OK, but keep a watch: It is highly unlikely you have a brain tumor at your age. Although many young people get brain tumors, you most likely would have had it already, and if your tests said no, i would say that's ok, but if these symptoms persist, you might want to get other tests, like an ANA (anti-nuclear antibody) to help rule out some other disease, like lupus or rheumatiod arthritis. See your dr. For more info.

You might be developing some other neurological disease, like MS (Multiple Sclerosis), or something else entirely, or it could be no problem, so see your doctor if things get worse, and keep a note or some record if the symptoms persist.

Eventually, you might want to get an MRI, but it is expensive, so do it if and when your doctor says youneed it, and also try to get a second opinion before you decide to do it.
