Brain fog and Headache back right side and top of head with occasional tingling on top of head during day for 4 weeks. Told it was due to anxiet. Ok?

May not be anxiety: Anxiety can produce tension headache and difficulty concentrating ("brain fog"). But, if headache continues in location you describe for 4 weeks, it is possibly something more serious. Please consult your doctor, or a neurologist. They can recommend an MRI, EEG, or brain scan to rule out any serious issue. If all tests negative, consider CBT psychotherapy to treat your anxiety. Get help please

Head tingling on a daily basis with headaches and some inner ear pain with occasional wet feeling. Any thoughts to what this may be?

Head tingling on a daily basis with headaches and some inner ear pain with occasional wet feeling. Any thoughts to what this may be?

Headache and anxiety: I'm sorry you're having these symptoms and it's very difficult to determine the true cause without examining you. It would appear that with the headaches and the tingling this may be anxiety more than anything else at your age. You have a feeling of pain and wetness which I do not understand. The possibility of tempormandibular joint pain giving rise to your ear pain also exists. See an ENT doc.

Pain in left side of back of neck when sitting, radiating to head and shoulder, occasional tingling. Xray shows no bone issue, but pain can be severe.

See a Spine Surgeon: You may need further evaluation if symptoms persisting. You may need MRI of your cervical spine -- which may pick up other problems not seen on xray which may then identify the cause of your symptoms.

I have brain fog, sinus issues and occasional tingling in my head. I'm terrified it's a brain tumour, does it sound like one?

I have brain fog, sinus issues and occasional tingling in my head. I'm terrified it's a brain tumour, does it sound like one?

No...: ...but there are two considerations here: One can't say with 100% certainty that it isn't; BUT: The likelihood that your symptoms ARE due to a tumor are exceedingly remote because brain tumors are exceedingly rare. (Out of all the conditions that people can come down with, why do they always leapfrog over all the common things straight to the worst-case scenario?)

Can Claravis, 80mg/day, cause tics or tingling in face, lower lip? Happens infrequently & is the only side effect besides nausea. Should I worry?

Not from claravis: You can stop tretinoin while on Claravis. Be sure to take with food for best absorption. Avoid vitamin pills because the vitamin A (different in food) increases side effects. Most common side effect is dry skin, dry lips, dry eyes & nose.

I have occasional lightheadedness, and on other occasions I feel a head-rush similar to an adrenaline rush. I also sometimes have a tingling sensation in my feet and hands. Should I be worried about brain tumors or ALS? Or is this anxiety 101?

I have a tingling in my head since Saturday.

Okay....: Unfortunately, your question is only the beginning, not the end. Hearing this, a doctor would then take a detailed history in an effort to construct a differential diagnosis. Your statement is so nonspecific that one can't even generate a list of possibilities. That's something that properly ought to take place in a doctor's office.
