Oct 10, 2018 · Watching a Meningioma Brain Tumor in Brain Tumor

@lisalucier @hopeful33250
I went to the doctor today and was diagnosed with a concussion. The headaches continue so I’m supposed to limit my activity for a few days. I know this is very minuscule in comparison to what many of you are facing. I simply wanted to let you know that I did go to the doctor.

I tripped and fell again today, another accidental fall. I’m experiencing some mild concussion symptoms again (headache, dizziness) but haven’t called my doctor. It does make me think about the meningioma again.

I fell while at work. It was an accident and not at all related to any other problems. I hit my head pretty hard when I fell resulting in a concussion. I had headaches and dizziness for several weeks following that and it was during an MRI for that when the meningioma was discovered.
I hate to admit that I still haynot gone in for the follow-up to look more closely at the meningioma. I know it’s something I should do. I just keep thinking that it’s probably nothing. I know that’s probably not the best decision.

It’s very helpful reading all your responses to a mengioma diagnosis. I am 60 years old and just found out about my own diagnosis after suffering a concussion. The doctor recommended CT scan at which time they discovered the meningioma. The doctor recommended an MRI to see the exact size and location so I’m waiting to proceed with that. I’m fairly certain I will have a “watch and wait” approach and I think I’m fine with that.
