brain tumor?

I need help. I've been experiencing several symptoms:

First, for the past several months I've had pressure behind my right eye
Second,  Ive had a pulse in my right ear for a few weeks.
Finally,  for the past week over been experiencing stabbing pains in my head, I don't have a history of headaches nor migraines,  and I've never experienced these stabbing pains before this past week.
On 8.29 I had nitrous for the removal of a large tattoo on my back. The 29th is the same day I started having the stabbing pain in my head. But even if it's in relation to the stabbing pain it doesn't explain my other symptoms.  

Please help me. I need an idea of what this is.  

I had a ct scan today.  But if it comes back clean, what could be causing these issues?

I should add, I had the nitrous twice before this treatment and had no adverse effects.  
Also, the stabbing pain occurs for less than a min second and happens 10-15x a day.
