Is this consistent with brain tumor symptoms??
« on: June 09, 2014, 01:52:08 PM »
Last fall around November I had headaches that wouldn't go away for around 2 weeks I went to two docs and both weren't really helpful and said they could do a scan if I wanted but didn't really think it was necessary. The headaches eventually went away and I was not Gavin any other problems. Fast. Forward about 3 months and the same thing returns. Another 2 week episode of headaches. They as we'll went away and I went on with my daily life. Well they're back again now. It's an off and on pain at the back of my head around the top of my neck. It's dull feeling and feels better when I massage it. I also have a spot about middle left on my head that hurts some. I guess basically what I'm wanting to know is can brain tumor symptoms completely vanish for months and return. I have had two nose bleeds in this time period. And would I be having other symptoms by this point?

I'm obviously not a doctor - but it sounds like stress/anxiety headaches.  I get that ache at the top of my neck all of the time - usually when I'm feeling especially stressed and yes - massaging it does help.  The biggest indicator that nothing serious is most likely not going on is the fact that the pain has come and gone.  I really would have to think that if it was something bad it would continously get worse and worse.  Hang in there!

I don't think it's a brain tumor. But if you think a ct scan would help you to feel more at ease then go to your dr and ask for one.

I had daily headaches for months and got an MRI and it wasn't a brain tumor. I was so scared.... mine was tense shoulder muscles and low iron. I am pretty much headache free now. good luck!
