User :   hi, basically my doctor diagnosed me with anxiety about 3 month ok im currently taking anti depressants to help me, but im constantly worrying i have a brain tumor or some sort of other tumor with all the awful physical symptoms im having, no matter what im doing i constantly think about that im living in fear, the onlt thing ive had is a blood test and ecg but had them before all this has started, my doctor wont send me for an mri or anyhting because she thinks im totally fine and reassures me im going to be all right, if she was really concerned she would have sent me for 1 right? but i know my own body and it doesnt feel right at all and its really worrying me, i have headaches almost everyday for the past 5-6 weeks the doctor said it was tension headache and i have nothing to worry about but i just cant help it, im convinced i have a tumor of some sort and i consatnlty look on line and that is really bad as it always brings things up major, i have quite alot of physical symptoms but the doc doesnt sem to take me seriously, what if i do have something and they have missed it out and im left for dead?
