Thank you for posting your query.

In view of recent worsening of headache and other neurological symptoms, we need to do an MRI of brain to rule out the recurrence of the tumors that you had in the past, or a new unrelated problem such as brain ischemia (lack of blood flow to the brain) or a demyelinating illness. Both these conditions can be confirmed or excluded with an MRI of brain.

Please consult a neurologist for evaluation and opinion.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
