Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
are you there?
yes...sorry. Had to talk to the nurse who stuck her head in my office.....
First of all, I am glad that you will be seeing an ophthalmologist soon.
When you say that pain was on top of your eyes, where is that? Does it hurt when you move your eyeballs? Do you have an double vision etc?
It hurts literally on the top of my eyes. And they do hurt when I look up and side ways.
no double vision
but I do have some trouble seeing clearly inside place with artificial light
pain with eye movements combined with painful orbital areas makes me think of optic neuritis, scleritis, perhaps atypical cluster migraines, the list is long and varied.
how can one be sure?
I hate to admit it but you are right.....your issues will be almost impossible to diagnose using "computer chat" as the only diagnostic tool. When is your appointment with the ophthalmologist?
and are any of these permanent and serious?
The majority things that could be causing this will not be made worse by waiting until tomorrow. And, yes, some of them are serious but the good news? It seems that things have gotten a little better since you had to go to the ER for IV pain meds.....anything that was really horrible would not have either stayed the same or got a little better....they would have been worse.
So, on the positive side, at least you have that going for you.
Thanks for the pep talk, I hope you are right.
Wish I could have done more for you. If you have a chance drop me a note on this thread and let me know what the doc finds. I'd be very interested......
Good luck to you. I hope you feel better soon.
