Hi, i'm 16 years old, and recently I've been having horrible headaches. I've looked online at a lot of things, and thought maybe i have fibermyalgia, or a pituitary tumor. my symptoms include:
-recent decline in eyesight
-headaches
-sweating
-bags under my eyes
-blushing/headaches/sweating occur often in stressful situations or while i'm in front of a large group
-a tumor? on my head

I recently found a bump on the left side of my head, which my doctor felt, and said it was probably a benign tumor and a diameter of about 1 cm. I think that some of my symptoms reflect a pituitary tumor, so my question is:

Does the placement of my tumor fit one of a pituitary tumor?
if not..
what do you think my symptoms show?
