I know medical advice is not to be asked for or given on this forum but I hav a situation that I cannot get resolved anywhere else (my eye doctor and naturopath are both totally stumped) so I come to you for any insights you might have. Here's what is going on:
Since 12 January 2015 I have 4 "episodes" where an eye will start to water quite a bit, feel like I got shampoo in it and then produce yellowish goo. It then goes into the other eye. By the next morning, the whites of both eyes are completely red- looks like the whites have been filled with red dye. This, each and every time has lasted 72 hours. The first time it happened, I saw my eye doctor right away. He ran a series of tests which showed no infection, no increased eye pressure, nothing out of the ordinary except for the extreme redness and scratchiness. He prescribed an expensive eye drop and steroids. 72 hours later and I was back to normal.. The second time which happened a few weeks later, I called the doc back and ran tests again with the same conclusion. So he believes it to be allergies and suggested a $160/month eye drop. Yeah, no. I tried a homeopathy treatment instead and 72 hours later it was back to normal. The 3rd time a few weeks after that, here I go again! This time I did herbal eye drops and you guessed it-72 hours later all was well. Last night it hit again which probably means sometime Tuesday evening it will clear up. In the meantime, my eyes would be great in a horror movie! I have no vision issues, just extremely red and itchy eyes. I have found absolutely nothing on the Internet and both my eye doc and naturopath are stumped. Lupus related? Hubby seems to think so and I'm inclined to agree with him considering how naughty lupus can be. I've not found any connections to each episode. I've not changed food, drink, or introduced anything new to my home like cleaner and so on. I'm totally gobsmacked. Any thoughts?
