I've been feeling pressure on my head and it hurts whenever I shake/Tilt it. It's been on and off for about 3months. I had an MRI last November clear.

Many considerations: Hi, I wonder who ordered the MRI? Did that doctor have an idea what he or she was looking for? Does your doctor have any thoughts for you? If the MRI is truly negative, some major issues (brain mass, bleed, and stroke) have been pretty much excluded.

Been feeling eye tiredness, and using glasses for that same issue, still passing many hours on the PC and now feeling pressure on my head, from eyes?

Probably dry eyes.: In my experience, most people who describe "tired eyes" really are complaining about dry eyes. Sitting in front of a computer for extended periods of time is probably the most common cause of dry eye symptoms. We all have a tendency to stare at the computer screen and that's what causes the problem. You can use artificial tears as often as you like when you're sitting in front of the computer and. ...Read more

Can blood tests detect brain tumors? I had one a week ago and now I'm feeling pressure on head or headache. No other problems tho I'm 17 years old

Can blood tests detect brain tumors? I had one a week ago and now I'm feeling pressure on head or headache. No other problems tho I'm 17 years old

Mixed antecedents: A week ago you had either a brain tumor or a blood test. I'll go with blood test. Now a week later you're feeling "pressure on head." Do you mean "detect" or "cause"? Either way, the answer is no. Even if a blood test somehow COULD cause a brain tumor, it would have to be an amazingly fast-growing tumor to cause symptoms after only a week. Also, you say you're 17 but your profile says 19. (?) ...Read more

See your doctor: Eye twitches can be a sign of stress, and fatigue and lack of sleep. So by itself it's benign and known as myokymia. But if your entire body is twitching you need to be seen by a doctor and see if your anxiety is making it worse or not. Go ahead and see the doctor, and this will make you feel better. ...Read more
