Hi, I am a 21 year old male, trying to find some info, because I am 90% sure I have a brain tumor, or something that is not right up there. I have had severe debilitating headaches for the past 10 months. They are relentless, it's always there, but they do change in intensity. They are also sometimes accompanied by nosebleeds. About 6 months after my headaches began, I started to develop muscle spasms. First they were only around my eyes, now they are occuring randomly all over my body. I also feel like my attention span has decreased, and I have trouble reading sometimes. I am also extremely forgetful, though I have always been forgetful to an extent. Recently, I had an MRI to find out if I might have a brain tumor and I was told that there was a polyp in my sinuses, so I am supposed to go to an ENT soon to find out what it is. What makes it even worse is that I do not make much money, have no insurance, and am now living back at home with my parents, who keep telling me to get a job, even though I am in severe pain, even as I write this post. It would be great if anyone could tell me if my symptoms are like theirs, or what all of this might be, because it has made my life extremely crappy. Please help!
