Customer Question

lately I have been feeling light headed. I don't have a headache however, i do have some pain behind eyes once in a while. I also have been having bad indigestion and diarrhea.
Do I have to be worried about brain cancer?
I do drink quite a bit (around 8 beers on average a night). I am fasting currently and will be going in tomorrow for blood tests but want some peace of mind for now.

How many times did you have diarrhea?

Do you have fever or any other symptom?

No fever, I have it maybe one stool every 3-4 stools
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.

Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
The feeling can be due to different factors.
There may be dehydration, fall or changes of blood pressure, glucose levels etc.
Those can occur from dehydration following diarrhea.
It is unlikely from brain tumor.
It may also occur from anxiety or stress.
If the symptoms continue, I feel you should get an examination by doctor.
Pl take plenty of fluid to keep good hydration.
Take adequate rest.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your good health.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
