Hi everyone. So ive been pretty scared the past 4 months that i have a brain tumor and the symtoms im getting are double vision loss of smell. And muscle weakness. The double vision my eye doctor thinks is from dry eyes (wich i believe her) but the eye drops dont seem to be working. I also only see the double vision on the cumputer. The loss of smell is conpletely lost. Its just i cant smell that well and i went to go see and ear throat and nose doctor and they said it (could) be post nasal drip. Ive been soing the flownase dor 2 weeks and dont see any improvments. Then for the muscle weakness. Ive had very bad anxiety for the past 9 months and havnt been active at all. I used to do all sorrs of activites but for right now there on hold. So i noticed the muscle weakness when i would get out of bed and when i try to use my abs (core). My body would shake. Everyone says my body is just weak from not being active. Also keep in mind i did have blood tests done and nothing came back alarming. The only thing that stood out was my viteman D level was very low and im taking suppliments for that. I shouldnt of looked up symtoms for brain tumor that was a mistake. Can anyone help me?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Your symptoms are consistent with hypochondriasis.
You would need psychiatric consultation.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
