I was diagnosed with a 0.5 cm large brain lesion on my left temporal, I have headache?
Hello. I’m a 24 year old female.
About 7 or 8 years ago I was diagnosed with a 0.5 cm large brain lesion on my left temporal. The doctor said it was caused by an injury and concluded that through the CT and an MRI. At the time my only symptom were constant headaches. A neurosurgeon confirmed I should not worry and should not spend a lot of time in front of the computer (at the time I barely did it) and to not stress out.
I’m an anxiety and stress prone person that has an online job, bound to her computer today.
Today, I still have those headaches, though they appear once a month and usually last for about a week. Right now, my headache has turned into a kind of uncomfortable pressure on the top of my head. At first it wasn’t painful, just annoying, but now it’s a little achy. The headache actually began as a jabbing at the back of my head, then pressure at that spot and then it settled on the top of the head.
I’m very concerned. I don’t have any other symptoms (like nausea, vomiting, seizures, vision problems – I checked my eyesight and my vision field last December, turned out fine). Thank you.
This headache is almost sourced from your neck.. May be your way of sitting in front of the. Computer for long periods..
Due to spasm of the cervical muscles.
Other possibility is hyper or hypotension which can be ruled out by regular blood pressure checking..
its been almost 7-8 years that you were diagnosed for that lesion .
I suggest you to get a recent MRI / CT scan of the brain done to assess the lesion-whether it has increased and whether it is the cause of the recent headache.
It also can be a cluster headache.
Does not seem to be related to the neck,or cervical vertebra.
Headache in the back of the neck is usually related to cervical problems , top head headache is usually hypertension , i do not think your brain lesion is related
Sitting in front of the computer will cause you pain due to prolonged concentration and looking at the computer screen , beside like my fellows said, ur neck is in an incomfortable position for a long time.. try to make a better positioning , take a break once ana while..
