Hi, I have had swelling and pressure on the left bottom side of my head. It is also tender to the touch. I am also having dizziness, vision problems in my left eye and balance problems. I went to the doc this past week, he immediatly sent me for an MRI and now we are awaiting the results. I was diaognosed with putiaitory malanoma about 5 yrs ago. A small leison was found and seemed to be the cause of my missing periods and breast milk production 7 yrs after the birth of my chilren! I have not had the swelling etc. before. I am a little nervous about the results. Anyone else have these type of symtoms?
Yes, I had these symptoms and many more from a muscle problem in my upper back, neck and going into the back of one side of my head. It was hard to find the cause of, but not serious. I hope your results come out fine, please let us know.

I revceived my MRI results. I have a nasty infection in the sinus cavity and was diagnosed with veinous angioma, which is swelling of the veins. The doc put me on major antibiotics and says that they just watch the swelling to make sure there are no changes. IF the vision and headaches are not completly gone by Monday they will send me to a nuerogolist. Just giving an update.
yes I also have simular symptoms like yours. ALOT of symptoms. Here goes: My right eye stings occasionally and feels iritatted, i'm not sure if just that eye is causing the vision problems though (like whenever I am really anxious I notice color changes and double vision) I also get speech problems a little, I get a little bit of neck stiffness, and my neckbone sort of pokes out more than usual. My ears crackle a little after I yawn, or sneeze. I get pressure on my right side, but not swelling. It seems like I have balancing problems a little too, but it seems to get better when I put a back strap on. But usually all these symptoms get better after relaxing and relieving stress and anxiety. You shouldn't stress or worry because it is bad for your physical and mental health. -Karen
