Do I have a brain tumor???!

I am 14 and i think i have a brain tumor. My mom thinks i do not but i really think I do. I have had headaches for several years now and recently they have gotten worse, so bad I can even go to school. I have puked once from them. My speech has gotten kind of bad. My left arm spazes out all the time. My personality has changed, and my i have changed physical. And i am very dizzy a lot.

Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

Presence of symptoms mentioned could be due to a variety of conditions, not excluding tumors or space occupying lesions.

Imaging studies like a CT scan or a MRI might be helpful to know the exact cause of your symptoms.

You might consider to consult with your doctor who can examine you and order the above tests and also get additional tests if required.

I hope this helps.
