I have been diagnosed with anxiety attacks but other than that I feel lightheaded 24/7 is that a sign I may have a brain tumor? So scared please help!

Try to relax ;-) Anxiety is a lot more common than a brain tumor, and anxiety is a better explanation for lightheadedness anyway. Treat your anxiety and see if the lightheadedness goes away — it probably will. You might also be hyperventilating, ie, breathing too much due to anxiety. See the treatment section at: http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/hyperventilation_syndrome. Read more...
Slow down; breathe. Feeling lightheaded is not a typical sign of brain tumor, but it can well be a sign of anxiety and some other conditions. Your family physician can do a good evaluation (including neurological), check bp, heart, etc plus any other indicated labs or diagnostic studies. This should help rule out conditions of major physical concern so you can participate wholeheartedly in treatment for anxiety. Read more...
