I have had frequent headaches ever since I can remember. I got my first migraine when I about 11 and I get one about once every year since then - they're so bad I sometimes have to go to the ER. Ever since I was young I'd get headaches about every 2 or 3 days I'd say, but I can never remember ibuprofen or advil helping my headaches. (maybe thats because my mom started giving me ibuprofen a lot at such a young age so i grew a tolerance?) A few months back i got a sinus infection and had headache, ear pressure, eye pain etc. I took antibiotics and it improved but i had the feeling it never quite went away, but then i kind of forgot about it & just got used to it. I have a head ache every single day now - usually gets worse throughout the day but it still hurts in the morning. My eyes get strained & store really easily lately too. Too much light hurts but too much darkness causes eye strain. I've also noticed i have constant ringing in both ears and a pulsating noise in my right ear too. My neck always feels stiff as well and the pain goes up into my head. My question is, could I have something like a brain tumor thats been growing since I was little? Is this probably just my sinus infection that never went away? (but dont they usually go away after several weeks & can they cause ringing in ears?) Or could this be rebound headaches from taking Aleve & Excedrin lately? Please let me know what you guys think, I'm getting worried.
