For about 5 years now my strange symptoms have been getting very slowly worse. The entire right side of my body is gradually weakening/losing health. I can't figure out what's wrong, and it's hard to describe most of the symtoms, but it's most evident in the upper right side of of my head. The entire left side of my body is fine.

I need help figuring out what kinds of things can cause problems that affect the right side of your body and only that. If you drew a line straight down the middle of my body you would get precisely where the symptoms begin and end.

The right side of my body is more easily fatigued. In the upper right side of my head, where it's most evident, I have this strange feeling, almost a burning feeling, that's been developing, especially where the right side of my brain is, and it seems like the area around my right eye is beginning to swell. When I press my fingers to the area directly under my eyes right above my cheek bone... Well, when I compare this area on the right side to this area on the left side of my face, it is very obvious that it's beginning to swell. It is easier just to leave my right eye closed, as if it's fatigued, but it doesn't ease any of the symptoms.

It's like a constant, very gradually worsening headache, but only on the right side. And the rest of the right side of my body is similar but not as bad.

Does anyone have any idea what kinds of things can cause problems that only affect one side of your body?
