Doubt a tumor: Your description is not one of signs from a brain tumor, and in fact, more likely represents a different problem. Fibromyalgia could indeed cause sleep disturbance, pain and aching over all 4 body quadrants, and would not be associated with abnormalities in the above tests. Many physiatrists and rheumatologists focus on such issues, and a number of medications can help you.

First please have a complete physical exam by Doctor to know if you have an illness. Please see a Clinical Psychologist with expertise in multiple types of psychotherapy for a diagnostic evaluation and for help. This will help you to know if you need medication from a Psychiatrist. Sleep is vital - you may need a sleep study prescribed by your Doctor
