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

Hello, I have been having sharp throbbing pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders. This pain has been going on for a few weeks. I also have bad pain all around the top of my head. The pain occurs at night and in the morning when I wake up and usually last all day long. It may go away for a couple hours throughout the day but it does come back. Other symptoms I am experiencing is nausea, occasional tenderness, I feel emotional and vulnerable, and there is pressure in my head and I do feel it when I move it or sit still. I do not feel any pressure in my eyes or any vision problems and I do not hear any swishing in my ears. I have tried over the counter medications such as Advil, Aleve, and Excedrin migraine. But none of them work. I have also been experiencing shortness of breath in the morning for the past few days, feeling very cold before going to bed and a sharp pain going across my upper abdomen. I have gone to the doctor and he wasn’t very much help...
