Hello everyone, thank you for your responses I really appreciate it.
I have never been given antibiotics actually - i will mention this to my doctor.
I have had an Xray of my back and was told I had muscle spasms but they left it at that, didnt tell me where about
s or what to do about
it! the chiropractor also did a scan of my back and neck and said I did have a lot of muscle tension and I have had 4 adjustments with them but like I said, I can no longer afford to see them. I dont know if I can be referred on the NHS, I will have to ask the doctor about
cogito, I have never been given muscle relaxers but I do think that is probably what I need. I will also mention this to my GP. your comment about
your face feeling 'off' is literally how I feel. I get the 'numb' feeling but when I touch my face it isnt numb. I also get the feeling that my eye isnt working properly but when I close my other eye, I can see fine. It is so strange.
Reading back on what I have just written it seems almost ridiculous that I have gone to the doctor so many times and am still in this situation. I just find every visit so stressful as I feel like they dont take me seriously and I just end up crying every time and leaving without any help. I have seen multiple doctors too so maybe I need to change practice.
I am very stressed, I am a nervous/stressed person naturally but my Mum died almost 4 years ago very suddenly and it was extremely traumatic. I was very very close to my mum and this was probably the worst thing that could happen to me. I do think this stress could be playing a part in my situation (although during the first incident with just my eye, my Mum was alive and well at this point)
I just find it hard to know where to start in getting this resolved, I just want answers and because of what happened to my mum, I do worry about
my health so this constant feeling of being in pain and unwell it just making me so anxious and I just feel defeated. I find my symptoms so strange (the eye noise, the ear pain, ringing and pressure etc) that I find it hard to believe tension or stress in my neck or back could be causing all of this.
I feel like I am too young to be living like this. All I want to do is sleep. I have panic attacks all of the time, I have gained a load of weight and I am just so miserable.
My next plan of action is to go to the doctors next week, mention some of the advice I have got here and not leave until Im am satisfied I am going to be moving forward with either some medication or a referral.
Thanks again to everyone who has responded to me.
