. David :

you will not die.

Dr. David :

you will not be able to get rid of the spaciness feeling until after you have your baby and get on stronger medications.

Customer:

What am i meant to do till then? I really think im going to die

Dr. David :

you are not going to die.

Dr. David :

you have not died so far.

Dr. David :

you have to bear with your excessive anxiety symptoms until you have your baby.

Dr. David :

and then your doctors will be able to give you stronger medications.

Customer:

I no i havnt died yet but what if its going to happen?

Dr. David :

I promise you that you will not die.

Dr. David :

your doctors will not let you die.

Dr. David :

I have promised you that you will not die before, correct?

Customer:

Yeh i no you have but what if they have missed something

Customer:

I feel like they are letting me die

Customer:

Please help me?

Dr. David :

your doctors have not missed anything.

Dr. David :

your doctors are not going to let you die.

Customer:

How do you know? I really feel like im dying

Dr. David :

I know just like your doctors know that you are not going to die.

Customer:

How can i feel so terrible and not be ill

Dr. David :

you are ill. you have a mental illness with severe anxiety disorder.

Customer:

Please can you explain to me how you know for definite?

Customer:

I need it spelt out to me so i can try and understand

Dr. David :

I know just like your doctors know for sure that you will not die.

Dr. David :

I have studied medicine and psychiatry

Dr. David :

and know that your symptoms are not due to a physiological problem.

Dr. David :

they are due to a psychological illness.

Customer:

Have i explained well enough how i feel though? I dont think im getting across how bad i am

Dr. David :

yes, you are getting this across.

Dr. David :

but I'm not sure what you want me to do over the internet

Dr. David :

I have tried to reassure you as best as I can.

Customer:

I no and i appreciate it. If i was an illness what symptoms would i have? It just feels so much like im seriously ill

Dr. David :

looking for more symptoms will only worsen your anxiety.

Dr. David :

there are too many illness to list all symptoms.

Dr. David :

from your symptoms you are describing, you have severe anxiety disorder which is a mental illness disease.

Dr. David :

this is what is causing you to feel so ill and be so worried and panicked about dying.

Customer:

The only symptom im concerned about is this spacey not there feeling which is so bad i cant do anything

Dr. David :

that is from your anxiety disorder causing this.

Dr. David :

this is not a sign that you will die.

Customer:

Even though i feel so much like im dying i cant even get out of my seat im so spaced out and dont no where i am

Dr. David :

this is from your bad anxiety disorder.

Dr. David :

you will not die.

Customer:

Can it make you feel that unwell tho

Customer:

It just cant be right

Dr. David :

yes, severe anxiety disorder can make you feel this unwell.

Customer:

Can it feel like your dying 24 hours a day?

Dr. David :

yes, with severe anxiety disorder you can feel this way for 24 hours a day.

Customer:

Is there nothing i can do or take to make it a bit better myself since doctor wont do anything

Dr. David :

you are pregnant so there are many medications you can not take.

Dr. David :

but you can take them after your pregnancy.

Customer:

So im not going to get any better at the minute?

Dr. David :

most likely not until you have your baby and get stronger anxiety medications.

Customer:

How can i cope till then?

Dr. David :

you have to cope.

Dr. David :

you seem to be talking to me to try to cope.

Dr. David :

you should be seeing your therapist as well.

Customer:

I am and ringing her i just want to be certain im not going to die

Dr. David :

I am certain that you are not going to die.

Customer:

I just want to know how you know for certain thats all

Dr. David :

because I am a doctor.

Dr. David :

and very experience in patients who have extreme anxiety disorder.

Dr. David :

I am certain just like your doctors you see in the UK in the maternity ward are certain you will not die.

Dr. David :

you are not certain because you have extreme anxiety symptoms

Dr. David :

and are having a hard time thinking clearly.

Customer:

I want to believe it so so much. Ive got a bit of a headache now aswell

Dr. David :

probably from not getting enough sleep and not drinking enough water.

Customer:

I can hardly see, feel so spaced out and just cannot do anything

Dr. David :

this is your anxiety disorder being out of control and not being well treated because you are pregnant.

Dr. David :

you have to hang in there and tolerate these symptoms until you are able to have your baby and then get on stronger treatment.

Customer:

Its so bad though surely theres got to be some way to make it a bit better?

Dr. David :

we have talked about ways to help you feel better.

Customer:

Dr. David :

I am as sure as can be that you don't have anything else wrong.

Dr. David :

you have a bad anxiety disorder making you worried.

Dr. David :

you have to hang in there until you have your baby.

Customer:

Cant get 100% though so that tells me something can be wrong

Dr. David :

no, that is your anxiety disorder making you worried.

Dr. David :

nothing in medicine is 100%

Dr. David :

nothing in life is 100%

Customer:

I no that but after all my tests etc shouldnt there be 100% that Im OK now?

Dr. David :

I have told you that you are ok.

Dr. David :

and that there is nothing seriously wrong already.

Dr. David :

but your anxiety disorder will not allow you to believe me or trust me or your doctors.

Dr. David :

you will continue to worry about doubt that there might be something more, because your anxiety symptoms are out of control

Customer:

All i want is this spaciness to go away

Customer:

The doctor also said if it was a tumour i would have weakness in some part of my body is that right?

Dr. David :

yes, if it was a tumor, you would have had other symptoms such as stroke like symptoms or seizures.

Dr. David :

you don't have a brain tumor.

Customer:

What do you think the chances are of dying suddenly?

Dr. David :

I have told you that you will not die suddenly.

Dr. David :

your chances of dying suddenly are zero.

Customer:

It feels so much like im dying. Do you think ill survive till baby comes?

Dr. David :

yes, I have told you that you will survive until the baby comes.

Customer:

It just makes me worry coz the doctor cant give me 100% that im definitely ok so what if there is something wrong?

Dr. David :

there is nothing wrong.

Dr. David :

your anxiety disorder is causing you to not think clearly and to continue to worry.

Dr. David :

you will continue to worry until you have this baby and get on some stronger anti-anxiety medications.

Dr. David :

you don't have a brain tumor.

Customer:

I just want to becable to manage. Im scared this will never go away

Dr. David :

Dr. David :

I have been 100% sure nothing will happen to you.

Dr. David :

I have told you this many times.

Customer:

I know your sure but i dont understand how you are? The spaciness is just terrible. Is there anything else i can take except anti depressant medication to make this better?

Dr. David :

you can talk to your doctor about taking medications like valium or klonazepam to help decrease anxiety, but these can be bad for the baby.

Dr. David :

you can talk to your doctor about medications like buspirone and hydroxyzine which are safe to take during pregnancy to help decrease your anxiety symptoms.

Customer:

Are they like a fast acting drug or a proper anti depressant? The thing is i dont feel anxious just really spaced out thats what makes me think its not anxiety

Dr. David :

they are fast acting and not antidepressants and can be used along with your antidepressant.

Dr. David :

it is your anxiety disorder which is causing this brain fog and spaciness

Customer:

Can it really last this long 24 hours a day. 9 weeks with no relief?

Dr. David :

yes, excessive anxiety disorder can last that long.

Customer:

Will i definitely get better? I will personally want to come and thank you if i do. Ive never wanted anything more

Dr. David :

you will get better once you have your baby and are able to take stronger medication.

Dr. David :

ask your doctors about buspirone and hydroxyzine which you can take now.
