I took my son out for breakfast Saturday and he kept massaging his head non-stop complaining it felt really weird. He could not describe what "weird" felt like, but said it did not hurt like it used to before the tumor was taken out, which is  relief!  But what is this weird feeling all about?  Can anyone help me with an understanding of how this feels and what causes it?

I Know this post is from 2012, and it's now 2017, but I am a 20 yr survivor of GBM. I have severe migraines and headaches when seasons change. Too high of pressure or too low, spring, fall, winter is the worst. Luckily I have a good team of Neuro oncologist working with me. They did find something last year out side of the tumor site, also complete resection. Hope all is well??

I am post chemo, Stem Cell TP for Multiple Myeloma. I've had chemo neuropathy for years. Weather changes sunny -> rain cause my neuropathy to worsen. Some worse than others. For me, it is real.

I have Myasthenia Gravis and am Post Stem Cell Transplant for Multiple Myeloma. I have chemo neuropathy and barometric pressure most definitely affects me negatively to the point I have to use an opioid. Now, with Myasthenia Gravis I feel even more of an effect to the weather changes. In NC, we've had rain roll in almost weekly if not mulitple times in a week for the past year. When I am "well", I have zero pain and can get my housework done. I can't do much more as it is like trying to run a marathon with no training. I'm in a loop. I am a nurse and certified infusion RN and have treated folks with autoimmune disorders for over a decade & longer. I believe the weather can indeed affect  muscle/nerve fibers as I have experienced it myself.
