Scared i have a brain tumor

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?

The symptoms and signs that you have described are unrelated to a brain tumour. A neurological exam should be performed and if required an MRI brain can be advised to rule out the possibility of a space occupying lesion
