Dr. PG :

hi

Dr. PG :

are you present online?

Customer :

yes

Dr. PG :

since when are you getting these episodes of redness in the eye?

Customer :

about three months

Dr. PG :

ok

Dr. PG :

since when are you on asprin?

Customer :

about four months

Dr. PG :

ok

Dr. PG :

how many days does it take for the redness to resolve/

Customer :

with drops 1 day and now that i think about it my has turned red for 7 months now

Dr. PG :

ok

Dr. PG :

is the redness red like color of blood?

Dr. PG :

are there any other symptoms like itching, irritation, discharge etc/

Customer :

just like a blood shot eye ,my eye doctor said my eye was fine

Dr. PG :

ok

Dr. PG :

what you are describing seems like a subconjunctival hemorrhage

Dr. PG :

this is bleeding in the superficial white portion of eye

Dr. PG :

the commonest cause is sudden increase in blood pressure

Dr. PG :

but since your blood pressure is normal, this does not seem the cause

Dr. PG :

the other possibility is blood thinning

Customer :

is it elevating while i sleep

Dr. PG :

this can be due to the asprin that you started 4 months ago

Customer :

should i stop taking the low dose aspirin

Dr. PG :

if your blood pressure gets elevated while sleeping and you get the hemorrhage in your eye on getting up in the morning, then the cause might be sudden increase in blood pressure

Dr. PG :

then you need to see your medical specialist for change of medicine

Dr. PG :

also you might need otherinvestigations

Customer :

suh as

Dr. PG :

a single episode of subconjunctival hemorrhage can occr without any concern

Dr. PG :

but since you have had multiple episodes, you need investigations like blood platelet levels, clotting time, PTK, protein C and protein S levels

Dr. PG :

rarely there might be an abnormality detected on these tests which might need teatment

Customer :

when i get this my artery on my left side of my neck seems like it flutters

Dr. PG :

This is not likely to be related to the same

Customer :

I see my md next month and will have these questions for him, Thanks for our help Timothy M. Scott

Dr. PG :

You are most welcome :)

Dr. PG :

Glad to be able to assist
