About 6 months ago, I came into contact with a lot of dust from some very old loft insulation. Ever since the incident my eyes have been through the wars from burning, tearing, stining etc and have been on a number of different drops and sprays etc and am quite happy now with Hylo-Tear to help the dry eye problems. About a month ago I noticed a dull nauseating pain coming from the the outer corner of the right upper eyelid (lacrimal gland I believe) and it really made me feel depressed as could not see anything wrong with the eyes or surrounding area from the outside. I went to the doctor who said that it could be a bit of "hysteria" due to all the agony I have been through with these eyes and sent me on my way which I was not impressed with. I decided to then, a few weeks laster, to go to A&E eye unit at my nearest hospital as wanted to get an answer as to what my eye problem is, he took a look under a slit lamp and said that I have "Blepharitis" and said to have regular warm compresses, clean eyelids (even though they don't look red and no crusting). I have now been doing what he said but now the same pain that took me in my right eye happened in my left and really pushed me to the lowest of the low. It has eased but I live in fear / panic of the pain coming back in either of both. I want to go back to the hospital but scared they may push me away and say you are just making it worse by panicking all the time. Can someone tell me if this kind of pain is normal with Blepharitis and why has it only started 6 months down the line. Also, is it really "Blepharitus"; as I don't have any crusting on my eyelashes or redness / dryness of my eyelids at all. They look perfectly healthy. I am really at my wits end with all this and fear that I could lose my job and everything at this rate, as I am just so severely depressed over this
