I understand your concern.
Above average TSH may signify hyperthyroidism.
Further testing with free t4 and T3 is required to rule that out.
Brain tumor and aneurysm are rare conditions.
many times, they do not provide any specific symptoms.
However severe headache can be a presenting symptom.
Also need for use glasses can be a presenting symptom also.
More commonly, deterioration of the eye refractory power can cause headache from muscle straining and also the need for glasses.
Given the odds, you are at low risk for brain tumor.
I went to an optometrist and they said my eyes looked healthy but my glasses are required. Could the pressure headache be a sign of a tumor?
The brain fog is not a specific sign of tumor or aneurysm.
not a specific sign.
but yes, this can be a presenting symptom in rare cases.
When I go to the gym or am in a store I get overwhelmed because it feels like my eyes can't focus.
Sometimes I have to read over things an extra time.
This can be part of your headache syndrome.
Attention deficit is another common possibility.
Given these symptoms, a head scan with CT or MRI is recommended
That will rule out any intracerebral lesions like tumors.
If a tumor was cancerous would that show on a blood test?
no blood test is not useful for brain tumors.
Only a scan is useful.
cancerous tumors cause seizures persistent one sided headache.
Also other neurological signs like weakness will be present.
Ok, I only had the headache once.
that is very unlikely serious
I don't feel weak. I have been going to work everyday.
in case of brain tumors headaches are recurrent and frequent
Ok, thank you
do not worry
