Many weird things on.
Odd sensation on left side of face started MONTHS ago. It only happens when I wash my face. Shooting electric like type sensation is best way I can describe it. I blew it off. @ routine obgyn visit, I asked doc about it. She brought up Trigiminal neuralgia and made me promise to check into so I made appointment with GP.
In the interim, I had a routine eye exam. During dilation, it was discovered I have an enlarged optic nerve in my left eye. Eye doc sends me to opthomologist neurologist.
At that appointment, He saw the swelling, but said it was simply a benign condition and called it pseudopapilledema. That same afternoon I had appointment with general practitioner. She's concerned because they're both on the same side of face and to add to my fear, while examining my eyes, she noticed my eyes weren't working together when she had me follow her scope to my nose. so, she calls the doc I saw that morning and he said nothing to worry about because it was this Pseudothing and that my eyes probably weren't working properly from that mornings dilation. GP, doesn't by it and is sending me to get an MRI.
Another weird thing is that I have DRENCHING night sweats. I soak the bed, pillow, covers to the point we have to change sheets and I have to change clothes. I've been blowing that off cause I'm 42 and thought I was going thru "the change" but doc says no, I'm too young for that and even if it were premenaposal night sweats, it wouldn't be drenching.
Can all this be related? Or just odd coincidences? GP ordered full blood work up too. Asked about family history of autoimmune diseases, leukemian, and lymphoma.
I'm a little freaked out. None of these things seem like anything "major" right? GP is suspicious so I'm getting worried.
Any advice or insight is greatly appreciated!
