Hello and thanks for your question.


Your symptoms could be consistent with a problem with the cornea and/or tear film such as dry eye, corneal inflammation or infection, inflammation behind the cornea, or increased pressure in the eye. Unfortunately, there is not much you can really do for your symptoms outside of using artificial tears, cool compresses and ibuprofen. What I would suggest is making an appointment to see an ophthalmologist to determine what the reason for your symptoms is--any of these would need treatment by the eye doctor.
