Why i keep having headaches after my flu ?

hi all ,

i have been recently ( past 2-3 weeks ) been having headaches on and off , very painful sometimes in the noon time when the sun is very bright and hot ( I live in a tropical country )

I am very worried if I might have some tumour im only 29 years old .

the pain is usually on the top of my head and I can "feel" my brain when I shake my head , if anyone knows what I mean .

sometimes the pain would go away after sleep . my neck also feels very stiff ....

anyone can pls advise  what I should do  ? MRI Scan or Xray ? what could it be ?

so worried .

Go back and see the doctor. It could be that you still have residual infection.

Have you seen an eye doc recently?

There could be eye pressure - glaucumo type things which your eye sight can be perfect but your eyes are not - or optic nerve issues. Plus they are just good with headaches too - and may pick up stuff that is slight. That is why an eye doc may not be a bad idea.

There is no harm is going to a doc and telling them you have had a headache for 8 weeks - get an exam. Sinus infections can persist for a long time.

That is up to the doctor - why not see him first and let him decide?

Try another doctor - or another kind - like ENT. Sounds like your doc is busy - and is not paying attention.
