is anyone else dealing with lupus related eye problems?MY eyeball and socket hurt all the time,even the underside of the brow bone feels like it has been beat to crap! I know there is nerve damage and rim ulcers and this one stumped the doctors for 3 years-it is so nice the opthemologists receptionist is on the ball,every time I managed to nail down an appointment date,she called to rebook...I want to be patient,but finally got angry and said it was time to ''bump'' some one else,it takes MONTHS to even get an appointment with this guy,but after 5 calls of''gee,I'm sorry,the doctor is in surgery,out of town,on holidays,blah,blah,blah,...we need to reschedule ...'' My lenses were needing to be changed 3x in less than a year-$455(progressives) for the lenses each time-we are only covered 1x each 2yrs..I haven't taken the 2 additional changes since this fall-total of 5 changes in just under 2yrs(in april)...and what this chick figures this doesn't warrant an appointment that sticks?!!!
SORRY'SORRY'SORRY!!! I didn't mean to ramble,I'm frustrated and scared,I was told that it is not ''common'' for lupus to affect the eyes and am finding it hard to believe,there is no way I am the only one that has such problems,does anyone know what could bring me relief?
THIS appointment is April 6th, I'm probably the most scared because I understand there is little tissue that separates the eye and the brain,,my mom lost an eye years ago and that's what they told her,am I just freaking out because of the pain? Or are they schmucks?
