I've been having Sharp Pain in my head and Eye Twitching a lot of times and the eye twitching is in my left eye and I'm having vision problems and dizziness. Could it been a brain tumor? Do I need to be checked out by my doctor? Thank you so much! -Danielle.
Yes, you need to be checked out by your doctor. Although the symptoms you describe could be a brain tumor, they could and are most likely something else, something less serious. However, the only person who can diagnose your problem is a doctor - after reviewing your medical history, discussing your symptoms, and examining you in person. Unexplained head pain should always be checked out by your doctor.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

The test may be repeated and you may have other Tensilon tests to help tell the difference between myasthenia gravis and other conditions.

Creatinine can also be measured with a urine test. See: Creatinine - urine Alternative Names Serum creatinine How the test is performed Blood is drawn from a vein, usually from the inside of the elbow or the back of the hand. The site is cleaned with germ-killing medicine (antiseptic). The health care provider wraps an elastic band around the upper arm to apply pressure to the area and make the vein swell with blood. Next, the health care provider gently inserts a needle into the vein. The blood collects into an airtight vial or tube attached to the needle. The elastic band is removed from your arm. Once the blood has been collected, the needle is removed, and the puncture site is covered to stop any bleeding. In infants or young children, a sharp tool called a lancet may be used to puncture the skin and mak...
