Headache for a week?

I've had a headache for a week straight that feels kinda like a tension headache mixed with an ice pick headache and it really concerns me because I have a fear of a brain tumour ?? I never usually get headaches which is also really concerning me and my headache doesn't seem to fit into any categorie of type of headache which is also really scary It has also lasted for a week ?? Is this normal ?? It's really painful and I just want it to go away My other symptoms are

- blurry vision


-smelling things that aren't there



-memory problems

-mixing/slurring my words.

I went to the doctor at the start of this week about the smelling things that aren't there and the dizziness and I said to her that I was scared about a brain tumour she gave me a nuerlogical test and said there was nothing wrong with me and referred me to a psychologist. I also got my eyes tested and he didn't say anything about a tumour. I'm just really worried because I didn't tell the doctor about the headaches or nausea that are there from when I wake up until I go to sleep and seem to be getting worse ?? Do you think I have a brain tumour ?? I'm so scared

I have the same thing. Headache mostly in the pm for about one week straight ( just taking tylenol daily). . I also have blurry vision, nausea and dizziness. I am curious, do u suffer from migraines? I had them before never like this but I do get visual auras from migranes. I had this kind of headache before after I had my son, I wonder if my hormones are all screwed up ( symptoms started after I got off birth control Ifive months ago) with increased anxiety but now I had about 100 symptoms, some resolved but now it's this headache/ blurry vision and ongoing shaky dizziness. I haven't slept good in weeks and now I am on new meds so it's so hard to figure out what the hell this is. Going through all the doctors appointments as well. Let me know if they come up with anything for you.
