    Get doctor advice, don't Google too much in the Internet, it will worry you and people always put bad experiences. Get her to,the doctor for tests etc. unlikely to be brain tumour. Maybe stress, migraines, lack of vitamins, could be anything, how old is she? Any other health issues. Sure she be fine.

      She is young she will be fine, try not to worry, but insist the doctors do tests for peace of mind. If worried turn up at hospital with her and demand answers! Good luck x

    Hello Thomas im not a Doctor mat ebut my mum is in her early 50's and for about a decade she has suffered with miagrane they come and go but some of them are so bad it leaves her numb on one side or fully paralised its quite scary the only thing that helps is Miagraleve the symptons she gets sound very similar to those that your describing. although May and Chika are right and you should seek doctors adive just to be perfectly safe it is unikley to be a brain tumour. Sure it is all going to work out mate.
