Oh Dear Chart,
So sorry to hear your eyes are acking up! What do you mean by plugs? In your eyes or ears? I hope tha A-B cream goes to work real fast!! I'm with you, I don't know how Skeye can take that eye pain every day!!! I get crazy when I get something in my eye and it hurts for just a minute! What an awful thing to have eye pain, I think I would lose it! I have so much respect for Skeye and now you for what you are going through!!!
Big Hugz for & Skeye!!!
Pete

Char,
I'm just going to send you as many healing hugs as you send to all of us!

(((((((((((((((Chartreux)))))))))))))))))

I'm with Pete. Don't know how you and Skeye do it. Eyes are so important.

I hope everything calms down and soon!

Hugs,

I honestly don't know how you and Skeye do it with the Eye pain,! Back when I was a young lad of 21 or 22 and I was stationed in Southern California I decided to get these new contact lenses that you could wear a week at a time! well I wore them three days and my eyes swelled shut and I had to have the Doctor remove them and the surface of my eye was badly scratched and I had to have heavey patches over my eyes for 3 or 4 days and I honestly thought I was going to die of the pain. I have never had anything and I mean absolutely anything hurt as bad as that did, every time I moved my eye it felt like it was grating against sand! I think it was the worst pain I had ever experienced it made a lasting impression on me, and I have never touched contact lenses ever again! So Chart I do sympathize with you and I do hope you get to feeling better soon. My heart goes out to you and also to Skeye!
I do wish you all the best and hope that your Eye Pain goes away soon! (LIKE REAL SOON!!!!)

Hi Chart:

My husband has been dealing with unexplained eye pain for a couple of years now. It started off where it was just once in a while, but over the last 3 years it had steadily progressed to the point that it is now everday, all day. He has pain, burning, tearing, redness, he feels like his eyeballs are swelling out of his head, and it is progressively affecting his vision.

He started with allergy drops, then antibiotic drops, and now he has steriod drops and so far nothing has helped. I really feel for you guys because I can see how much it bothers my husband.

I hope that the antibiotics work.

Hi Whitebeard:

Your experience made me think back to one I had - I was having surgery, and the anesthesiologist did not check carefully how he placed the oxygen mask, and the edge of it was in my eye through the whole surgery. It scratched my eyeball and it was awful. I could not open the eye at all for 3 days, and it was so painful and irritating.

I, too, am so hopeful that Skeye is going to get some tremendous relief if she goes through with the stimulator.

First I wanted to thank everyone, the eye doctor has prescribe steroid eye drops, name brand ($50) as
they work better, and had my first drop put in..it got very bad, that it was extremely hard to drive...
Lorie,Bluejet, mine started with an infectous boil (fever and all) in 2006, three eye surgeries that year
alone to try to remove it, was just in the right eye..this year I finally went back to my eye doctor as the pain was
getting to me again, this time both eye were hurting, so the eye doctor did that paper strip test for
sjogren's and then said that the sjogren's dryness of my eye's made the infection linger, so eye plugs
were put in to help keep my eye moist and I've been on an antibotic cream since Feb.2009. and now hopefully
the steroid drops will help..Have your husband tested for sjogrens cause by having the dry eye of sjogrens
it makes the infections come back repeatedly and men can get sjogren's, it's an easy test the eye doctor can do
The eye plugs can hurt, some but they do help I also use retasis (sp?) drops and an antibotic oinment/cream and now a steroid drop..
also have him try omega-3...I could literally feel the steroid drops helping today after the first use,
WhiteBeard it felt like sandpaper in my eye and I wanted to scratch it out so bad...and had bad thoughts and had to talk with
my psychologist today because of those...
I'm so tired my friends and will post more later fingers crossed for the steroid drops to work...

Char I cannot begin to know how you have managed with those eyes being as they are. That's just one part of the body that pain should never be allowed to enter as far as I am concerned. Wow, what you have been thru. I get ulcers inside my eyelids and those things drive me batty, not to mention the pain. The gi dr gave it some name and says its a spin off from my crohns.I hope your new drops will continue to give you more relief/ Don't worry a bit about trying to post-give those eyes a break. Hugs.

((((((((((Char))))))))))))). I feel for you!! I wish I had some amazing secret to handling the eye pain, but I don't. I'm just glad to hear that the steroids are already helping! Hopefully you won't have to put up with this for too much longer. Try to give your eyes as much of a break as you can -- close your eyes & listen to music, take a nap, etc, etc, etc!
Cod fish liver oil, vitamin E, and selenium are all supposed to be good for the eyes. That's the only thing that I can think of to tell you that you might not know already (you're too smart & experienced smilewinkgrin).
Feel better!!!

many hugs,
Skeye
