Thank you for posting your query.

The chances of you having a tumor or aneurysm is very low.

Headaches, as you are having, are very common, and are commonly due to migraine. In this condition, headaches may get triggered by various factors, including not drinking enough water.

I would suggest you to meet your doctor, and start preventive medications for migraine to stop the recurrence of headaches.

If symptoms persist, you may get a brain scan done.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
