At first my eyesight got increasingly bad in a short time..... then 2 days ago, I flew to Utah to deal with my ailing parents (high stress) The first night I was there, I noticed the left side of my face, lip, ear, and neck went numb... I felt lethargic and had difficulty speaking.... I noticed I had pain and swelling on the left side of my neck. the numbness is subsiding, but my eyesight seems to be getting worse every day. The lymph nodes on the left side of my neck are very tender and swollen. I'm a 47 year old female. I have stage 2b melanoma. I had 3 lymph nodes removed from my right armpit. I doubt its related to this new issue. I'm really tired of running to the ER on the weekends. I find that most of my ailments could wait for a regular Monday morning office visit.

any thoughts?


thanks,
Dina
