Could increased size be contributing to my symptoms?

I wrote a couple days ago that my subarachnoid cyst has grown in size from 3x4cm to 5.2x8.6cm, you asked if I'd mentioned anything to my doctor about eye wkness and increased migraines. Yes, I did and haven't heard back yet. In addition to these symptoms I have extreme fatigue, bulge in the back of my neck, "helmet head" as I describe, a heavy head with fullness feeling, nausea, burping, and the feeling of a lump in my throat. I recently started provigil for idiopathic hypersomnulence syndrome, the doctor told me to stop taking it for a while to see what happens (maybe side effects?).

I stopped the Provigil yesterday and don't have the lump in throat feeling along with the nausea I was experiencing. However, still have the head fullness and back of neck buldge. He didn't say how long to stop the medication so will ask next time I see him. I will definitely let you know and thank you very much for your replies.
