Anybody else get this?
I got it initially in August 2015. In Sep 2015, I had my last normal regular menstrual cycle and my bowels went into lockdown with sudden onset IBS-C. I connected the eyelid problems and constipation to hormones since it all converged at once.
I lost count of how many eyelid infections I had in all, as they kept coming. I know this must be about
number 10. It’s the first one in a really long time, though. I felt a little scratchiness the other night but forgot about
it. Tonight, as I left a restaurant and got in the car, it hit suddenly with pain and a feeling like my eyes were being suctioned dry. It happened so suddenly. This is so weird. These infections are quite painful.
I know hormones are involved, at least in my case, but I am not sure what to think right now. I am menopausal now and haven’t had a cycle in well over a year. I take maca powder for my hormones. I decided to take a break starting in October, because you aren’t supposed to take it long term without a break, and I was overdue for one. The first half of the month went okay. Then earlier this week, I had a sudden big increase in constipation resulting in a bad migraine and nausea. I felt so bad, that I got back on the maca powder in case hormones were causing the constipation.
It’s like everything is drying out - my intestines and my meibomian oil glands.
Just wondering if anyone else has ever dealt with these eyelid infections.
I’m not sure what to think about
the maca now. Not sure if I should stop again or keep taking it.
Edit - I forgot I also had drenching night sweats last Saturday night and was having hot flashes in the day. It was Monday when I felt so sick and restarted maca that night.
