my partner has been suffering with headaches for a good few months at the front of his head. He saw his .G.P a few months ago who said they were stress headaches. He is 41 and generally fit and healthy. Recently they have become more regular and more severe and he also says he can smell burning rubber when nobody else can. Any idea as he wont go back to G.P. as he says he wasteing their time?

headache with burning rubber smell
I wish someone knew what is going on. I have the exact same problem. I have headaches and the burning rubber smell lasts for just a few seconds but it happens every 5 minutes or so. People at work think I am crazy.

Go see your doctor
Hello, some of those symptoms relate to brain tumors. Have you googled your symptoms? I think it may be a good idea to go back to the doctor and specify the exact symptoms.
