Back to Blogging! Update!

I've been away from my blog for a bit. It's actually been about a month, but I had to take a bit of a break for health reasons.

To basically cut to the chase I have been dealing with a lot of anxiety. I few months ago I started getting some sharp pains in my head. They would come every so often. Initially I just ignored it, but then I started to get them more frequently and they were more intense. I decided to go see my Dr.. She decided I should get a CT scan, so I went along and did that and the results were fine. 

I still continued to get these pains though. I was getting them every day. I started to really worry a lot! I was just wondering what it could possibly be. I started to google my symptoms which is a terrible idea but I did it anyways. It just caused me even more anxiety reading everything I was looking up. 

About 4 weeks ago I got a pain which then caused me to get a severe panic attack. Everything was just really taking it's toll on me. I ended up in the ER. All of the ER tests came back fine. The ER Dr. suggested I get an MRI of my head to really make sure nothing was in there. 

After getting out of the hospital I was pretty much a mess with anxiety every day. I was actually very depressed. I was crying every day. The thought of something serious being wrong was very scary to me. A big reason why I felt so depressed about everything was because last year my uncle passed away from cancer. He had a brain tumor. The fact that I was going to be tested for the same thing my uncle passed away from was terrifying. Not only that my my grandpa had it as well. 

Thankfully I had my parents and brother to help me through all of this while my husband was at work everyday. 

The last couple weeks my pains have calmed down. I don't get them every day nor are they as severe as they had been months ago. 

I finally had my MRI last Wednesday and I just got my results and I am extremely happy to say I have no tumors. Everything with the MRI came out fine. Thank god! 

I still need to follow up with the neurologist so we can figure out what was causing me these pains. It could possible be my jaw causing me pain. Years ago after I had my wisdom teeth removed my jaw basically stayed locked every day. I never followed up with that so that could be the issue. I'm not going to over think things or google anything anymore. I'm leaving it all up to my doctors! Lol! I have an appointment with the neurologist at the beginning of next year. January 7th to be exact. I will talk with him about my jaw and all my symptoms so we can get to the bottom of these issues. 

From now on I'm gonna just try not to worry. Since I got my good MRI results I feel as if a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. 

I plan on getting back to blogging right away since I'm currently feeling much better. 

I have a lot of great stuff to blog about, so be on the look out for new posts asap! :)

I'm so happy you're healthy! It's so stressful when you feel like there's something wrong, nothing else matters more than your health! I'm a chronic worrier so I know how scary things can be. I hope you can figure out exactly what caused the pains.
