shaky eye+ear buzzing=scared of brain tumor
Hi everyone, 25 year old male here.
I'm worrying a bit. For the past couple of days I've had a shaky left eyeball. It's not my eyelid, but really the eyeball itself. When I close my other "good" eye and wait till I get some shakes in the left one again, I really see my computer screen shaking making my eye unable to focus on something.
I've been having some occasional ear buzzing too the past weeks. And with occasionally I mean maybe once per day for a few seconds. Sometimes a dy goes by where no buzzing appears.
I'm the kind of person that easily worries about his health. And I've read some stuff about serious neurological conditions being the cause of a shaky eyeball, like a brain tumor. I'm really worried here. I remember in the past (5 years ago) I thought I had a brain tumor too. The doc made me do some simple tests like touching your nose with your eyes closed, walk foot by heel on a line, close your eyes and stretch your arms to see if you hold them at same height. When I do these myself, there is nothing wrong. But still...
I don't have nausea however (well sometimes I do, but it's not really a "I want to vomit" kind of nausea. it's very mild). I also am a bit dizzy from time to time but it's not that I cant walk normally or that I walk like a drunk.
Should I worry? Or could some very innocent things be the cause of what I feel?
Any answers would be nice. I know you're probably not doctors, but I'd still like to hear some opinions.
EDIT: by the way: there have been no cases of brain tumors in my family as far as I know. I'm also allergic to most trees in the spring giving me itchy eyes. But I've been having that for years and I can't remember having shaky eyeballs before.
