i am 53 yr F, with relapsing polychondritis and peripheral nueropathy, and hashimotos.
i noticed a red spot of blolod in the sclera
of my right eye 8 days ago, that looked like someone had drawn with red marker. about the size of a poopy seed. there is no pain or difficulty with vision. my eyes are quite dry from autoimmune diease but i use drops regulary.
i believe it is a burst vessel, but was not coughing, sneezing, or lifting. it is eight days after, and the spot, now smaller, is still there. i do get pain in my left eye, and docs are not sure of the cause. i have used pred drops in the past to good effect. my right eye has always been fine.
my mom had temporal arteritis and became blind in her left eye, after the disease was caught too late.
i am taking medrol
4 mg, and usually imuran 75, but went off imuran for 3 months as my dog has MRSA.
i beleive this is harmless, but wanted to make sure. perahps it is not ehaling as quickly from the medrol? also, it is common for the eyes to be invovled with RP. i am away for vacation, as is my opthomologist, so any advice will be appreciated. also, i am not diabetic, and am thin.
