About 5 days ago my hearing in my left ear started to fade. Last year I have similar hearing loss but it was becuase of ear wax. I dont know if it is because of ear wax now. Also in ballet class we bent back and I started seeing black, and felt dizzy, but i could hear and was aware of everything around me. It only last a few seconds. Today it happened twice! Just today I have felt slight sinus pressure, but I have had a cough and runny noes for a while. Also I have had headaches when I get a little tired at night. They are dull and go away sometimes if I take tylonal(spelling?). Also sometime, very rarely, my left eyes has spasims that i can feel but know one else sees. I am soooo nervous about having a brain tumor! I am only a 13 year old girl and haven't talked to my parents yet. What should I do? And could I have a brain tumor?!
While it is unlikely that the symptoms you describe are due to a brain tumor, only a CT scan or MRI scan of the brain can rule-out a brain tumor.
You should ask your parents to take you to see your doctor. If your doctor examines you and is concerned about the possibility of a brain tumor (or other brain abnormality), then he/she can order the appropriate tests.
