For the past four days upon awakening my eyes are so sore where my eye lashes are that my eyes water for most of the morning.  By afternoon they are much better but my eyes are also a bit red with this.  By evening barely sore at all, but once again when I wake up the next morning they are so sore again.  This is something I can't remember having had before. Anyone else have this or have any suggestions?  Yet another strange symptom.  Hugs to all.

It sounds like allergies to me.  If it continues you should probably see a doctor about it.  I know I don't mess around with my eyes.

Could they be getting dry at night??? I would try some drops for severe dry eyes before bedtime, they are thick and cause some blurring but that goes away. I have very bad dry eyes from sjogren's and it makes my eyes burn like they are irratated, well I guess they are if they are dry.

I have a severe dry eye problem.  I have even had a procedure done to help keep the tears in my eyes---not drain out.  I had a lot of eye pain and my lids were red and irritated.  I still use moisturizing drops at  bedtime.

Is it possible that you might be dealing with Rosacea? My sister and I both have it, and it also affects her eyes. She has to wash her eyelids daily with baby shampoo to keep the redness, irritation, and styes away. Just a possiblity.

I'm like Sherrine; I don't mess around with my eyes. If it continues, I would probably head to the eye doctor.

Edited to add: I also have severe dry eyes and have had the same procedure that puppylover has had (punctal plugs). Mine got so bad that I have to use a dry eye ointment (instead of drops) at night. It really has helped.

Austin, I've used the dry eye ointment too.  I have to make sure I'm in bed for the night, or at least a lot of it, because I'm almost blind with that stuff in my eye.  And no t.v. watching with it in.  But it really helps. :-)

Oncee again this forum has helped me. I posted a couple of weeks ago about eye pain. New to Fibro so I wasnt sure if that was it. For 2 years off and on I have had red,sore,swelling, eyes. Family Dr. and Internist said go to eye Dr..SO I DID. He said was not eye strain but would not address the issue. When went back to Internist I ask could it be allergies so he gave me drops. I think they help but it use to go and come now it stays and is getting bad. I have rosacha(forgot how to spell) and schorriasis so now I will have to make my Dr. address those. Who should I go to Eye Dr. Dermatologist or Internist. It seems to me that alot of people with Fibro have this issue so maybe I should ask the Rhumey Dr. Now you know why I am poor. I have a team of Drs. So sad but just trying to feel good. They pass me back and forth. Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

Puppylover, I so know what you mean. I've awakened many a night with insomnia and had to try to rub that gunk out of my eyes so I can see to do anything! But, if I don't use it, my eyes are painful and "glued" together, so I guess it's worth it.

Normal, this is just my opinion, of course, but since you aren't sure that it is rosacea or psorriasis affecting your eyes, I would probably see an eye doctor. Is there a different one you could see? Mine is not only familiar with eye issues, but seems able to discern if something systemic is causing problems in the eye and could refer me to the appropriate doctor if need be.

I guess to me, since your main issue right now (at least the one that is the squeaky wheel, lol) is your eyes, it makes sense to start with a good eye doctor.

Good luck. I hope you get some relief.

Hi,
 
  I get this from time to time too. A friend of mine reminded me to keep an eye on how old my mascara is. I guess mascara can get bacteria in it. I usually have to stop wearing eye makeup for a couple of days till the pain subsides ( with warm wet compresses) and make sure to get new eye makeup.

Thanks, I will try a new eye Dr. Getting new insurance at work and will have to pay for my Savella out of pocket OUCH 157.00 a month and have to pay for office calls. But it is only 60.00 a month instead of 200.00 so I will just have to budget medical more. Sometimes I just get so tired of it all I cant even think which way to turn next. And I gave up makeup a long time ago. Have such skin issues I could not tolerate it. Take care all. Normal
