Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi, I was wondering if you could help me with my symptoms. I can be a bit of a hypochondriac & automatically assume the worst. I have been having eye twitching, I say twitching but it seems more like contractions. It happens every single day and it can be my lower and upper lids that contract. I have terrible aching/pressure around/behind/above my right eye since about October 2012 along with headaches and sharp pains shooting thru my head. I have been to the Health care Dr. & the eye Dr. The eye DR said my eyes were perfectly fine. My family Dr sent me for an MRI. My MRI came back that I had mastoiditis and they explained to me that basically I had an air pocket in my mastoid and they presribed me to dymista nasal spray. I have been taking that since Feb. The eye twitching and pressure hasn't stopped. it has actaully been getting worse and now I am beginning to experience pressure/pain on my left eye as well. It also seems to be worse after a night of drinking wine (does that mean anything)? please Help...
Dr. David, Thank you for that reply, I will contact my DR and set up an appt. to get my blood levels checked... Would that also be what causes 'charlie horses' in my toes/feet almost daily? Also, does that go hand in hand with the pressure/aches I feel behind my eye's and around them? I don't really know how to describe it. Sometimes it feels like the skin on my face around my eye is drawing up, and then other times it aches like an arthritis would in someones hand directly behind my eye. Then sometimes it feels like there is so much pressure behind my eye that my eyeball will pop out of socket. Its very disturbing.
