Usually nothing bad: This description is typical of a sinus problem. You could have a new or chronic sinus infection. It could also be due to excess fluid production in the brain called pseudotumor cerebri or idiopathic intracranial hypertension. Mri is standard in the work up. Brain tumor is least likely- a common fear and misconception.
