I woke up yesterday with some irritation of my right eye. I thought maybe I got some lotion in it, so it would be flushed out before too long. But that doesn't seem to be the case. The white of my eye is bloodshot. It feels like there is grit or something in my eye when I blink. Weirdest thing is some white/milky coloured film around the upper-left rim of my iris. Hurts a bit when I move my eye, and very sensitive to light. In fact, a great stabbing pain when exposed to anything other than dim light.
Never had anything like this before, so no idea what it is. I'm usually the type to wait and see if it goes away, but it is still here today. I did some research on the internet and I can't tell if it is an infection or inflammation. In any case, everything I read says go to your doctor! Man I hate to do that, I am there so often I feel like I am going to get one of those letters telling me to leave them alone.
Anyway, I finally gave in and called... soonest appt I could get is Friday morning.
During my research I read that IBD-ers are prone to iritis/uveitis?? Anyone have experience with this?
