I'm 17 years old. Since June 2007, I've been suffering with headaches. I do have tight neck muscles, but I still get headaches every day -- I've had a CT scan and everything's checked out fine. The headaches tend to subside if I put ice or flexall on my neck, something which relaxes the muscles. Also, I've noticed that I go through periods where my vision gets really blurry. Usually, if I put my head down on the table to rest or something, I'll lift my head back up after a few minutes; when I do, my vision is blurry for almost a whole minute. I've had eye surgery in the past when I was 6 and I'm going to my eye doctor on Friday. I'm just nervous because sometimes I notice that I have slight difficulty reading. I don't know if there's something wrong with my eyes, but I know I've been so scared that I have a brain tumor. Since I've had the clean CT and monthly blood tests for thyroid screenings, I know I'm fine. Still, I'm nervous. Do you think I just need glasses/contacts again? I know I didn't do well on my last eye test; I could hardly see anything, but they kept showing me the same line. I told them I couldn't see much, but they were like, "well you read the slides fine. your vision is fine, too." needless to say, I'm going to a new doctor.
I should also add that I have difficulty walking on occasion, but I do have spastic diplegic cerebral palsy, so I'm not sure if I just need to stretch my muscles a little more. Finally, I have a little trouble with short-term memory as well.
