How can I help?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
I've been experiencing something weird and i don't have a way of visiting a doctor physically so i figured I'd try here
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
It started about a month ago when I woke up and the right side of my face was hurting

Where on your face is it hurting? Is it swollen? Any dental problems?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Especially the cheek and eye are. It followed with a weird persistent pain on the right side of my head
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
It was not swallen and i don't think it was anything dental, all my teeth are healthy and checked regularly
Expert:  Dr Baker replied 7 days ago.

Thanks - does it feel tender to press this side of your face?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Shortly after that I've started to experience a very weird short and sudden dizziness
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
it feel very sensitive, especially sensitive to cold touch
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
The dizziness lasted for about a week or so. And that was about 3 weeks ago. I woke up yesterday and this time the left side of my head was hurting and the sudden weird dizziness is back
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
The dizziness is really worrying me. It only lasts bo longer then a blink but it's so strong it makes me feel nuseaus
Expert:  Dr Baker replied 7 days ago.

How old are you?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
I can't visit the doctor because i am a live in carer and i can't leave my service user alone

Expert:  Dr Baker replied 7 days ago.

Thanks, ***** ***** symptoms could be secondary to a virus, you may have some sinus symptoms, which can also affect your middle ear causing you to feel dizzy.

It is also possible to develop a condition called Trigeminal neuralgia but tends to be a nerve shooting pain.

An examination will now be required to assess this further though. So to find out more you will need to be physically seen by a doctor.

Expert:  Dr Baker replied 7 days ago.

I would suggest you speak with your employer as for personal health reasons you should be allowed to see a doctor, it is not good practice to be a carer and have no option for your own health needs.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Do you think it's really serious? I should be put of work in a month
Expert:  Dr Baker replied 7 days ago.

No not at all, I do not think this is serious.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Ah thank You very much i will go to a doctor as soon as I'm off work then ☺️
Expert:  Dr Baker replied 7 days ago.
That is my pleasure
Expert:  Dr Baker replied 7 days ago.
