I am a 32 year old female. About 2 months ago i noticed a swollen area about the size of a nickle in between the right outside corner of my eye and my temple. It was soft and did not really hurt. It felt like fluid. It lasted several hours and went away. About a week later the same type of swelling was underneith my right eye. This came and went for a week or so. I went to my family doctor, she did a quick exam, asked me a few questions and told me that I need to stop eating salt (she did not run any tests what so ever). I cut back on salt, but the swelling still came and went. It has since moved to the inside corner (of my right eye). And now, it is ABOVE my right eye near my eye lid. It does not stay there constantly, it comes and goes. I am at a loss. I want to go to a specialist, but I am not even sure what kind of specialist I should go to. An eye doctor? Ear nose and throat? (someone told me it could be related to sinuses). If someone could please give me some insight I would greatly appreciate it! I have NEVER heard of this! I am starting to get VERY worried!!
Thanks in advance.
I am only on a low dose birth control and have been on the same one for years. I have noticed a few times the area has appeared very quickly after I have ate a meal that included a number of different foods (once after a big Christmas dinner and another time after eating lunch at a buffet resturant).
???? Maybe this could be an allergy... I have scheudled an appt with an ENT... wonder if I should change it to an allergy specialist???
