Random Nerve Pain All Over Body
Having nausea last 2 weeks I have nerve pain all over my body. Random headaches. And feel like there's pressure inside my head. Is it a brain tumor?
Possible not likely: Brain tumors are particularly uncommon in patients your age. Headache is a common symptom in brain tumor patients but is also seen in many other conditons, more often than with tumors. 'nerve pain' all over your body doesn't sound like a brain tumor symptom. See your doctor for a referral to a neurologist and likely for a head MRI scan to reassure your about this. ...Read more

Nerve pain all over body all the time. Anything I can do to heal nerves? I take benzo for anxiety and seems to help but not sure if it's making worse.
Interesting: When someone describes a symptom that is "all over", I usually find clues on lab work, if this is a new thing for you.

Also keep symptom journal for any daily changes. ...Read more

What other diseases can give you diabetic nerve pain throughout your body, besides diabetes? That and MS are ruled out so far.
Can produce pain on one side of the body (including the head). The clinical course may help with sorting out what is going on. Is this jolts of pain, progressive episodes of pain and are there any other symptoms besides nausea?

You didn't and No: 1) Allergic reactions don't cause "pins and needles" or "nerve pain" (whatever that means). They cause rash, itching and swelling. Whatever kind of reaction you had, it wasn't an ALLERGIC reaction. 2) Your symptoms sound nothing like MS. 3) Nobody knows what does cause MS, but "allergic" (or whatever) reactions don't. Whoever discovers the cause of MS will win a Nobel Prize in Medicine. ...Read more

Angiolipoma: An anginolipoma is a rare lesion and the normal treatment of choice is surgical removal as long as the neurosurgeon feels it can access in a reasonable fashion.
