Was hoping I could ask a question here and maybe get a little reassurance that I might not have a brain tumor.
I got numbness in my tongue/mouth/nose and general weakness along with a headache over a week ago. It hasn't gone away. It will settle down if I sit still, but will come back on with the facial numbness whenever I exert myself at all. I mean just walking across a room will set it off. Headache is focused mostly in forehead and between the eyes.
I visited a neurologist as soon as I could, but a MRI couldn't be scheduled until the end of this week. Said he thought I didn't have an aneurysm, but might be migraine.
Does anybody have an experience like this with migraine? I feel terrible if I move around. Just generally weak. I should note I'm a pretty fit 39-year-old guy. Is it even possible for a migraine to last this long (9 days now) ??
Just looking for a little peace of mind.
