      Yes please, I second the notion to call your doc right away and ask for  brain MRI ASAP. My scans were still a few wks away so for 2 wks I ignored my pesky little headaches that kept coming & going,  then on a Sat nite 3am it hurts to open my eyes & look side to side. Monday morning call to doc…2hrs later Im having a STAT brain MRI…yep….3cm brain met to my Cereblum…surgery 4wks ago, 3 saps of SRS 2 wks ago…and here we are…..;We’ve got to catch brain mets fast……please call your doc. ASAP.
