I have been struggling for about a year now with constant head pain in the right top center area of my head. It usually begins right when I wake up.....who knows, it may be there when I am asleep I just don't realize it. Anyhow, along with it I have lightheadedness and feel as if I am going to just drop to the floor; sometimes I also feel a tingling sensation in the area and a pulse. I have had a few MRI's too. First one showed small UBO's, second showed that the UBO's then turned out to be brain lesions, and third didn't show a thing. However, I am confused to what this could be, I keep thinking brian tumor, or aneurysm, but my neuro informs me that it would have show up in the MRI. When I read about lesions, the definition for them is "space occupying". I am really worried about aneurysm especially, because I do not have problems with my speech or learning or balance that would indicate tumor ( I think), but an aneurysm I am terrified of. Pretty much, my neuro has told me there was nothing else he could do for me because he doesn't see anything........"hello, what about the lesions???" So who do I see for aneurysms and how are they detected???

Hi Jenmarie,

Welcome to HealingWell. As far as I understand it things like aneurysms and tumours DO show up on MRI scans. I think you need to go back to your Neuro or find another one and talk to him/her about your fears and more importantly the implications of the lesions which do not seem to have been addressed!!!

Let us know how you get on, take care

Sorry you are having so much pain. ALL of my migraines are one-sided, always on the left. My aura starts on the right and swirls to the left - then the pain moves to the left and stays there.
