I could read through the details that you explained.

Since the major organs seems to be normal as discussed with Cardiologist and pulmonary physician I would ask you to remain calm now.

The next step is to think of primary headaches like migraine / tension headache. During this assessment it is important to get a CT scan brain too. I understand that you are concerned about brain tumor. I would like to say that brain tumors would present with pulsating headache associated with nausea and vomiting. The headache features does not subside on lying down or sitting. They are most often constant.

So suggest a review by physician for tension/migraine and also CT scan brain.

Let me know after his assessment.
