I was wondering if anyone has any ideas if this could be ON I’m getting a little worried.
It began 2-3 weeks ago with numbeness in my cheek and then it moved to my left eye, It feels as if my eye lid (upper and lower) is heavy and swollen but everything looks ok. I have blurred vision but if I double blink this normally clears, and I also feel like I have loss of vision in the left eye, mostly things just don’t seem so bright. My eye just feels swollen this comes and goes but is mostly there.
I stuggle with changes in light, I went to the cinema last night and felt as if I was drunk when walking into the light, this was scary, lasted a few minutes. When talking to my friend I felt like I was zoning in and out and I didn’t really have a clue what I was on about some of the time.
I get an aching pain but not usually in the eye it’s normally in the eyebrows, temples, top of head and ears. I also feel like my ears are blocked and the bridge of my nose feels as it it’s block (no runny nose or anything)
It basically feels like I have the flu but in my head, without a runny nose. Have headaches but these seem to come and go quickly.
I went to my doctor who thinks I have congestion in my head and has given me some eye drops and told me to put my head over a steaming bowl of water, and to go back in a week if things don’t improve.
I have mentioned MS to my doctor as my chiropracter recommeded MRI scans to check for MS. He doesn’t think I have MS and has only ordered a lumber, sacral & cervical MRI which I don’t have until October. This is due to ongoing back ache and stiffness, pins and needles in hands and feet and also heavy legs, and some clumsiness and weakness in my left arm.
I can now feel my other eye is feeling the same.
Sorry if this is a simple (long) question, but I feel as if no one else understands every one thinks I’m being dramatic and I’m ok really. if only they knew.
