I've been coping with migraine for decades.Started out with silent migraine.Then migraine with aura...followed by extreme pain.To ER trips vomiting,convulsing,passing out. Over 4 yrs of being homebound.Not being able to even look outside.
I seem to have a time where my pain level lowered and I was able to function.Go to family outings,run errands,etc. Now, my eyes hurt all the time. Below my eyelids are very swollen,the left is worse.Looks like fluid in it,droops. Sometime effects how I see. Above my eyebrow has been a red patch,the pharmacist thought it was a fungis. The dr seem to agree. I use cream on it,it helps,but I have to keep using it or the patch gets worse.
Both eyes throb now all the time. I've been suffering major fatigue. I get to the point where I will just fall asleep sitting up.My vision can get very blurry. Mornings are the worst. My eyes are so swollen. I'm taking allergy meds, I use a saline spray for my nose and I got the eye drops dr recommended.
I'm limited as I have no insurance. Between it all,it scares me.And I can say,with all the pain I've been thru in the past,this is escalating.I cannot deal with it much more. Lost.
