    I don’t know if I explained in my first findings of Melanoma,

    I was going through anxiety, mass headaches and just complete :? fatigue I mean I was completely on edge and very hard to get along with 😈 , this went on for about 3 months and I have never felt these things before and thought for certain it would pass , just before I was about to make a Doc apt to figure out what was going on, the Melanoma appeared…Long story short They chopped it out and I have felt on top of the world the last 6-8 weeks with every apt I felt better and better,,,

    Well the last week or so I have been feeling the same crazy symptoms as I did before the removal ,,

    yesterday I had a follow up visit and told my DOC/SURGEON what was going on and she ordered a pet scan for tomorrow sheesh,, Theses doc move fast around here …..I cant find any info that links Melanoma with the symptoms??? Is my Doc being over cautious ?

    Again this morning as I wake with another piercing headache and kinda hard to get my head straight for the day… :|

    I am thinking the doctor wants to do a brain scan to rule out brain mets. But certainly headaches can be caused by many things from sinus issues to stress. I hope they have provided some medication for the discomfort and you will get the results soon to see if anything is going on. Let us know.

    Let us know what the doctor/radiologist says. I hope it is nothing of concern.
