Eye burning and watering

Apr 15, 2016 1:54 PM

I was wondering if anyone else has this problem, it only happens in my left eye and only when I get deep sleep. It feels like somethings in there but I had my daughter look and there's nothing there, it just burns and waters, no itching. After which my eye is swollen and red and I get a headache behind the eye and on the left side of my forehead. HELP PLEASE

Have you looked into sjogrens? And what meds are on? Some can affect the eyes.

Bethann, is it migraines with an aura? I have migraines, and sometimes my left eye will water. 🙂💕🙏🌼

That sounds very much like a cluster headache (intense unilateral headache, eye watering and redness, pain in and around eye, usually occurring at night and can awaken a person from sleep). If so, there are medications that are quite effective, so it's definitely worth bringing up with your doctor.

Since my illness I have had issues with my eyes as well and have had to had several exams by the optomologist who prescribed medication I have to use before bed and when I wake up. It's always something. No problem before the chronic pain....and the numerous diagnosis.
