brain tumour?

Hi. I had an MRI 5 months ago that was clean (had the mri for shooting pains in head) however recently (5months later) ive had horrid throbbing in my head what's worse at nights and like a strange pulse in my head. I'm also having a weird ache in my head. I smelt atrange smells twice in one day a few weeks ago. and I sometimes have dizziness but that is rare. Most recently my right side of my body feels heavier than the right and detached. This happens every so often.

What im asking is could something have appeared (a tumour or something) on the brain in the 5 months since the MRI? Or is that not possible?

I'm just slightly concerned. Thanks .

I'm a 20 year old female.

He's not really sure what's causing them so has put me on Amitriptyline to see if they're migraines. But they're every day and more pressure than pain so I don't think they're migraines.

Re: brain tumour?

The next time you go to your dr.write down all your symptoms and tell him what is happening to you.Sounds like he is trying to find out.You had a clean mri so that's a good thing.Same thing happened to me 40 years ago.I had all the tests couldn't find anything.

Re: brain tumour?

Hi, I've just dug up my MRI results letter from November
It says:

"this lady with increasing headaches and a bony swelling in the right occipital region has had an MRI scan of the brain.

The brain itself is normal. There is a slightly prominent occipital protuberance but no bony abnormality associated with this.

I would suggest she is given appropriate acute treatments for the headaches and if they continue to be a problem that you consider preventative drugs using the treatments described in the Greater Manchester Headache Management Pathway.

There are no significant abnormalities on the scan to be concerned about. For the moment I have discharged the patient back to your care. If there is significant deterioration in the future please contact us."

can anybody tell me what this means?

I just figured it was ok as nothing sinister was found x
