hi all, well im back here to talk about how im doing..i still feel the same, doctors have no clue whats wrong..

right now as i am typing i have a warm/hot feeling going down the right side of my head and ear going down towards my right eye, my right eye feels like it is away from my stock-it and it also feels like theres prussure or something in my eye that i need to blink all the time

i also have a bump on the back of my head towards the right that acts up, i get sharp burning feels like someone is taking a pin and poking at it sometimes..when i get those pains i get extremely dizzy and light headed and i lose my memory for a few seconds, like somone will ask me to do something and i ask "where is it, i don't see it" and from my eye down my neck i feel numbness.

i have gone for nurmerous blood work, ct's and mri's and everything seems fine..all i know is it is scarying me more and more each day, and im convinced its a brain tumor and everyone thinks not..i understand no one here can tell me what i have and don't have but some feedback would be great..thanks

sorry if i didn't make sense, just im extremely nervous/scared

Medallion: Sorry to hear about your problems. I had similar symptons and went to doctors everywhere and some of the best hospitals in the country. I was told by the medical field that my vestibular nerve going to the brain was damaged and there was nothing the medical field could do for me.

Several months ago, I got an appointment with a homepathic doctor that has a medical degree along with homepathic and specializes in nutrional therapy. I told him about my problem all the doctors I had seen, medications I had tried and they basically said I was beyond help.

The homepathis prescribed a remedy that I put two drops on my tongue each day. God bless that man because now the problem is going away and I have not had an attack in several months. I am not perfect yet, and he has said the complete healing time may be a much as two years, but I am much better and feel like a new person today compared to 7 months ago.

If the medical field cannot find out your problem, seek alternative medicine. That is another source and you may be surprised at what you can find out from an alternative medicine doctor.

good luck to you..and keep us posted on your results.

Alternative medicine is definitely a good thing to check out. But in most cases I've seen it tends to help your body/mind cope with the problem rather than cure it (similar to the benefits of keeping a regular exercise regime). But there's also the possibility that it will provide either even greater help or, more commonly, no help at all. But as Andrew said, when you can't find an effective traditional medical treatment then it's certainly wise to try other routes.

As for worrying that you have a brain tumor, your neurological and physiological symptoms aren't extremely rare in migraine cases and it's very uncommon for a brain tumor to not show up with advanced imaging procedures. Also, with most tumors you'd see a noticeable steady decline of your health.

From a search of your posts it looks like you've been having head pain and secondary symptoms for about 8 months now, correct? It is tough dealing with chronic pain for that long, but I think you'll find that when you look at those of us that have been experienced headache related problems for longer, while for many of us the source of our problems is never identified, finding a solution to cure or treat the problems very often takes more time than you've had your headaches. This is not to say that it's not very difficult and frustrating and scary to have these problems for any amount of time, but please don't give up hope just yet. I've had headaches for about five years and I'm just now starting to improve following the trial of many scores of different medications.

I know it's hard to deal with what's going on right now, but don't forget that the future will very likely bring aid.
