I have been having tension headaches and dizziness the last couple of weeks which I originally put down to stress and anxiety. My wife just had an ectopic pregnancy on our first and needed emergency surgery so its been a rough time of late. I was having chest pains and headache around this time and went to the ER. All xrays, ultrasound and bloodwork was fine. I was also having groin pain and pain around my genitals and lower back mainly on left side. My family doc gave me a prostate exam and gave me sulfatrim for prostatis which seems to be helping with that. This all started about 3 weeks ago. Since my ER and family doctor visit the headache has remained. Its not debilitating but has been fairly constant tension, dizziness and foggy feeling. I had been hoping it would just go away but it has not. Although Tylenol Ultra for headaches has really helped in the last couple of days. I only just discovered these type. Regular tylenol were not helping before this. Over the last few days I went on google to see what the symptoms might mean and alas I found myself reading about brain tumors. After reading about these symptoms such as morning nausea and weakness and numbness on one side i now feel myself getting all these symptoms. Although I have not had actual vomiting nor have i fallen over. I will be going back to my family doc as the ER did not do a CT scan even though i told them i had a bad headache. They just looked in my eyes and done like a test having my eyes follow a moving pen. I am now just wondering if its all in my head or been caused by anxiety as thinking and reading what it could be makes it worse. I had a similar episode a number of years ago and after various inconclusive tests they said it could be fibromyalgia but i never really bought that. I am a 32 year old male.
