During the past week, the left side of my face went numb few times. Not only that… I had headaches! Sometimes its my forehead, other times its the back of my head as if someone is applying pressure or pulling my hair back! My eyes were itchy and watery… my nose was runny, my face hurt at some points, buzzing sounds in my ears! I was weak and tired most of the time. My body was aching all over, I thought I have flu, it was just bad. My dad ordered me to go see a doctor.
I called one of the private hospital and talked to the receptionist who directed me to physical therapy clinic. I called in for the doctor and they asked me to come at 5:30PM that day. I go in, and they tell me the doctor is out of town! Why wouldnt they tell us that on the phone… well anyways, I saw the visiting doctor instead.
I told her my symptoms and she explained that the ENT problems are to do with allergies and she really wanted to know about the numbness only! I was like oookaaay!
What did she prescribed for me? Vitamin B Complex!
I wasnt really convinced, so I booked an appointment with my dentist in Bayan Dental. The doctor was all ears! I told him I wanna tell him ALL my symptoms, and he was up for it. He listened to everything I said and turned out it was all relevant.
He asked me if I fell lately… and you know what? I did!! ON MY FACE. Last month, someone was at the door and I wanted to look in the window. It was dark so I didnt see the aerobics steps and fell on my face hard. I ignored it thinking it will go away with time… I didnt tell anyone about it at the time. It was around mid April!
With basic examinations, my jaw clicks… yeah! It does, when I open my mouth and then close it… it clicks! I am going to see the doctor again this afternoon for follow up…. but my jaw clicks now 😦 Good thing is that its mild and not too bad 😉
I looked it up online, and guess what? The symptoms are all THERE!! I am going to see the doctor again today and I have prepared some questions 😦
Now that I know my jaw clicks, I keep opening my mouth and closing it just to see if it still clicks! Dang! Its annoying me 😦
