Brain tumour - terrified

Posted , 5 users are following.

Ok I need some help getting to the bottom of this and some rational thinking because I certainly haven't been thinking properly. 

So a list of my symptoms 

Increased aura migraine length 2-3 hours from 30 minutes. (Twice) 

Tingling cheek 

Numbness all over face and forehead (not completely numb just warm and lack of sensation slightly) 

Warm hands that also seem to very lightly tingle when warm 

Same with feet mainly left foot. 

Strange irritating head sensation. Not painful but weird almost overly pleasant if that makes sense. 

Vision seems to have gotten worse. Almost like they over focus when looking st phone or TV 

Woke up this morning with numb fingers completely numb and felt fat that took ten minutes to get feeling back. (Left band only even though I wasnt laying on that side)

Arms feeling like they're not mine. Almost confused which is my left and which is my right but yet I can use them fine. 

Lack of apitite 


There may be other things but right now I can't think of them. But for the past 3 weeks I've been having all this go on and doctor just said migraine. Even though I haven't had a migraine now for a couple of weeks so it can't be that. 

I have been extremely stressed and extremely anxious so I don't know. Has anyone ever had these symptoms or anything like them. Help me out to think rationally please. 

Oh and also get like a vibration throughout my whole body but my body isn't moving.

    I can understand that these symptoms are worrying, but no one on this site is a doctor.  We can't diagnose an illness.  I suggest you insist that your doctor to refer you to a neurologist for further tests.  If you're already seeing one, get a second opinion.  

    Best of luck to you.

    I really don't think it sounds like a brain tumor. The couple people I know that have had a brain tumor experienced blinding headaches that were constant and considerable visual disturbances. However I don't exactly know what to tell you as what I think it could be. Although I have to admit I don't exactly believe the doctor's right either. You can have all these symptoms during a migraine for sure but to have them constantly for 3 weeks and no head pain seems implausible. However there is such a thing as a migraine with no head pain. But I don't think they last very long. I know cuz I've had one. You don't say your sex or age or anything about your health so it's kind of hard to come up with any ideas. You might share some of that in a comment. Maybe some more people can come onto and give you some ideas. But please try not to get too anxious over this because as you very well know it'll just cause more problems. Of course I realize that's easier said than done.

    Those are a lot of symptoms

    I would definitely push for an MRI of your brain

    And ask them to also look in the pituitary area

    For a tumor

    Your blurry vision could be because of a pituitary tumor

    Pressing on the nerves

    You may be able to go to an eye doctor

    To get a recommendation for an mri

    Also if it is a pituitary tumor, you would want to test


    T3,t4 and tsh level

    Also look up acromegaly and see if

    The symptoms match up

    My uncle had the similar symptoms. His plight started with the eye problem. He had problem in focusing the objects with severe headache. He initially thought that his cataract operation did not go well and it was due to this he had eye problem. He also, started feeling numbness throughout his body and the condition was getting worsen day by day. 

    He is very careless about his health and usually neglects his body signals. His wife, forcefully took him to  where he was diagnosed with brain tumor.  He had his operation last week, he is recuperating very well.

    So, I advise don't ignore the body signals and contact a neurologists  immediately. Wishing for your good health!!
