Feeling a little weird after feeling better for a while

Haven't been on here in a little while...My last surgery was at the end of January this year - I have had two surgeries and radiation - I have a grade II Astrocytoma that can't be completely removed. I have actually felt better for many months....no seizures, not any really weird feelings, just speak a little funny sometimes and my memory is shot....

Anyhow, just the last few days I have felt pressure in my head and been out of it - like I am having the lower seizure (can't even remember what I called it before) but it is not as wild as it was before. I am having difficulty even remaining awake at work. I zone out and am looking at nothing for a while and realize that my eyes are closed. I have had more numbness also, on more parts of my face. Was just my right side before, but had some serious numbness towards the left side some (tumor is on the left side).

I am not supposed to have to get a MRI until December, but wonder if I should pay attention to these different feelings and talk to my doctor. Or should I just try to act like nothing is going on?

I appreciate any kind of input I can get.... :o)

I think you should at least call your Dr. and see what he or she has to say, it is better to be safe than sorry.

Hi, Tommybear.

I'm glad that you posted--I was re-reading some older threads and I wondered how you were doing.

I think you should call your doctor and mention these differences you were noticing. I think it's always better to check things out, even if it's only for your peace of mind. And sometimes catching things sooner than later makes correcting a problem a little easier.

Please post again soon and let us know how you are doing.

Love and blessings,

Hi Tommybear,

My threshold for random symptoms like that is very low; if your NO can't get you a stat MRI then get one at your local ER. If it is negative, then you can relax; if it is positive then you can spring in action. Just my two cents.
