Because just having problems has become so normal, I just don't know when I should worry about
My numerous doctor appointments over the summer started in mid-June when I went in because I've been having a really bad left-sided headache for 5 days. Sometime during those 5 days my left eye started to really bother me. I was actually checked for Bell's Palsy and lyme (2nd time). As it turned out the CT scan showed nothing. I was told it was a migraine and I was put on a short round of a medication. Then, I was put on something I shouldn't have been put on.
Just a couple of weeks ago I started developing memory problems: forget what I'm saying in the middle of saying something, forget where I'm going, can't recall things I know, generally spacey and rather slow, can read something over and over and over and still not understand it at all, etc. I'm tired all the time and can't stay up too much past 8 (9 seems to be the latest). Today, I was sitting at the computer about
to start working on hw when my head jerked forward and I dosed off or something worse happened - I'm not really sure, it was rather quick but when I came around it scared me cause I didn't really know what happened or why.
Of all my problems, I just want the head stuff to go away - it's scary. However, I don't know the difference between something minor and serious.
*can't voluntarily close my eye, starting to lose my hearing, left side of my face felt like it was vibrating (happened only once), and there's the tremoring from the head
