Thanks for asking your help here at HCM.

As you have described you are having bad headaches, feeling tingling and numbness etc, We need to know if there is another associated problem going on.

You have not mentioned whether you had CT scan of your brain in the past or not.

I would suggest:
1. To discuss these with your parents and Pediatrician.
2. Pediatrician needs to do your neurological and general examination, get your vision, BP checked etc
3. Get CT Scan of the brain done.

In the meantime, try simple pain-killers like Paracetamol or Codeine.

Wishing you for speedy recovery.
