Should I be worried about this? Could I have brain tumor?
Friday, Sept 23 I was doing just great when during the night I was at the movies and my lower left side of my head started to hurt. Lower left side behind my ear. My ear started to get a burning sensation and had a hard time sleeping, I couldn't sleep on either left, right, or back because it was very bothersome. I woke up with the same pain and it lasted through out the entire day and night. I also have lower back pain. Saturday like I said I woke up with the pain it was just so bothersome and I didn't have energy to do anything or even eat. I tried and put some icy hot cream on my left shoulder and took a 200mg Ibuophen, and tynelol during midnight. Sunday it went away but just a little. It still is there and tends to bother my whole left side of brain but mainly the pain is right behind my left ear right where the skull is.
No vomiting, no sezisure, no blurred vision, no memory loss, no slurred speech, no headaches, no fainting, no tingle sensations, no heart attacks.
I do feel weak, sleepy, my left arm feels a bit weak or numb, at times I feel like I want to pass out but don't, middle of my back hurts, I have three wisdom teeth that I need to take out, pain stays on left side, don't want to eat, I try but just don't really want to. My mood has been down this weekend I'm usually a debbie downer, I stress alot, worry a lot, but never felt like this.
I believe maybe I've had this issue before but was told that I probably slept wrong and from time to time I've had this feeling but it never has gotten this worse. I do get migrains from time to time not so often.
No one in my family has ever had a brain tumor or brain cancer, but I had a great grandmother who had lung and breast cancer.
Is this any symptoms of brain cancer/ tumor should I be scared? I'm very scared and worried? Please help?
