Did the xrays include the teeth? An abcessed tooth might cause swelling of the face and the area around the eye.

Also, we had a past member who's dog developed Masticatory Myositis. I think the symptoms were at least somewhat similar to what your dog is presenting with.

I hope the vets find some answers and can start treatment soon! How long has she been sick?
