Symptoms of pain in fibromyalgia and brain tumor

It is quite difficult to identify the actual cause of certain chronic conditions. Some symptoms can be common among various disorders. It is very important to diagnose it properly.

There are many research works going on to identify the cause of chronic conditions and reason for unexplained pain in the body.

People experience some common symptoms of pain in both fibromyalgia and brain tumor. That is the reason why it becomes difficult to diagnose.

You can seek help from health experts to know the procedure to do a safe diagnosis. Some of the medical conditions are strange, it is difficult to identify why a person is affected with fibromyalgia or brain tumor but another person is not.

The major symptom of brain tumor is considered to be head ache. This head ache can be due to various reasons and it will be misleading to conclude it directly as an effect of brain tumor or fibromyaligia.

What are the risk factors behind abnormal headaches?

If a person is having continuous headaches, it is highly advisable to go for a checkup. Sometimes headaches can be an outcome of fibromyalgia pain and strain in the body.

It might be a bit challenging to identify the exact cause if the pain is due to fibromyalgia. Severe headaches can also be because of brain tumors.

Though this is not quite common for all the individuals, this is not something that can be ignored. There are also few rare cases where fibromyalgia and brain tumor coexist in an individual. In such situations people should be very careful about their health condition.

Not all the people take head ache seriously. Some of the health problems when identified during the earlier stages can be easily rectified or suppressed.

Brain tumor is one such problem that can be easily cured if identified during the initial stages. Though cure might be difficult in some of the cases, the effect of the tumor can easily be reduced with the help of various treatments that are available.

In order to undergo prevention method or to do an early detection of the disease, deep understanding about the risk factors of brain tumors is required.

Some doctors consider brain tumor to be one of the rare diseases that affect an individual. It is not quite common among people but, the fact is that brain tumors can sometimes cause complications if not diagnosed or treated at the right time.

Possible reasons for brain tumor and fibromyalgia

Technology can be a boon in some cases but for some people it can also be a tragedy. Some research say that using cell phones for a longer period can cause severe headache and can also lead to further complications like brain tumor.

It is believed that people who use cell phones are exposed to lots of radiation. The radiations directly affect the brain cells and lead to unexplained problems in the body.

One such problem is suspected to be brain tumor. Though this factor is still debatable among various experts and health professions, it is the duty of every individual to take care of their health.

There are some alternatives available where we can use the cell phones with headsets that will not have direct impact over the brain.

Another possible reason discussed for people to have brain tumor and fibromyalgia is hereditary reasons or family reasons.

Though it is not a common scenario seen among the people, there are also families where brain tumor runs throughout the family.

Even there have been cases where brain tumors affect people from one generation to another. Some researchers are carried out to understand the genetic factors behind brain tumor.

From researches we have a confirmation so far to say that there is a risk involved. We don’t have a clear confirmation that it will definitely affect the individuals for whom there is already a family member suffering from it.

Symptoms common in fibromyalgia and brain tumor

There are some symptoms that are common among brain tumor and fibromyalgia. For health experts and doctors, these symptoms are important to understand more about the disorder and provide right medication.

For most people headache is considered to be one of the commonly seen symptoms in both the conditions.

But apart from, that there are also several other symptoms that can act as a disturbance to the affected individuals. Some of the common symptoms are discussed below:

Headache

Pain in the head region is quite common in people who have any chronic condition. In fibromyalgia a widespread pain is experienced.

For people who have other problems like brain tumor, headache can be regional based on the affected region.

Fibromyalgia individuals usually experience headache throughout the day and that can also be an outcome of stress and strain.

In the case of brain tumor, the headache experienced can occur suddenly with intense pain and at times it may be normal.

There have been cases reported by doctors where patients had brain tumor but they did not have any symptoms of head ache.

Sleep disturbances

It is one of the common symptoms seen in all the individuals who have fibromyalgia. In patients who have brain tumor this can be a symptom because, a small strain to the tumor region can cause severe headache.

This can prevent them from getting a good sleep. Sometimes people also wake up due to severe headache.

In the case of fibromyalgia it is still a question on whether sleep problems complicate fibromyalgia or it is fibromyalgia that is creating sleep problems.

Mood problems and depressions

For any people with health disorder, mood problems and depressions are common. Moods play a vital role in dealing with body problems.

Due to the suffering the patients undergo, depression is created thus leading to further complications in the body. Concentration is another thing that gets affected due to problems in mood.

Depressions and mood problems are usually not considered to be big problems in front of the actual symptoms of pain and headache.

Considering the effect of mood problems, it is necessary to control the depression level to see a good improvement in the medication that an individual undergoes.

  • For years many doctors have been diagnosed me with everything but none of them were right. I don’t know if anyone else has a buzzing problem in their head. Sometimes it’s so loud that I can’t take it. I’m going to see a Norologist in May and I hope that he can figure out what is causing the buzzing or is it part of the fybromyalgia symptoms.
