What has happened to me im so worried memory loss + eye pain

3 months before the covid situation started i took some medication just 2 tablets within few hours i broke out in a fever followed by this sudden sharp pain behind my upper jaw nose maybe it was higher it was behind my face anyway. Ever since then my eye sight is dim. i have had pain behind my eyes for 1 year 6 months. also ear ache feels like liquid near ears or something i have also got short term memory loss the scary thing is i dont feel nicotine anymore or opoids or even whe ni go for a run i dont feel the rush, i am so worried.   i get headaches now everyday sort of like dull sharp headaches everywhere. all this started from year and half ago. around 6 months ago i had chest pain had like a mini heart attack hospitals in uk useless doctors done nothing for me no investigation atall except for brain mri scan which also covers face they found nothing chest x ray clear ecg clear. i now have tinitus and chronic fatigue never ever had this before i am 36. even now i have dull pains in my head pain behind eyes its like something has happened below brain stem some immune response maybe? im scared to go doctors because they are playing off as if i am mental i have never had dim vision in my life before i was misdiagnosed as sinitus my nose was fine not blocked ever. i dident get nasal drip or nothing the doctor now thinks its not sinitus. i cannot cope with this feeling of medicaiton not working i can only just detect anti depressents at very high doses before all this i could easily feel medication what the hell is going on is this brain inflammatio nor something else stroke? . my right eye is slightly more red than the other one doctors dopnt know what this is . i just want to cry every day i cannot live with this any longer feels like pressure in front of my head please help someone. i had inflammation markers done month ago but month ago i s way too late they came back clear  bloods clear. finally these types of headaches i have never had in my life before i have had to go to my mp in uk BECAUSE the poor treatment i have recieved in hospitals and doctors. i have even ordered my own blood tests i am that desperate one if for antibodies llg and one is for something else i have no idea what to do i guess i have to accept this it is debillitating i cant live my life anymore why am i getting ear ache yet blood clear no infection why cant i feel medicaiton anymore as much

I'm no professional absolutely not even a gp etc, but I have always had migraines and eye sight pressure problems age say 5-7 up and till now at 38, also had sinusitis acute twice as well, what you mention pain in jaw and nose area just rings alarm bells to me of reminiscent of the defacto semsations that associate mild to moderate level sinusitis, it will commonly feel like a sudden argh my right or left eye strain pain like the back of that eye pulses like a bruisy to bruisy and sharp as well pulsing burst of pain that goes throb and then dissipates but it always feels as if it's behind your eye, if it accellerates past mild or moderate it then feels like it's in your temple eye veins and temple plus behind said eye side eg' left right but usually then it throbs in your nose side of said eye side pain as well like a big pressure build up and you get majorly runmy nose amd nausea and or floaters you have with migranes floating fluroescent light glowing blobs floating by, that level of sinisitus is rare even  but mild bordering moderate yeah it hurts your temple/teeth/jaw/back of eyes like they feel like,they willgo pop and burst inside your forehead also hurts and major sniffles runny nose nausea

You'll know it is sinusitis in an easy way by my approach is running nose feeling majorly stuffed as it increases and following and accompanying it is a increasing building pressure like feeling behind one eye evolving to teeth in a row on the affected sode leadinng if acute to yeah maybe actual vomiting although really rare its that intense but getting bad your sode affected temple bulges your nose gushes you feel motion sick and you will feel nauseas sever you see luminescent floating neon colour floating blobs across your eyes but it does confine prodominamt intense acute pain to ome side if it isn't that it could evene be somewhat relatable to teeth as a possible absess in your mouth hence eye and face pains etc equay in need of fast treatment, sinisitus can be blockage or infectious infectious being more acute usually and much more painfull and physically painfu but commonly similar starting effects

In layman's without the terrible grammar, could you have sinusitis starting infection based or blockage based moderate sinusitis,  and another potential you have a yet unpronounced only mildly presenting abscess in your mouth that explains nasal issues head pain teeth discomfort

Either way pains around nose head etc try ibuprofen first visit a dentist rule out an abscess, sinusitis dark room ibuprofen see gp before that rinse with cordosil burns like a mother but high antibiotic property mouthwash also make an effort to have a eye exam to my advice

If it's sinusitis though you will notice your temple on the side affected pertrudes with the blockage or infection and a migraine kicks in pretty quickly if its infectious sinusitis I'm no pro but yeah I've been the eye infirmary with acute sinusitis twoce had it moderate once acute twice

