    go to a doctor. That could defeinately be a brain tumor but it might just be extreme anxiety. But you need to see a doctor. Please keep me updated.

    Try and get an MRI to rule out more severe conditions liek MS, chiari, the tumour.....and then go onto the lessors ones with blood tests for thyriod, prenacious anemia...etc etc these symptoms can be alot of different things. I myself got the same symptoms and got the chiari mentioned before and I was in first year uni so I knwo the pain of having somethign wrong thru those hard years.

    Re: PLEASE HELP!!! could I have a brain tumor?

    dr's can be like that alot unfortunatly that means alot of leg work for us to find one who isn't an idiot. It only took my 6 yrs to get a diagnosis and by that time the spinal damage was already done......if they had done an MRI 6yrs ago I woudl probaby have a lfie right now. All I can really say is hang in there and don't let it get to u as hard as it is because they are idiots most of the time. U know ur not lying and just keep remebering it....I was made to start doubting myself that I was just faking it and I'm a mess now cause I refuse to go to drs.....I would try goign to the ER they might put u in for observation and that coudl behelpful.

    Re: PLEASE HELP!!! could I have a brain tumor?

    Trust youcollapsing and having tremors and all of the other symptoms you posted CAN NOT be stress related there is no way. Go see a doctor and get a CAT scan immediately. If you can't stand up that is very very bad and would never be stress related. plus a doctor that specializes in the kidney would have no idea what the symptoms and stuff are for a tumor or something else in your head. Go see a reall doctor fast, if it worsens and worsens you REALLY need to see a doctor. Look up brain tumor symtoms on a search engine and you match like every single one.

    Re: PLEASE HELP!!! could I have a brain tumor?

    can u get maybe get a friend or get a taxi to take u to hospital? once ur in ER ur mum might realise that it is more serius then she thought. She's probably scared and trying to down play it because of the fear...flu is easy brain problems cause alot of stress, sounds like she is doing abit of a protective manuevor so she doesn't have to face the truth. unfortunaly its detrimental to ur healht so ur goign to have to look for other avenues like ur friends. Also I know this probably osunds stupid to say but ur goign ot have to relax a tad if possible....otherwise u'll make urself sicker then u alreayd are. Just keep remebering there are other possibilites and some way less severe and very managable....I'v been sick all my life so nothign bothers me that much anymore...I even got over having a brain malformation pretty quickly....my motto is if its goign ot happen its goign to happen and its no use making things worse, I gotta concentrate on getting better by staying calm....I know that sounds like alot in ur situation and almost impossible to do but it can be very helpful....take a deep breathe and take stock of the situation and hopefully things will start to run smoothly.

    Re: PLEASE HELP!!! could I have a brain tumor?

    Could it be a pseudotumor cerebri? My daughter has that. She sufferes from daily headaches and nausea. . Her H/As are concentrated in the ffront of her head . You can go back and read my previous posts about her. Bending over makes it worse and she would get numbness and tingling in her feet. Her balance was horrible and she was running into the walls. I thought thyroid or MS too.
    good luck,
    Bonnie
