Can anxiety cause brain tumor-like symptoms? I fear that I have a brain tumor because i started getting nauseated and weak fatigued and muscle shaking

Uncontrollable nausea and vomiting (without diarrhea), dizziness, vertigo or focal weakness or sensory loss in one part of your body on one side of your body would be symptoms to watch for. Brain tumors are rare, and it's much more likely your symptoms are due to anxiety. A neurologist could help. ...Read more

Yes.: Head trauma can produce a slow bleed, but symptoms are progressive and unlikely to consist of vertigo alone. Vertigo is not a diagnosis. It is a symptom which may represent any one of a number of underlying problems ( problems in the inner ear, vestibular nerve or in brain itself.). Best to check with your doc so that you understand the cause and specific treatment of your vertigo. ...Read more

I hit my head really hard on the sharp edge of a concrete wall and felt stunned for a few seconds.  I am panicking I have a brain bleed. ?

If i had a brain bleed would the pain get worse and lessen? Would a spot in the back of my skull be tender to the touch? I've had no head trama.

If i had a brain bleed would the pain get worse and lessen? Would a spot in the back of my skull be tender to the touch? I've had no head trama.

If you have had no: Head trauma, than you fear a hemorrhagic stroke or an aneurysm? Most likely, if you had either of these, you would not feel it on the outside of your head and you would have neurologic signs ie limb weakness, problems speaking, confusion or any other neuro signs associated with damage. If you are having any other neuro signs, get checked out, but otherwise it does not sound like an active bleed. ...Read more

Bleed unlikely: A hemorrhagic stroke is dramatic to the point of not being questionable at all. You will lose use of limbs on one side or become extremely weak on one side, or loose consciousness altogether. If you're truly worried and have risk factors (fam. history, blood thinning, ), talk to your PCP and ask for imaging for re-assurance. ...Read more
