As mentioned in the title, I've been feeling a fair amount of pressure on my brain for a month and have been experiencing very brief unsteadiness/loss of balance for around the same amount of time.

I know Dr. Google's diagnoses should be taken with a grain of salt, but I was wondering if I could be developing a brain tumor (Grade II)? I'm not freaking out about it, I just want some information.

More information about me is I'm a 21 year-old male and have GERD. I'm also taking an antipsychotic, an antidepressant, and a beta-blocker for about a year now.

Hi and welcome. I'm sorry you're having these feelings. Have you spoken to your doctor? Please call the office and describe what is happening. This could be the medication you are taking. One of them, all of them or in combination, they may be giving you these symptoms. Even a pharmacist might be able to tell you if those meds could cause those symptoms, especially if taken together. Please contact your doctor's office. (And - although I'm not a doctor, the likelihood that it's a brain tumor is low.)

Welcome to the forum..

There are so many reasons for the symptoms you are having they could not be listed here!

Do yourself a huge favor, start by going to your family doc. Talk to the doc, include any eating habits that have changed. Include how many energy drinks [if you consume them] you have during a day.

Drink more water 28oz a day at least.

Do will do a physical, blood test etc....

Knowledge helps come the anxiety and castrophic forecasting.

Peace and strength
