OMG!! Something dreadful is wrong with my eye..

Aug 20, 2016 10:51 AM

Hey all. Hope this finds everyone doing well. Sending hugs and prayers, good vibes and giggles to each and every one of you.
My left eye started to hurt me the other day. Well, I got up this morning and I have a HUGE blister like thing on the inside of my eyelid which is rubbing on my cornea when I blink and they eye is red and all around it, swollen and very painful. Going to have to see the eye specialist when I get home. I may just go to Urgent Care when I get home tomorrow OR go to the doctor on Monday. Hoping it eases up thought...... Ughhhhh πŸ™„

This is what the eyeball is starting to look like. And I think that what you're looking at on my eye is like either blisters or some goobie stuff.. πŸ™„πŸ‘€πŸ˜³

Don't wait. Get it looked at right away.

Aug 20, 2016 11:49 AM

Yeah I agree if it's really painful get it looked it ASAP. It's your eye which is delicate!

Aug 20, 2016 11:54 AM

There's 2 concerns. Is it contagious and if there's blisters could it be shingles if so it's dangerous to your site not to mention the nerve pain that can come with it.

Aug 20, 2016 12:16 PM

Thanks all... I'll go to Urgent care. It's not shingles, it's INSIDE my eyelid..πŸ˜‰

Gibber, you didn't frighten me hon. I promise and I thank you so much for your concern. The nearest clinic is over an hour away so I'll be going in the morning on the way back home.πŸ’•πŸ˜Š

Ok good. Take care. :)

Aug 20, 2016 5:29 PM

Omg!! This happened to me a week ago and it infected both eyes! Wet a cloth and press is against your eye and di not touch it with your hands while you wait for your appointment!!

Aug 20, 2016 5:33 PM

Wear a eye patch when you sleep. I rubbed my eyes when i was asleep and it hurt so bad... I cut out some lace detail and glued it on a eye patch

What was it GemStoneStrong? An infection called what?

Aug 20, 2016 7:29 PM

I don't know. I dumped out some sitting water at my sisters house and it smelled awful. I think I may have touched my eyes. It hurt

Aug 20, 2016 7:31 PM

Sounds painful. Thanks for reply.

Aug 21, 2016 6:34 PM

Thanks so much Flappsy!! I appreciate the link. I'm going to the doctor in the morning. It's really hurting and my vision is getting blurry.
I hope that you're recovering from your surgery with no complications. You've been in my thoughts and prayers. Much love and {{{Hugs}}} headed your way.πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

I hope is notging too serious. Please update as soon as you see your dr. Best wishesπŸ™…πŸ™…

Loving the eye patch πŸ˜‰

Aug 22, 2016 6:35 AM

This is what my eye looks like this morning. It's hurting and I can't see well. I don't know what that is attached to my pupil and there is NO flash so whatever you're seeing IS exactly what it looks likeπŸ˜’πŸ™„

Aug 22, 2016 1:23 PM

Hello my fellow pain warriors!!! Just a quick update... I went to the opthamologist and he checked my eye and there was something imbedded inside my eyelid. It got very infected and actually effected my sinus on that side and he (it was dreadful) picked my eye with a tweezer and pulled the blister apart and then pulled out all the infected tissue and put medicine in it. 😒😳 Then he prescribed this gel medicine that stings and makes my vision very blurry to clear the infection. What you see in this picture πŸ™„πŸ‘€ is infection that he had to numb my eye and detach from the eye so I could see. It's raw, swollen and hurts like a MF.. However, I'm off the Orthopaedic Doctor because my shoulder dislocated yesterday and again this morning in the shower so they squeezed me in to be seen so I'm off to be pulled and probably get a cortisone shot among other shit.. So when I get back I'll lay in the driveway and have my mother drive my truck over my body so it will take my mind off the other pains.. LMAO!!! Cheers!!!πŸ’•πŸ˜ŠπŸ‡πŸ«

Dang kathy. You've had a rough weekend away. I'm so sorry .i hope u managed to get some fun in there.

Aug 22, 2016 5:05 PM

Oh dear, I hope the eye resolves quickly you don't need that on top of everything else!

Aug 22, 2016 6:10 PM

Alwayz, jeepers! I'm thinking if it were me: Do your best to stay calm. Think of ways to distract yourself. Radio programs, sleep, yummy snacks. You just have to make it from now till relief shows up. And it will.

Aug 22, 2016 8:48 PM

AlwayZ, I told you not to be using a lasso on those horses! πŸ˜‰ I'm sorry to hear about your shoulder, on top of the eye infx (infx=infection). Hopefully you'll feel much better in a few days. Hugs love and prayers everything heals quickly! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Aug 22, 2016 8:52 PM

You poor thing! This week has been hard on you. I hope you recover soon.

Aug 22, 2016 8:54 PM

AlwayZ, patience, patience and more patience!! I agree with 7autoinmunes, find something that make you feel good or at least that takes your mind of the pain for a moment. Right now you need to edulge your self on everything that you like and enjoy. I'll have you on my prayers and hopefully, soon youl feel fineπŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

When I was at the orthopedic doc, they gave me 5 pound weights to get a good shot of what's going on in there. The shoulder dislocated and I passed out.. LOL!! (At least I did it gracefully.. The wall
Was behind me and I slid down the wall). When I finally got up and they got it back in (another joyful event... πŸ™„) they took more X-rays and then said that there needs to be surgical intervention but they don't know whether to pin it or replace the shoulder because the bone may not hold up to the hardware.. The "shoulder guy" wasn't there to give a second opinion so I have to wait for a call. So, in the meanwhile, I've got a black eye with dreadfully red eyeball and my shoulder is just wonky!! Oh the joy and rapture of having all these issues.. Tomorrow will be a better day.. 😜😝😊

Aug 23, 2016 5:07 PM

Omg, AlwayZ!!! I'm glad you weren't seriously injured passing out. My sister did that once and knocked all her teeth out in front. My dad had rotator cuff tear repaired and over 4 years it scared up so badly he couldn't use it at all. He had a total joint replacement and that is doing very well now. You please be careful and take it easy...REST! Hugs love & prayers nothing else goes wrong. πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Aug 23, 2016 6:07 PM

Thanks Flappsy.. No worries... Like I said. Since the wall was there, I went down gracefully (I thinkπŸ™„πŸ˜³). Today my tailbone and my back hurt as well as all else but.. The good thing is that I've got a big enough ass that I don't think I did too much damage other than to my pride.. LOL!!!
Hope all is well with you. Love, {{{Hugs}}} and prayers.πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

Aug 23, 2016 8:52 PM

You are too funny! Love you girl... Get some rest! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Aug 23, 2016 9:08 PM

Oh my goodness Always what a rough week. I'm glad you got your eye looked at. Here's hoping your on the mend now and you ask no one to run you over. <3

Aug 23, 2016 9:24 PM

Ugh, sorry you had to go through that. Next week is bound to be better. In the mean time these are for you🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

Aug 24, 2016 2:35 AM

LOL.... Lula and the Bells!!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Aug 25, 2016 6:12 PM

I am sorry Alwayz that you have to put up with that. It seems that no matter what it is when it comes to the eye, it is such an irrattable thing. I hope it gets better soon. I wouldn't wait very long to see someone. Somethings can make you blind if not treated promptly even if only one eye. Best wishes.

Aug 26, 2016 5:23 PM

Profiler!!! Where have you been my friend? Is everything ok? I've missed seeing your posts and chatting with you. Sending best wishes and hope you'll be sticking around for a long while.{{Hugs}}πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š
