In late December of 2015, I got rear-ended on the freeway - the driver who hit me was probably driving about 40 miles per hour. When I got hit, the back of my head smacked/hit my headrest, and it felt like my head hit a brick wall going at the speed of light. I can still see fine, however, I'm having strange effects with my eye balls - more specifically, at night, or in the morning when I wake up after sleep, (after the eyes have been just sitting still for a while) it feels like my eyeballs get sorta STIFF in my sockets, and when I move them around a bit, I almost feel like they are moving the stiffer eye muscles
, because it feels like my eye muscles sorta "crack" in a sense - much like cracking your knuckles - a similar sensation. During the day, the eyes don't have that "cracking-the-eye-muscle" feeling, BUT, my eyes still feel sorta like they've been dipped into a liquid concrete - sounds weird, but, what that means is, before the accident, I was able to move my eyes around so very smoothly, that it felt like nothing - however, NOW, after this rear-ending incident, I feel like the eye sorta has a "weight" to them, feels more bulgy, and its not as smooth nor easy to move my eyes around the sockets...I can still do it just fine, but it feels like the eye muscles feel sorta heavy, fatigued, and somewhat puffy...so that is what I'm experiencing...I was wondering, anatomically speaking...what is going on here? I hit the back of my head and my eyes feel weird...Did the impact of my head like hurt my eye muscles? Is this something you've heard before? Is this something that will ever go away, or does it seem permanent? Are there eye exercises I can do to make it go back to normal. Again, its very difficult to describe to you the sensation, it just feels like my eyes don't have the same seamless flow/tracking/movement than they did before - they feel like they've been dippped in like a liquid concrete..and now when I move my eyes around, it something that I think about because I feel the heaviness, as opposed to before - I would move my eyes around and wouldn't think about it because it was seamless...looking to your reply.
