A few months a go I began to feel a slight tingle in a few of my fingers, over the next couple of weeks it spread to my whole hand and is now constantly there. I than began to have headaches and now also feel like my forehead is swolen or somethings all the time. The headaches are usually occur when I'm tired. The last couple of weeks my tailbone has been very sore especially after exercise. I saw the doctor previously when my hand begun and he said it was carpal tunnel disease. I got a nerve test amd that wasn't the case. I was told to come back if it didn't get better. It hasn't and I'm getting headaches now. I am 15 years old. Could it be a brain tumour or something serious or am I stressing too much. Please help me I'm really scared to tell my parents because I don't want to go back to the doctor and get diagnosed with something serious. Do you know of any diseases that cause these symptoms? 

Ps I have my bite out of allignment and have seen on the internet this may cause the headcahes and numbness. I have been grinding my teeth for a few years now both at night and throughout the day.

      Jerks when in bed and asleep are normal.

      If you have a dog, whatch it when it is asleep, they suffer jerks and actually sometimes look like they are running

      With regards your spine while sleeping, if your bed is over ten, twelve years old you may need a new mattress, just a suggestion. I have a disability and I have a Memory Foam mattress, the bed I had before was twenty years old and my Physio advised a new mattress or bed as the bed was causing me quite a few problems.

    You may be stressed and your GP would need to clarifly that with you.

    In our mid teens you will be taking sports and you may have tugged a muscle in your   hand or wrist ,hopfully that will clear. This may be caused by Anxiety 

    With regard your ccocyx the pain their could be caused by age underdvelopment and sitting on hard surfaces like wooden seats, Also check your posture not sitting properly may hurt your Tail

    With regard your Headaches have you had your eyes checked, The population in the UK get a subsidised eye test once or twice in two years. Discuss that with your Parents the Opticion is a good idea if suffering headaches, You may be ok, although give it a go.Put your mind at rest

    Hi Joseph...yes the bite out of alignment can the headache, etc. Next, you are too young to be on this medicine...please confide in your parents.

    Believe me , you are ok  and nothing bad will happen to you. And the  celexa has a lot of side effects....including what you have..you should have your doctor wean you off slowly...show your parents my answer here;   ask for help-- let them know you are scared...and you'll be ok.

    .....take care!!
