What is this symptom?! Staying calm despite the unknown

lifes posted:
When patients have what may be neurological symptoms, especially in the head, spine, or affecting the ability to function, it's hard to not panic! "Do you think it's brain cancer?" was a question often heard on the old message board. Whether it turns out to be a neurological disorder or not, it's important to stay calm despite the unknown. During pre-diagnosis, you can research information, talk to others who also have symptoms, and decide how you'll approach this time of doctor appointments, tests, and hopefully, a diagnosis.

Come here to talk about your concerns.
