Constant headaches for 10 years that are getting worse?
I've had constant headaches for 10 years that have gotten worse. I'm unable to sleep on my right and left sides because I get sharp pains in my head. Also, when I lay down flat I get head pressure and pain on the top of my head, temples, and forehead.
I went to the doctors a few weeks ago because my headaches were really bad, I had facial pins and needles, dizziness every time I looked down, and weakness in my right leg and arm. I thought I had a brain tumour. He did small neurological tests on me, checked my blood pressure, and my blood tests came. Everything was perfect, he told me it was all anxiety. The dizziness and face tingles are gone yet my headaches and sharp head pains still continue.
After the doctors, I felt a lot better. Not as much dizziness or facial tingles. Took about a week after for those to fully go away. I truly do believe I have anxiety, but that isn't the answer to my constant headaches.
My doctor does not want to do an MRI or CT Scan because he says I'm young to be exposed to radiation especially since he sees no signs of a brain tumour.
