Thread: Question about a symptom

    Question about a symptom

    Hey all
    Iíve been lurking or absent for a while and I just have a question.
    My seizure doc isnít sure what this might be either.

    I keep getting a recurring sensation of pressure in the opposite side of my head from my tumor. Itís not painful, itís uncomfortable. It is a fairly strong feeling of pressure as if someone was pushing on the top right side of my head.
    I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced anything like this since the doc hadnít heard of it.

    Not heard of that except maybe right after surgery when the nerves are coming back

    Thatís kind of what Iím getting from docs too. Itís really weird. Happens almost every day now. Guess I will just see what comes up with my scan on the 30th and go from there!
