Hi I'm a 32yr old female. A few weeks ago I was dx with Hpv cells in my pap. My gynecologist is not worried at all and wants me to come back in 6 months. Lately I've been feeling like something is wrong with me. I do work a lot and have been sleep deprived for the last week or so. I am stressed out about money also. I lost another family member on Sunday, this would be the 3rd close lost in less than 2 yrs they both died suddenly. Yesterday 1/5/15 in the AM I had a little blurred vision and some issues with speech. This happened after I had problems at work with someone. I had this uneasy feeling all day. Finally I felt lightheaded and I decided to go to the ER. I thought I was having a stroke. All the labs came back fine and the dr gave me Xanax. I noticed today that I feel like I can't get my words out or that I am trying to fast to speak. I'm looking up things on the Internet and I think have a brain tumor. Is this just anxiety rooted from all the loss I had in family ?
There is a possibility that grief can precipitate in certain behaviors that are ultra cautious. Please consult a psychiatrist to perform a mini mental state exam to rule out anxiety and/or depression. CBT Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and drugs can be initiated afterwards. You can ask your doctor if the polyvalent Cervical cancer vaccine is available or not that can prevent against 10 strains of the HPV, known to cause malignant lesions.
