I have myself convinced that I have a brain tumor. Im terrified. My app. with a neurologist isnt until the 18th and then I have to wait for an MRI...
Im loosing my mind. Im terrified.
Head pressure ranging from mild to moderate through most of the day; Seems to be moderate towards the end of day or when I am in the car.
On and off headaches in the temple region and sinuses that can be sharp and range from mild to moderate; Never seem to be in the morning or when I wake up. They usually after I have been up for a few hours or after being at work and tends to be slightly sharper on the right side.
Tingling sensation in my head that kind of feels like when your foot falls asleep or the chills.
Nausea that is mild but, udually throughout the day.
Leg weakness in both legs that is mild.
*****Right pupil dialation; The right pupil dialates quite a bit when in indoor light. Also, my right eye lid seems to droop slightly (The drooping is something I have noticed for a few years) and the entire eye seems to be slightly higher up than the other.
Random upper back pain and tingling like pins and needles. Pain is usually on the lower right and pins and needles in on the lower left.
Also, for 2 days now my neck hurts. Its not stiff really. Its more of a pain at the base of my skull and at the end of my neck where the shoulders meet.
Now and then my chest hurts. Not in the actual breast but more in the bone that is in the middle.
I am 25 years old. I have 2 very small children...
Im terrified. I have had a NON contrast CT that 2 doctors have read but came back normal but, those can be wrong.
Brain tumors are pretty rare. Headaches on the other hand are pretty common. But if you get yourself whipped up with anxiety... you need to get help for the anxiety more than anything else.
One sided headaches are most likely migraine. It is classic for migraine. It even causes nausea.
So enjoy your kids, listen to some soft music, put a cold pack or warm pack (whatever works), sit in the dark, and journal so you know your headache triggers. It can be weather, food, perfume... so it can take a bit to drill down on the cause.
