I have a disease called pseudotumor cerebri. Means false braintumor. Your symptoms are similar to mine. This disease is painful, but not life threatening. It occurs in overweight women (and men) of childbearing years. Ask your doctor about this. Mine had to be diagnosed by a nuerologist because MANY doctors have no idea what this is and how to treat it. It is pretty rare. Good luck finding out what is wrong and fixing it!
