neurology update...
« on: March 10, 2014, 02:18:12 PM »
So after 2-3 weeks of forehead headaches... I've been to my gp, ER Dr, eye Dr, and today the neuro. Not one of these drs thought I need a brain scan including the neuro.

the neuro said its either migraines or sinus issues and to see the ent. It reassured me that he said "you don't have a brain tumor", but can he confirm that without a brain scan?

he said I don't have the type of headaches that come with brain tumors and no other symptoms. I hope he's right. I wish I had an MRI *sigh*

would anyone else be satisfied with this?

Yes, I'm a huge HA sufferer, but I'd be satisfied with this explanation.  I guess you can either see an ENT or wait it out and see if it goes away.  Many people get head aches for a while and then they just disappear.  Are your sinuses bothering you, it could be that?

I had the same thing told to me, I had forhead headaches for the same amount of time. The doctor told me it's either sinuses or stress and likely the stress, brain tumours don't cause that kind of headache ever and he sees a brain tumour once every 10 years, trying to let me know how rare they actually are.

Yes, I have sinus issues and horrible allergies. Hopefully the ent will have better answers for me. I just want an MRI for peace of mind but all drs said I don't need one. The pain has been better the last few days...but there is still a "sensation" across my forehead that is very hard to explain

Considering your only symptom is a headache across your forehead, I would be fine with the doctor's explanations. That sounds exactly like tension. I really don't think you need an MRI... it would be a waste of time and money. If your doctor thought you needed one, they would have ordered one. They deal with this stuff every day. You just need to trust their judgement.
