Hi
Your concern regarding dry eyes can be easily be taken by evaluating your eyes by various tests and one can easily make diagnosis of dryness and grade it.dry ocular surface could be secondary to various conditions like allergies, pollution, thyroid disorder, autoimmune etc. you may use high quality preservative free tear substitutes till you get your eyes evaluated. Frequent washing of the eyes with clean water helps wash away allergens and pollutants.show your eyes to an eye specialist first .
Take care

dry eye is a common topic nowadays more commonly due to prolonged use of computers, stress, pollution, ageing, poor nutrition, or related to some systemic diseases like sjogrens syndrome etc, but detail examination of your eyes are required and treatment is long term, without any harm you can start with tear substitutes like systane ultra drops about 4 times daily and you also take some omega 3 fatty acid capsules, it really works.

dryness leads to mild irritation to begin with.Burning would require decongestent eye drops and is due to hyperaemia of the outer layer caused mostly due to exposure to dust and various allergies.so the treatment is protection,washing and decongestent drops

Eyes are kept moist by the tears. Hence there will be no dryness of eyes. If this tears are less than it will lead to dry eyes. Keep washing your eyes frequently with cool and clean water. you can put artificial tear eye drops avialble in the medical shop. This will relieve your dry eyes. Also avoid exposure of eyes to the dust particles, pollutants and strong winds

I suffer from dry eyes and also what my Doctor calls Blethalitis (can t spell it). I used to use a solution called Eye-lid care which I obtained on prescription. They have now stopped making this and only do wipes with the solution already on. These tend to burn when I use them. Is there any other remedy or solution I can use. I have tried the bicarb of soda but this didn t work.

I have been to two opthamologists, they both claim I have dry eye and have treated me with eye drops and tear duct plugs. I still have pain and now my eye seems to droop half way thru the day. Due to the plugs my eyes tear continually and I have blurred vision most of the time. I am on Tarceva, and am worried my cornea may be affected, since that is a possible side effect. Both doctors feel I have dry eye Can you help? Forget it!

I was diagnosed with having a small stroke. MRI confirmed a CT scan results from an ER visit July 2013. I am a 47 female, was diagnosed with Lupus sle as well as rheumatoid arthritis last march I do take methotrexate injections once a week, plaquenil, folic acid, iron, magnesium, and baby aspirin. I do not see my neurologist until mid May, and I know I have enough on my unhealthy plate so to speak as it is ...I have had these symptoms since last Jan 2012 they have come and gone over periods of time. My Dr will def remember us discussing this because Ive asked him to clarify what to look for in regards stroke symptoms. Is it the entire one side of body ? or a part of one side whether it s a limb, limbs weakness? , or side of face, weakness pins needles numbness ? Because I ve felt this for quite sometime but I have to say it s constant now. I feel pins, needles and numbness around left eye, hairline toy cheekbone for days at a time and now the past few weeks it s been constant! What symptoms that are newest to me are this hear sensation that radiates across my scalp. Just keeps going back and forth. .and when it s all over after about two days literally it has left me with a migraine. Lastly, I ve never experienced this hip & leg pain also on right side along with these spasms that awakens me in the middle of the night where I can t even move or stretch out my leg to get up to go to the bathroom which is why I am trying to get up in the first place. Some new symptoms and some old but def much longer time periods I feel them then last year. I can best describe the leg pain in the middle of night as excruciating stabbing deep muscle pain along with these pins, needles, & chills in my legs. My question is could something else be going on ? Because I know my lupus dr will say these aren t lupus symptoms!

Hello I am a 23 year old female and for about a year now I ve been having these symptoms that come and go. I ve seen a gastrologist where I ve had an upper scope done and a colonoscopy both tests coming back normal. I ve also had many blood work done, and all coming back normal. I had a ct scan done last summer but without the dye, so I was told it wouldn t have been accurate and didn t know if it was necessary to schedule another one. These symptoms come and go within like fifteen minutes usually, but throughout the entire day I am suffering from blurred vision and sometimes balance loss. I get these headaches where the room just doesn t spin I can t catch my balance and want to fall over. They re very scary. I will have heart palpitations and it starts with a heat flash almost going over my body and feel like I m going to pass out for a few seconds while I can t focus and blurred vision happens. I ve told my doctor this and he s mentioned panic attacks but I do not feel that s what they are. Sometimes with these symtoms I ll have the urge to move my bowels and then be real shaky afterwards. If I do move my bowels it is just a little bit. I ve thought before is it possible to lose oxygen to the brain that makes me feel like I m goin to pass out before I make a bowel movement? Could this be an anuyresm? When I was very young I was diagnosed with CRAPS syndrome, Chronic Reoccurance of the Abdominal Pain syndrome, but the doctors told me I d grow out of it. Now, almost 15 years later I don t have the vomitting symptoms but I do have IBS and these symptoms as well. Please help.

Less than a year ago I started to experience loose stools/diarrhea. It starts out with a normal bowel movement, but at the end it would be soft that I would be wiping myself most of the day. Now it has come down to having 4-5 movements a day, which are very soft and rope like and am constantly wiping myself. Within the past year, I have been through 2 Colonsoscopy s, A Sigmoidoscopy, Upper Endoscopy and Exploratory Surgery where they have removed my appendix. With all of this done, they say everything came back normal. They have ruled out Colitis, Crohn s Disease and Diverticulitis. It seems every time I eat, I have to go to the bathroom, not right away, but an hour or two later. Sometimes I just have the urge. I have also experienced a lower right side pain that comes and goes with this. They have told me that it s probably an inflamed muscle. I am at my wits end with this problem as I cannot go very far from home. If I don t eat anything, then of course I am fine. When I eat my acid reflux flares up so bad, that it feels like there is something heavy on my throat. I am on Omerprazole for the reflux. Could I possibly have something wrong with my Digestive System? Please help me.
