    Unhappy Brain tumor?

    Ok... Here my story goes... I am a teen and for two years I have been having pains in my head. I have went to the doctors three times now but I have not had a scan. My head seems to have more pain in it when I have been playing ps3/computer alot if that helps. The doctors said that it is probably tension headaches, and they all said they don't believe I would have a brain tumor because of my age and symptoms. I have no balance or eyesight/hearing issues and I don't have slurred speech or anything like that...It is usually a throbbing feeling in my head sometimes in different spots. I just want to have your opinion on it. Thanks

    Have you had your eyes tested? If you are watching the computer a lot, or reading a lot it can put a strain on the eyes. Even if you actually see well you might be straining the eyes. I know from experience that this will cause headaches! Just a thought.....

    Do you think I have one? I am going to the doctors this afternoon to hopefully ask to be referred for a scan. I have had a dull headache for 2 days now which is bearable but extremely annoying. I don't have a very good diet either and don't do much exercise.

    You need your eyes tested. Even if your vision is "normal" your eye muscles can still be strained. Magnifying glasses with a filter may help.

    As far as a tumor goes. It is highly unlikely, typically it is severe headache, nausea, vomiting, and a poor neurological test. Seeing how you have been to the Dr. I would hope they did a basic test on you.

    Honestly eyemuscle fatigue sounds much more likely.
