headache, nausea, seizure?

Hi, I have been having headaches and "mental fog" for a while, but recently nausea too. However, the scariest symptom is extreme sleepiness during the day where I will have to lie down and instantly fall asleep for a few minutes. Then when I wake up with a throbbing headache that doesn't go away. If you don't shake but you lose consciousness/control is that a seizure? My dad says it all sounds like a classic migraine but I'm worried it's something more serious like a brain tumor. I think it's because one of my best friends who was only 25, always seemed in perfect health died of a brain tumor last January Plus I am a worrier and use my cell phone and wi-fi computer a lot! My doctor ordered me a CT scan next week just to be sure, but wondering if I need different tests like MRI? Help/advice/experience/reassurance needed please!

faith, let your doctor worry about ordering the MRI if needed. he/she won't be shy or overly cautious about doing so if needed. until then, do what you can to relax and be comfortable.
