I do not:
Think you can determine if headaches are "frontal lobe" in nature. If you mean headaches in the front of your head the most common cause is sinusitis! The loss of appetite/nausea are probably UNRELATED!
In any case at age 25 these are most likely NOT serious complaints...seek the advice of your PCP (primary Care Provider) and BTW get your eyes checked as well!

Not a critical issue: Not unique for some post-traumatic headaches to occur exactly at site of injury, but in other cases, may be bilateral like tension events, or unilateral like migraine events, which could fluctuate side to side. Headaches do not always react logically, and location can be very false localizing. ...Read more

Possible, not likely: Calcifications in and around the brain can come from many causes -- knowing more about the history of your calcification would be helpful at answering your question. Most would not cause headaches, and would be unlikely to cause "brain fog" or word finding troubles unless it is causing seizures. Medications are probably the most common cause of the symptoms you mention. ...Read more

Check EEG: Right frontal AVMs can produce peduncular hallucinations due to seizures that may worsen with Geodon (ziprasidone) (which lowers the seizure threshold) Methylphenidate also lowers the seizure threshold. (as does ECT) Paranoia may respond to seizure meds if due to sub clinical seizures. (Interictal seizure activity may be difficult to see on the EEG if the frontal lobe lesion is near the under surface. ...Read more
