headache, tingling, nausea

Continuous headache pressure at base of skull for 5 mo with nausea, dizziness, numbness/tingling right side of face, burning pain right side of face and in head.  Once had pupil dilation that would nto constrict with symptoms. Has Orthostatic Hypotension and toe turns up for Babinski response.  All tests normal: Blood, MRI, MRA, Heart tests, etc.  

Question: Should we be concerned about Babinski resonse if every other test is normal?

Hello.

Is the Babinski's response present on both the sides?

It suggests upper motor neuron dysfunction or loss. I am surprised at the normal MRI report. I was suspecting some intracranial space occupying lesion.

What are the other symptoms?

Regards
