Okay so almost two weeks ago I had a splitting headache that lasted for two days and then it finally went away BUT ever since I have had this horrible fullness/pressure feeling in my head and with it, episodes of intense dizziness and also lightheadedness. I'm freaking out that it's a brain tumor. It feels like it could be sinus issues, and I thought it was at first, but it's gotten BAD! I feel it right above my eyebrows, in my eyes, my nose, ears, and neck. Sometimes I feel it on the top of my head too. I'm just so scared that it's something bad. I've been trying a lot of medicines like Mucinex and peppermint essential oil but nothing is working. Some days I wake up and I'm like 'Oh! I don't really feel anything' and then like 2 hours later it hits me and I feel SO much pressure in my head and it doesn't go away. I'm terrified that it's a brain tumor but I'm also way too scared to go the doctor. It's not PAIN, thank goodness, but this pressure has me feeling like I'm going CRAZY!

Sounds like allergies perhaps and your sinuses and ears may have fluid. A quick trip to a walk in clinic they can look in your ears and nose and tell you if it looks inflamed or if there is fluid.
