Hi,

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.

I have a 10 year old son that is very athletic, but is having terrible problems with constipation. After a rigorous ordeal with regards to his constipation, he lost 4-5 lbs of stool. Our pediatrician recommended Miralax BID, which causes him to have small stools, but he feels his stomach is fat or bloated and he just doesn t feel good. No nausea or vomiting. We have a friend that deals in homeopathic, kinesiology medicine and he thinks he has an overgrowth of yeast. He has a crack in his lower lip that has been very difficult to heal. We are getting very frustrated.
