FROM OUR EXPERTS
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 ear is divided into three parts: 1. The outer ear, meaning the part of the ear you can see on the side of the head plus the ear canal leading down to the ear drum 2. The middle ear, meaning the ear drum, ear bones (ossicles) and the air spaces behind the ear drum and the mastoid cavities 3. The inner ear, meaning where the nerve endings are for the organs of hearing and balance (equilibrium). It is the middle ear that causes discomfort during air travel, and this is so because it is an air pocket inside the head that is vulnerable to changes in air pressure. Normally, each time (or each 2nd or 3rd time) you swallow, your ears make a little click or popping sound. This is the moment that a small bubble of air enters your middle ear, up from the back of your nose. It passes through the Eustachian tube, a membrane-lined tube about the size of a pencil lead which connects the back of the nose with the middle ear. The air in the middle ear is constantly being absorbed by its membranous linin...
Introduction The ear is the organ of hearing and balance. It has three parts: the outer, middle, and inner ear. The outer ear collects sound waves, which move through the ear canal to the tympanic membrane , commonly called the eardrum. When incoming sound waves strike the tympanic membrane, it vibrates like a drum, and converts the sound waves into mechanical energy. This energy echoes through the middle ear. The middle ear is a complex structure filled with air that surrounds a chain of three tiny bones. These bones vibrate to the rhythm of the eardrum and pass the sound waves on to the inner ear. The inner ear is filled with fluid. Here, hair-like structures stimulate nerves to change sound waves into electrochemical impulses that are carried to the brain, which senses these impulses as sounds. The inner ear also contains three semi-circular canals that function as the body's gyroscope, regulating balance. The Eustachian tube, an important structure in the ear, runs from the middle ear to ...
