I've never heard of a brain tumor having those symptoms. You can get an awful headache from eye strain but the worst headaches are from sinus infection.
I once woke up with my ears ringing very loudly and a pain in my left arm and I immediately rang a nurse who said those symptoms didn't indicate anything serious. It has happened a few times since then and it's still alarming but so far nothing has happened. I do have BP issues and arrhythmia for which I take medication, and I take CoQ10 every day (it's pretty expensive, but I notice a positive difference when I take it).
Your rapid pulse and/or palpitations can be helped so much by quitting all caffeine, cigarettes, cola and alcohol and any other stimulants, as well as trying to avoid stressful situations and possibly blockbuster action movies that have you on the edge of your seat. Another thing that's very helpful is to focus on breathing properly and filling your lungs.
I would return to the dr for an assessment of the effectiveness of the BP medication and dosage you're on. I had to have my dosage doubled.
Based on your comments, you need to find a NEW DOCTOR immediately. Find a new doctor that will listen to you. Listen to your symptoms. All your symptoms like heart pounding, legs shaking, ears ringing, pain in your left arm, nausea in the morning could be side effects of one of the drugs you are currently taking. I have a guide book to drugs and supplements . I live in Canada. The book is called " The Canadian Guide to Drug and Supplements. " published by the Canadian Pharmacists Association and Reader's Digest. You mentioned you are taking "propronlol" . In the drug book, I found a drug called " propranolol". I'll tell you what the book says under General Information about this drug. PROPRANOLOL Prapranolol, introduced in 1965, was the first widely used beta blocker. It is most often used to treat hypertension, agina, and abnormal heart rhythms but it is also helpful in controlling the fast heart rate and other symptoms of an overactive thyroid gland. Propranolol also helps to reduce the palpitations, sweating, and tremor of severe anxiety and is also used to prevent migrane headaches. STOPPING THE DRUG Do not stop the drug without consulting your doctor. Abrupt cessation ( suddenly stopping the drug) may lead to worsening of the underlying condition. POSSIBLE ADVERSE EFFECTS Common Rare
Lethargy/ fatigue * Cold hands and feet * Naseau is rare Nightmares/vivid dreams are rare Dry eyes are rare Fainting/breathlessness are rare if this happens, call the doctor immediately. better yet, I would call an ambulance. ( my opinion) visual disturbances are rare I'm not a physician. I'm telling you what I found in the book I mentioned above. You say you're taking 10 milligrams of propranolol - 1 tablet daily. Like I said before, if your current doctor is not listening to you which it sounds like she isn't. Personally I don't think these symptoms you are having are because you are using the lap top too much. Based on the possible adverse effects in this book, you are experiencing one of the possible adverse effects 1. lethargy You say you are nauseated in the morning.Th is is a possible RARE effect of PROPRANOLOL. If this were happening to me, I'd find a new doctor immediately. Your husband can help you look for one in Amsterdam. If your symptoms really get worse, personally, I would go to the emergency section of your nearest hospital and have your husband drive your there. You mention that you take " parecetomol" for your headaches. I can't find this drug in my reference book here. Bottom line- I would find a new doctor as soon as you can who will listen to your symptoms and actually do something about it. I hope this has been helpful information.
