For the past 3 months I've been having facial pressure...it doesn't hurt, it's just always there. It feels like I'm wearing glasses that are too tight on my nose, only I don't wear glasses. Sometimes the pressure goes into my cheeks and behind my eyes...everything feels tight. I thought I had a sinus tumor, but both my GP and ENT said I didn't...ENT even ran a CT scan of my sinuses for my peace of mind, and of course it came up perfectly clear. He chalked it up to sinus pressure.
Two weeks ago my DH left for an overseas business trip to a pretty scary place...and I was left here to take care of our infant. It was at that time that the face pressure moved to my head (top and right side) and the headaches started daily. Family said it was stress/tension and when DH returned it would go away. Well, DH came home two days ago and the headaches have subsided quite a bit, although not completely. But the pressure is still there!!!
Plus, I've been thinking my right ear is clogged. But I'm not sure if it really is or if my mind is making it up (it's a brain tumor symptom on Google...and yes, I know I shouldn't be googling). When I yawn or try to pop my ears, my right ear kind of sounds like there's a bit of water in it...only there's not. I haven't been sick, had a cold, sinus issues, or anything...so what else could this be?
Between the headaches, face pressure, head pressure, and now this ear thing (that may not even be real???), I'm convinced I have a brain tumor. Family says I don't and it's all stress and tension related. I'm wondering if I should go back to my GP and ask for a neuro referral....but family thinks that's a bit extreme.
