Hi. My name isXXXXX and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
I do not believe that you have to worry about these headaches being a sign of any sort of cancer or brain tumor. As you know, millions of things can bring on headaches and your recent, successful :), efforts to loose weight are probably what is causing them.
I am glad to hear that your BP is so much better. It is possible that, if you loose enough weight, you may be able to cut back, or even stop, your BP medication. Of course, do not stop the medication on your on but, rather, only on the advice and supervision of your MD.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX good news. I can of thought myself but still wanted to consult with someone who knows these things :-) But would you mind telling what can actually cause this little tension around the eyes or actually slightly above?
I believe you headaches are probably from a minor sinus issue and your diet. From what you have posted I would not worry about the slight vertigo however, next time you see your doctor, mention it to her.....
Yes, this happens very, very seldomly and just for a few seconds. And only when laying back behind the computer, never otherwise.
Many times tension about the eyes is caused by stress, dietary changes, lack of sleep etc. It is really never a sign of something terrible like a brain tumor or cancer. You don't have to worry :)
Then I would not worry too much about the vertigo....
Concerning your wife, it is entirely possible to pick up a flu bug or virus in the summer. I would use some tylenol and let it run it's course.
I think she, too, will be OK :)
Does this make sense to you?
Sounds very good. Thanks a million Dr Rick and have a nice day!
