Question: worried about brain tumor symptoms


 fin1980 - Thu Dec 14, 2006 12:05 pm

Hello I am a 26 year old male and been having several issues. I have been experiencing bouts of sinius pressure and also really bad tmj. What really scares along with the bouts of sinus pressue it feels wierd or pressure where the neck and back of my head connects. I also am scared because when I go to sleep or close my eyes it feels like my eyes are rolling back or wondering around, and the sinius pressure in my eyes nose and area where my head and neck connect underneath the bone I feel pressue like the same pressue by my eyes and nose. Does this sound like a possible brain tumor symptoms or a pituarty tumor.

User avatar Hello,

Brain tumors presentation include:

- Nonspecific symptoms like headache, nausea and vomiting.

- Specific signs and symptoms are usually related to the location of the tumor.

Non of what you have described is related to known symptoms of brain tumor.

These symptoms could be related to the drugs you are receiving , the cardiac troubles and or anxiety. Paxil as well as are toprol are known to cause some neurological, emotional, cardiovascular side effects which may explain your symptoms

I advise you to follow up with your Doctor for proper management.

Best regards.
