What does pressure on the center top part of his brain accompanied with nausea , dizziness , loss of appetite , sleepiness indicate ?

my husband has had a pressure on the center top part of his brain for about 3 years now, accompanied with nausea , dizziness , loss of appetite , sleepiness. What possible conclusions can this lead to? He s had MRI, CT Scan both neg, went to ENT for allergies (didn t get better) he had 2 Spinal punctures and they found slight meningitis, but the neurologist said it wasn t anything to worry about. These tests were done a year ago and he s worse now then he was then, and I m getting worried! We no longer have insurance, but I want him to get better, any suggestions on what his diagnosis could be?

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
You should be repeating the CT Scan or MRI head to rule out any Brain Tumor or if to see if the Meningitis is completely cured. If it is meningitis and is completely not cured, there are chances of his symptoms recurring back. The cause for this has to Found out like TB Meningitis or something else as treating the cause will definitely help. If TB Meningitis is confirmed, he will have to take Medicines for 6 Months at least for complete cure. Take him to a Neurologist for a second opinion at the earliest.

I wish him Good Health, Good Luck.
