100% sure its a tumor somewhere in there
« on: March 08, 2014, 01:09:25 PM »
Ive had these symptoms for months, the only thing is that they got better for 2 weeks or so then came back a few days ago.
Headaches. They are in that area just above and across from my earhole. Kind of near that bone. I dont know if its temporal area or not. They come and it feels like something is pushing from inside. I will take an advil and then once the 4 hrs or whatever is up, it will come back. So i dont see what else it could be. How could a normal headache feel like something is pushing from the inside, sometimes come and go, sometimes throb.

Left ear: this just started happening. I get a popping in my left ear about 50% of the time when i yawn or chew. I was bouncing on a trampoline yesterday and every time i went up and down, it popped. So again, pressure changes in ear. How could it not be a tumor?

Twitching muscles... Started a few months ago... Never had it before.... Still going on.
I was treated for a sinus infection a while ago but clearly thats not what it is.

Im positive theres a tumor in my middle ear or pituary gland or something... Anyone know?

Anyway, it's not a tumor.

Twitching is caused by anxiety most likely.

Tumor headaches wouldn't really get better with meds, and woudn't just sto

The first thing that tells me it's not a tumor is that you said these symptoms went away for 2 weeks then came back. Tumors don't just decide they are going to stop giving you symptoms, then come back. If it was a tumor, the symptoms would constantly be there and get progressively worse.

I have gotten headaches where it hurts in one spot, like a sharp pain. I have also felt like my head was going to explode, or it would hurt more when I bent down. When I was younger I remember getting a headache so bad I couldn't stand up. Headaches don't equal a brain tumor. Trust me. They can be caused by stress, dehydration, neck tension, sinus/allergies, eye strain, medications, lack of sleep, etc.

As for your ear popping- my ear pops all the time. Sometimes it gets clogged and when I talk my voice sounds weird. That symptom does not equal a brain tumor in any way. If you had a tumor in your ear, it would be an acoustic neuroma (which is benign) and you would have other symptoms which I am not going to mention. You don't need to worry about this.

Twitching muscles is 100% caused by anxiety. When I was in a very anxious state a few months ago, my muscles twitched all the time. It's caused by tension and all the stress hormones going through our bodies.

I hope this helps. I have experienced many more, worse symptoms than these... in fact I wish I only had your problems. Apparently I am ok, because I have had an MRI of my brain which came back normal. Try not to worry.

I was at a paediatrician (I'm 16) a month and half ago, or so. she ordered a bunch of blood tests and everything came back good except the CK level was a little elevated, which is strange because i have leg pain aswell and sometimes get puffiness around my knees.
Anyway, thanks for the reply above. I do infact know of the acoustic neuroma. My symptoms seem to be accurate with that as well, but i don't think they are common in teens.
But last night I was sitting on the couch, and my hearing kind of faded in my left ear (side of headaches) along with about 10 seconds of ringing. This has happened quite a bit in the past months, but I didn't really think anything of it until now.
There's also little things like sometimes I have slight problems with memory, but just briefly.
I'm still sure theres something in there, but the posts do ease my mind for sure. Hopefully I can go to and ENT and find out why my ear is popping, plus the fading of my hearing and then hopefully convince my doctor to give me a CT scan (he didn't think it was necessary a few months ago…)

I randomly developed tinnitus in November, before I got my MRI. It started in my left ear. Sometimes the ringing gets loud for a few seconds, then returns to normal. It has recently spread to my right ear, just not as loud.

After my MRI came back normal, I was sent to an ENT specialist, and did a hearing test which came back normal, and pretty much chalked it up to anxiety and said sometimes ears just ring for no reason. He also had no explanation for the ear popping.

Also, I have had memory problems, as well. Anxiety can cause that because your mind is so over whelmed by what you're worrying about.

One of the worst parts of HA is that you, and I even know what acoustic neuroma even is.  Or a pituitary tumor.  I'm eighteen and have headaches every week for the last year and a half..  but never once have gotten a CT.  Doctor doesn't think I need one.  I know it's hard, but in reality at our age, we shouldn't even know what half this stuff is.
