I have been suffering pressure headaches and other headaches recently. I have never had them before. Also a few weeks ago i had trouble swallowing. My fingers have recently become tingly on occasion aswell. Also when i have been in bed and i get up in the morning i my vision is blurred. I am quite a worrier and i am now really worrying about this and i am scared.
Is this syntoms of a brain tumor? Please help.
Headache, blurred vision and trouble swallowing could be signs of a brain tumor but those symptoms can also be signs of many other disorders that are more common than a brain tumor. Headache is the most common symptom that can be found in many disorders and conditions starting from simple tiredness to a brain tumor. The possibility of a headache being caused by a brain tumor is very small. Blurred vision can be due to many eye disorders so you can check that with an ophthalmologist. Trouble swallowing can be due to a throat infection which is more common than a brain tumor.
I'm 16, and recently I've been having pressure in my head and it feels like it's about to explode. My visions blurred, I can't focus on anything or concentrate or really communicate. My left arm was numb the other night and I'm dizzy constantly. I'm afraid it's a brain tumor. I can't focus in school and can't go out anymore. It's awful. What do you think? I'm scared.
