headache and left sided weakness
Hi, I am a 24yr old female. I have never had headaches really in my life and about 2-3 weeks ago I started feeling very tired. Then shortly thereafter I would get a dull pain the back of my head but it would go away within a few hours. Then about 8-9 days ago the headache came and never left, it is in the back of my head and it sometimes makes my ears feel hot or my scalp feel hot. It was waking me up at night so finally I went to the doctor, I am a student with no insurance so I went to a walk in clinic. They saw my blood pressure was high and that is unusual for me as mine is always low, he checked my eyes and listened to my heart, told me it was a tension headache and gave me some medicine and sent me on my way. The very next day I noticed my left eye felt swollen and my left arm felt very weak in the muscle, later my left leg muscle felt tired also. It is a feeling like when your limb awakes from being asleep and the muscle feels very fatigued.
I stopped taking the medicine because I felt the weakness could be related. It has been two days off and the weakness is persisiting. My headache is still present and very bad I also have had a fever off and on and stomach upset including nausea off and on.
Has anyone ever had symptoms such as these? I have always been in good health, workout, never do drugs, smoke, drink very occasionally, take vitamins. I have never experienced a constant headache or especially this weakness in my left side, it is not my face only my arm and leg. I am also exhausted and could stay in bed all day long.
I have had a large amount of stress since november including a legal situation and family problems but I do not feel that it could be causing these symptoms-I am worried about tumors or a stroke or something of that sort. Please if anyone has had similar symptoms and can shed light please let me know.
