Question Recent thumping in the R ear +pain in L elbow + L thumb twitching

Hi, I had my GBM4 (left temporal parietal occipital area) resected in April 2011. I had standard radio and chemo treatment and am on multiple vitamins. Completed Budwig program in Malaga (Spain). My last MRI in July 2013 was clear. Shortly after my last good MRI, I developed (1) twitching in my right eye; (2) thumping in my right ear (intermittent, short, lasting a few seconds then subsiding, everyday); (3) pain in the neck, both sides; (4) pain in my left elbow, lasting for 10 minutes to an hour, massage helps with controlling the pain; (5) twitching in my right thumb (several times a day, not concurrent with the elbow pain, but sometimes coinciding.
My GP said that it neuralgia of the right side of my head, possibly due to my brain tumour resection.
Is it likely to be a new tumour on the right side of the brain this time? I have no other symptoms so far (olfactory, paresis, lack of balance), only neurological ones. Disturbingly, before my first GBM occurrence, I had the same symptoms, but with headaches and olfactory hallucinations. This time, only the above (no others, no headaches etc). Any thoughts? Can these neuro symptoms occur in isolation, on the opposite part of my GBM tumour, and be unrelated to GBM? My MRIs were really good all the time and the tumor was cut out completely in 2011.
Thank you!

This really is so potentially serious that it is WAY beyond the scope of a bulletin board.
See your specialist.
