I am currently on day 12 of quite a severe case of viral conjunctiviti as diagnosed by my doctor.
So far I am getting on with it. One of the things that is really unpleasant and causing me a problem though is the gritty painful sensation in my eyes that becomes really noticeable whenever I close my eyes and gets gradually worse and worse until it is excrucitaing and forces my to open my eyes. This has been making sleep impossible for several days now.
To try and help with this so far I have used liquid gel eye drops, anti viral eye drops, various compresses hot and cold, ice. I have tried sleeping in different positions eg my head higher / lower than my body. I have tried camomile tea both dribbled in the eyes or as a comress, steam face baths, hot baths before bed. Have tried gently rubbing with baby shampoo and warm water. Have tried sleeping at different times of day or night. Have even been given and taken sleeping tablets.
So far none of these things is helping at all. It is the same burning gritty pain that grows in intensity that is keeping me awake every night.
Could anyone suggest anything that may work that I have missed from this list? Any ideas would be appreciated..
