This is regarding my girlfriend. She is 26 years old and has been having headaches for sometime now. The headaches are essentially temple throbbing and pain at the back of her head. However from around 6 months or so her right eye has also started hurting with the pain all around the eye. She has short sightedness(power of 3.5) with estigmatism. Also from a few months she starts feeling dizzy once in a while where she feels light headed and cannot focus of the work or anything that she is doing. However the feeling of dizziness goes away if she sits down for a while.
Now she has gone to a doctor and has got her eyes checked and the doctor has said that the power of her short sightedness hasnt increased and that there is nothing wrong with her eye. She has also got a brain scan and nothing has shown up in the scan. She keeps having the headaches frequently (every 2-3 days), pain in her eye less frequently (once a week or so) and the feeling of dizziness every 2-3 days.
While we have shown her to individual doctors for each of these individual conditions, I have been thinking that we should go to one doctor who can look at all the conditions as a whole. Also has anybody had a similar condition and what did it turn out. She went to a doctor yesterday as she was felling dizzy and the doctor listened to all the conditions and said that since she has been having all these symptoms for a wile now it should not be anything major which I dont agree.
