Thank you for posting your query.
All your symptoms could be related to depression/anxiety and you may not have any internal brain problem including tumor.
At the onset, you can get examined by a neurologist to look for any abnormal findings. In addition, a fundus (eye) examination can be done to exclude papilledema. If both are negative, then the chance of brain tumor is less. However, if you want to be 100% sure, you can get a brain scan done.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
