It's hard to figure out when all this started for me. Back in December 2015 I had sinus/allergy issues with headaches and my right ear would ring and fade in/out. Made appts to see ENT MD, and allergist and had CT of sinuses. Then in January I noticed vision changes with blurry vision like I was seeing clouds on/off. My doc wanted an MRI done at that time and I wanted to see allergist and ENT doctors first. Ironically, when I saw my MD I told her, "I hope it's not a brain tumor." At that time in January I thought all my symptoms were from stopping one of my meds. Then fast forward to May and I had the MRI done on May 4th with a 5 cm size (tennis ball size) tumor to my right temporal lobe then being told to pack a bag and bring it along to see neurosurgeon at Froedtert and was admitted to hospital and prepped for my surgery on May 8th 2016.
