Hi - am new to this forum so apologise if I have posted in wrong place. I need some advice please. Am 45 year old female who 6 weeks ago was diagnosed with acute conjunctivitis by the hospital. My eye was very very swollen and had a horrible gelatinous discharge. This cleared but then eye red and sore. Episcleritis was then diagnosed. had various drops to no avail. now, into 7th week and hospital have finally done blood tests but I noticed nodular scleritis on the form. having googled this, it sounds very very serious so am very worried about it. I work in the legal profession and have already taken 4 weeks off as a lot of my job means looking at the computer all day, which exacerbates things. can anyone please offer any advice - should I be worried?
