Customer Question
Hi. I woke up...

Hi. I woke up yesterday with a bloodshot eye. Mainly below the pupil when I pull the bottom lid down. There is also some yellowing. Earlier in the week the eyes were also quite gloomy. This appears to have now gone however.

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

Vision been fine. Not had eyes checked at the opticians for over 10 years.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing eye related. I've been on citalopram for 18 months. And also currently in holiday in a warmer climate than usual. Not sure if either of hose things are likely to be linked.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
