This is Dr. David
it could be sinus related or allergy related.
muscle twitching can come from low potassium levels or excessive anxiety.
I am a cancer specialist.
brain tumors usually don't cause muscle twitching.
I am particularly anxious
you might need to go on allergy medications or a sinus steroid spray
it sounds like you might need treatment for your anxiety as well
I read somewhere that muscle twitching was related to a brain tumour? The twitching i've bee having is small and isolated, like an eyelid twitch.
that sounds like benign fasiculations.
and are not related to brain tumors.
but they are related to patients who have excessive anxiety.
Am I correct in thinking that most malignant brain tumours are secondary?
Oh I see
The twitching is in my arms though not my eyelids\
it sounds like you are letting your anxiety symptoms get out of control here.
you don't need to be worrying about having a cancer at your age
or primary or secondary cancers in your brain.
the twitching is from possibly low potassium or low magnesium in your system.
and also from your excessive anxiety which you need to get treated.
it is not due to a brain tumor, primary or secondary.
also if you keep reading up on brain tumors on google, this will worsen your anxiety as well.
it sounds like you have been reading up on the internet about brain tumors.
Yes i have, bad i know. My anxiety is quite severe and I always worry about the worse case scenario but my headaches aren't improving and i was worried that the twitching was a type of fit
you should see your doctors about your headaches and see if allergy medications like allegra or claritin could help
and if a steroid nasal spray could help
you might have migraines causing your headaches
or dehydration or lack of sleep
or caffeine withdraw cause your headaches.
The headaches aren't severe and i was hoping they were sinus related, I've been having a lot of pressure around my eyes and over the bridge of my nose but its just not clearing up even with the anti bioyics. Unless its viral?
could be a viral sinus inflammation
or allergic sinus inflammation.
The twitching is not a type of fit?
no, the twitching is benign fasiculations.
How long can that take to clear?
you can have fasiculations many times in your life.
they are normal.

No can I just ask if it was a brain tumour would I be experiencing anything else?
if it was a brain tumor, your headaches would be much more severe and you would have seizures or nausea or loss of motor function or difficulty walking or loss of vision
I have been having some nausea but no vomiting and eating normally
that is fine.
I am not worried about brain tumor.
I have to drive to work.
type in other questions.
I'll be back to you in a few minutes.
Ok thank you, ***** ***** recommend seeing my GP or letting this run its course
I would see your GP and see if allergy medications or migraine medications would help.
ok thank you, ***** ***** isn't severe. Also the headaches are frontal and near my temples, is that classic of sinus? I'll contact my GP When you say i don't need to worry at my age, its not unheard of someone of my age or is it just very rare?

ok thank you,just one last thing, the nausea isn't severe. Also the headaches are frontal and near my temples, is that classic of sinus? I'll contact my GP When you say i don't need to worry at my age, its not unheard of someone of my age or is it just very rare?
yes that is more characteristic of sinus headaches.
it is very very very very very rare for you to have a brain tumor.