I've had a double tooth size root canal level abscess and also had sinusitis to, the worst one I felt was having not blockage type sinisitus but acute viral sinisitus due to an infection, that just comes on so fast you feel really ill like a migraine at first that clings to one,side then it gets worse and worse to a growing building pressure behind one,specific eye my right in that case, it got so pressurised well felt that way to an extent you think the pain os directly behind that eye on say that right side and then it also starts causing hyper sensitivity in the teeth of that side of your face and  you can no exaggeration touch lightly that right temple vein and it lertrudes like a cm or two off your sode of your head sticking out, you see neon floaters of light as you get with immense migraines you also experience massive nausea and also super bad extreme jaw and teeth ache hypersensitivity, that's the extreme of sinusitis reay rare acute style infectious type that is, otherwose moderately you get all the abobe sensations with ten times less of the ferocity. But you get an abscess in your root canal under a double cap as well it is similar really close to the same effect but slower build up maybe my view half that severity of acute sinisitus but definitely feels like blockage and temple pressure runny nose etc pretty much masquerading as similar to the results of a moderate sinisitus, but a abscess will eventually grow gestate past that level if left to just grow, but yeah sinusitis is savage as are abscesses and they do tend to show the same results at first I'd definitely have a blockage based sinisitus over a viral sinisitus though and a moderate sinisitus viral over a big double tooth sozed abscess

You might have none of these likely you don't but that's generally a way you know both aching nose and head behind said eye one side and sickness leading to pouring nose and major migraine and sticking up temple ome sode becoming sickly and teeth always really hurt same side both abscess and sinositus regardless of severoty of that pressure behind saod eye goes crazy painfull wanma cry that's highly likely sinnositus acute or developing bad abscess as both affect teeth that side and temple,pops right uo as well as this eye bursting feeling pressure behind the eye that side

Anything memory loss worse if none of the symptoms I state just can't recollect much then clearly the likely reason is a impact a jolt ricochet or spine impact but to be honest here loosing memory and whereabout etc without major traumatic blows it's highly improbable it's a major thing because anything that commonly hits your memory instantly forgetting or stammering does almost certainly relate to trauma and not some light tap but say a whallop off a motorbike head impact or severely jarred spine or frontal head blow colliding the brain inside the,skull against the skull wall oftenly associated with eg. a direct car impact with a,pedeatrian shattering the,windscreen with their head or motorbile dismount walloping your head on the floor inside a helmet all of which you'd almost instantly show clear signs of trauma through stammering speech loss of consousness etc , so if no accidents,rule out trauma, leaving likely a feeling of this but more,likely not significant you'd present pretty damn fast you'd almost definitely go out cold seize etc with such major impact mate if none of that occured but your memory is a bit rough malaised it may be something like your litterally low on your blood sugar and those electrolytes etc far more likely

If you've not crashed a motorbike or dismounted one jarring the spine or had a head impact or whiplash or rolled a car etc no serious head or neck or spinal impacts then immediately you can pretty much rule out any external injury causing memory loss, but infections eg. abscesses etc can often cause foggy memory and yeah viral sinusitis or viral infections etc etc they are way way more plausible

I have memory loss including been whiplashed jarred my coccyx to severe bruised it went to go unconscious etc. come of multiple rope swings, rolled off a road in a car the lad handbraked it say 50-60mph idiot side windows had whiplash and lots of other injuries dived in a,swimming pool at school whacked my skull of the,surface feet still out the water blood just poof flew out my mouth and nose and went to sleep waking up in a drowning panick, I definitely lost my speed aptitude lowered my wit from that but all that and I still know that that being the,rolt of my full memory loss issues is not the case it's primarily my mild autism.

That said I'd know I'm in deep trouble if I whacked my head say or spine then my memory is,dissapearing but I also keep passing out blacking out that I'd know is a physiological problem, but feeling bad and it being why your memory is fading or bad is one massive leap frog that is really rare that memory loss results from injury but likely accounts for the why memory loss occurs reasons in the most part so I'd say your almost definitely not loosing memory like that level if your chatting in here yeah

I can say also I was jumped and volleyed full pelt punched and head toe bunted temples forehead eye sockets nose teeth the lot repeatedly full pelt assaulted by blokes and mid 20's lads when I was maybe just 20 and I never lost my memory or coherance so if I never lost my memory from that savage a beating imagine the level of injury required,to affect ones memory resulting from a physical event, yeah it messed me up wmotionally wouldnt go out ptsd and then some still have ot really mild but that attack didnt stunt my memory so that says it all yeah ot takes some major attack crash or injury to affect your memory retention like that, obviously significant brain trauma
