Anyone else notice that their dry eyes correlate with any other symptoms?
My dry eyes correlate with fatigue levels.
4th time I enquired at the ME specialist fatigue clinic I was attending and the therapist told me it was the result of widespread inflammation, which I now think could be SFN as I have other symptoms.
Or just inflammation of the tear glands in the eyes, possibly blocking the tear ducts, and possibly as well inflammation of the autonomic nerves that control the tear glands...
What kind of doctor would deal with this? The whites of my eyes fluctuate red and it’s more visible under florescent lighting. When I have relapse level of fatigue they turn very red. It makes me very self- conscious as everyone comments on it. I was wondering if it’s the neuroinflamation in my eyes - if that’s possible.
I’ll do some digging and see what I can find. It will be the 3rd ophthalmologists opinion. The last one said my eyes were completely fine.I'm not sure, maybe an opthalmologist? If it helps, the following article has a readable introduction to problems with tear glands and the tear ducts:
Tear Gland Inflammation (from Manhattan Eye Specialists)
What kind of doctor would deal with this?
Definitely give them a call, Ruf! You may be protecting other patients when you do by calling out the bad apples.the worthless eye doctor is sending me reminder notices. I want to call to remind them how i will never go back to that eye doctor, who did not help me one iota in anyway (nor did the "other one".) I'll be asking if they employ any real eye doctors, Figure that won't go over well....
