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

I have looked on the internet when my head is not too bad but could not find any information rega...
