    Dan, it does not sound like any type of cancer. However, if it continues or gets worse, you should tell your parents and go to a doctor for a checkup.

    It sounds like it may potentially be partial seizures. Even if that is the case - it does not follow that it's caused by a brain tumour, there are many other causes. As Brainman says - if it continues seek the advice of your doctor.

    Check with Your Doctor

    Are you still having symptoms? Is your diabetes well controlled? It doesn't sound like cancer and it would be unusual for a complication of your diabetes to present this way by I would start by talking to your primary care physician or endocrinologist.

    I know this is going to sound offbeat, but many people with Lyme disease start out with some involuntary muscle movements. Do you see "floaters"...those things that look like a hair in front of your plane of vision? If you do get to where you fully suspect Lyme disease (ask some at LymeNet) make SURE you do not waste your time on the USELESS E.L.I.S.A. test, as Lyme disables the immune response, so easily evades this test. LymeNet folks can at least steer you...otherwise...keep looking. So many things are easily managed early on.

    Dear DanJurg,
    I think it’s not brain tumor symptoms. Don’t worry.
    Here are the following Brain tumor symptoms
    Possible Symptoms of Brain Tumor
    A new seizure in an adult
    Gradual loss of movement or sensation in an arm or leg
    Unsteadiness or imbalance, especially if it is associated with headache
    Loss of vision in one or both eyes, especially if the vision loss is more peripheral
    Double vision, especially if it is associated with headache
    Hearing loss with or without dizziness
    Speech difficulty of gradual onset

    Other symptoms may also include nausea or vomiting that is most severe in the morning, confusion and disorientation, and memory loss.

    If you have any symptoms which i have mentioned above. I would like to suggest you consult a doctor.
    Good Luck.

    Hey… It might not be any cancer. It seems like dehydration, take plenty of water and consume pretty nutrition food with minimum 1500 calories. First of all take this issue to your parents, and once get check by any specialist. We always can give you a moral support but here you need some medical support; only the doctor can give. So consult the doctor ASAP.
    I am hoping nothing would be serious.
