Eye Pain

Eye Pain

For roughly the past 2 weeks my eyes have been really sore, not to watch tv or use my phone but to move in my head. They feel bruised all around my eye balls. It's getting worse and pain killers don't touch it

Has anyone ever had anything like this?

Yes! I had this about two weeks ago, accompanied by sore throat (not inside, more like the muscles around my throat) and a head ache and ear pain. I went to the Dr, and he said it's just Fibro and then he wanted to increase my meds,(the usual story). So I said "No thanks", and went for a second opinion.

The next Dr did a thorough physical exam of my thyroid, neck and spine, and then explained that she thinks it is very likely linked to inflammation in my neck / vertebrae. She said that due to the extreme pain in my lower back and elsewhere, I probably move differently to compensate for the pain, which in turn affects my posture and other areas of the spine, which has resulted in the symptoms. She recommended I try pilates to help strengthen my core and back muscles which will improve my posture.

I was so happy she gave an answer that actually really made sense to me, along with constructive suggestions on how to remedy the situation rather than throwing more meds at me and telling me it's just something I have to deal with.

I am definitely going to take her advice, and will let you know if it helps. :)

I hope you can figure out what is causing your discomfort and that you are feeling better soon.

I am still waiting for my migraine specialist to get back to me, after seeing my gp who hadn't heard anything i tried to chase up the specialist team to get a message back to say they are on holiday til 25th September and to ring a number, ring this number to be told, this person is on sick and to ring another number, ring that number and find out they only work mon to wed. So now got to hopefully catch someone on monday before i go crazy. My gp has given my contact details on an eye service that runs to get checked at too x
