I am constantly suffering from burning eyes

I suffer from constantly burning eyes.Doctors tentatively think it could be dry eyes . I am 28,female and am not on any prescription drugs or pills. I have noticed that in times of high anxiety, my mouth goes dry and stays that way for a few days. In these times, my eyes feel perfectly normal. However the eye burning and strain returns once the dry mouth abates. Can all this be due to sustained depression? I suffer from no other depression symptoms or any other disease. I work on the computers and find it really hard to go on after a short while. I do warm compresses and use tear drops every few hours. I have got autoimmune tests to check for Sjogrens and they came back negative. My TSH and blood/urine sugar/Blood pressure are in the normal levels too. My blood tests showed a slightly lower than normal lymphocyte and basophil count. ESR is normal. Is there any explanation for this? The dry eye has persisted for 7-8 months now.

It is quiet common to notice dry eye in persons working on computers. You should use Lubricating eye drops every four hours of computer work.

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.

Dear Sir,

My mother has been suffering from Kidney disease. She never had any problem with BP or Blood Sugar but he has been declared to have bilateral renal parenchyma disease since 2005.

She is taking a calculated diet limiting the salt content in the food to 3 gm/day. The recent blood test conducted (2 months back) has reported bad results and the details are listed below:-

Creatinine - 7.5

Hemoglobin - 8.1

Blood Sugar (Fasting) 88 mg/DL

Urea - 150

Sodium - 131

Potassium - 4.2

What should be the next step? Is kidney transplantation the only choice? When/where should it be done? Is it getting very worse or we still have some time to go for the transplantation?

Please help.

Thanks, Kunal

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
