Schwannoma or Neurofibromatosis Tumor

Yesterday I was dx with Schwannoma Tumor. It is causing me a lot of pain.
My brother has Neurofibromatosis Tumors all over his body. He has had them for about 20 years. From what I have read Schwannoma and Neurofibromatosis is basically the same but different.

I have one between my neck and shoulder. I have had numbness in my legs arms and legs for about a year. All of sudden this tumor shows up. They do a biopsy on the tumor and now I am in severe pain. I can barely lift my arm sometimes.

Does any one have a Schwannoma Tumor? Has anyone had one removed?

These are nerve tumors. They grow on the nerves.
