For approximately a month now, I have had a dull pressure above my left eye brow and at my left temple. It sometimes comes to the bridge of my nose or radiates to the top of my head and is sometimes prevelant at my right temple. It is just a dull ache or pressure, nothing that has required me to take anything or see a doctor. I am not the kind of person that gets headaches at all. I have also just started having sudden movements in any part of my body if I am sitting or especially if I am laying in bed. Any part of me will jerk or twitch at any time. I am very anxious about this. I am taking wellbutrin and effexor for depression as my father is battling pancreatic cancer and none of my brothers and sisters get along. It has been a very difficult time. My wife thinks it is stress but I told her my body doesn't act like this. I have been taking these meds for about 8 months. I am afraid to go to my physician for fear of looking like a hypochondriac. I am also concerned about brain cancer as my job of 18 years has exposed me to many different chemicals. I am not nausiated, confused or anything like that. My motor functions seem alright except for the symptoms I refered to earlier. I am very concerned, could a neurologist please advise. Thank you. P.S. There is a strong history of cancer on my dad's side of the family. Colon, pancreatic and 1 brain.
