I've been having tension like headaches that are pretty uncomfortable which bring along nausea and I feel like throwing up and tonight I had it pretty bad and started panicking and I threw up, but now I can't determine if the headache made me puke or the anxiety attack. Fearing a brain tumour

Ive never had anxiety make me throw up. But I get migraines now and then, and they make me throw up. The pain is too intense... or I should say, I used to throw up from them, til I realized I had migraines and started taking anti-migraine medicine (excedrine and the like.)

Migraines can be tricky, especially if you have tension headaches. They'd feel the same at first. But the migraine is normally on one side only.  Because migraines are more than a headache, they can easily trigger anxiety symptoms.

You may want to look into it. Oh, and in answer to your final point:

Tension headaches usually stem from stress ... which in turn can cause stomach upset and sometimes vomiting.

I dealt with tension headaches for a few months (years ago) - had an MRI done and everything was fine. They gave me migraine medication which did nothing but make me feel loopy. Eventually I went to a chiropractor and after one visit I felt 1,000x better!

In your case I would mention it to your Dr. as there are Headache Specialists (M.D.s) out there who have a lot more experience in headaches that your Primary Care Dr. The Specialist may be able to offer better advice/medication, etc.

Good Luck.
