I agree with the ENT referral and MRI. This would rule out many major neurological diseases and sinus conditions.
Rheumatological diseases like giant cell arteritis can lead to some of the complaints. An ESR and C-reactive protein can be considered if suspected. I would also consider an ANA level to rule out lupus.
The eye complaints can be looked at by an ophthalmologist.
These options should be discussed with your personal physician.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.

I agree with everything above. If your lyme test is negative, consider looking into CFS. As far as feeling faint, your physician should check your orthostatics (sitting down and then standing up) and rule out POTS.
I've been referred to a urologist and next week I'm having a ct scan of my rt kidney as some abnormality was noted in a scan of my bladder. I've felt like I have a bladder infection with tenderness in my abdomen. I've also recently been treated for pneumonia and I'm still having shortness of breath, extreme exhaustion, nausea, headache and my right side hurts. usually worse when I am active. I also sweat profusely whenever I do any activity. I've had 3 chest x-rays and a ct of head and bladder and so far I'm referred to the urologist. I'm having a ct scan after oral contrast. I'm wondering if these could be related. I've been sick for three weeks and I'm really worried. Bevvie
