You should not worry too much especially with benign brain imaging tests. Enjoy your daily walking, practice meditation, tai chi or relaxation technique is highly recommended.

Suggest some brief counseling to learn coping skills and relaxation techniques. It will enhance your future. Incidentally, most doctors would have not done extensive imaging unless you had abnormal exam
