Hi and thanks for the query.None of the symptoms you mention can be linked to a brain tumor.These look to be more like symptoms of anxiety and stress.However, I would suggest that you see your Physician for a Neurological examination for your peace of mind.Let me know if there are any other related concerns.Please do leave a positive rating for the service.Best.

Okay still a bit concern as to I should go and see a neaurogical examiner so there may be somthing serious?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 year ago.
No, not because this is something serious, but because you seem to have health anxiety as well and the best peace of mind is achieved when one is examined and concerns are ruled out. My opinion on this website can never substitute for a doctor's visit in person.Having said that, I reiterate that your symptoms are not of a brain tumor but more likely due to your anxiety.Please do leave a positive rating for the service.Best.

Going on from our conversation Yesturday just wondering if my what I call strange problems is actualy anxiety, I can't go in public toilets if there are no windows so therefore I cannot get out I tend not to lock the door. Also I always say no to long far away trips, don't go on trains as all I think is how I can't get out or off. And I don't like going anywhere where there are people I don't know. Are all these issues anxiety??

What can I do????
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for the rating.The best course of action will be to see a psychiatrist for an evaluation, psychotherapy session, engagement in a group conversation with people suffering from the same problems and if required, anti depressant medication. The results are quite remarkable and improve the quality of life.

Right and would I have to go to my doctor first? If so what do I say, I think I have anxiety?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 year ago.
Yes, your PCP first. You do not have to say that you have anxiety, just narrate your symptoms and have the physician draw the inference. You can be interrogative, ask him/her, are these symptoms of anxiety? That will be the best approach.

Okay I'll do that this week,shall I mention about my health anxiety aswel?? And that I think I may have it, also could this be making me feel worse the constant worrying?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 year ago.
Yes, that is also worth mentioning. And that is definitely aggravating things here.
