Deep Pain in Eyes From PC + Referred Nerve Pain - Need Help!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi

This is an unusual post and I'm sure not many people can relate to this, but I am desperate for any kind of answer after having gone to 2 ophthalmologists, 2 neurologists, MRI and blood tests.

I have this problem where, when I look at different types of computer screens I develope very bad pain behind my eyes (feels like deep pain in the optic nerve or behind the eye) - this then causes a ripple effect of referral pain to my occipital nerves at the back of my head (flares up) and to the nerves on top of my scalp and just above my ears. This is accompanied by deep deadaches and stiff jawline as well that basically puts me into a state of psychoses where I become unable to think, am affected cognitively, am moody, aggressive, and become almost out of my mind because of the pain and strain all over my head and behind the eyes - I cannot even sleep because of the pain/strain. It last for many days and is triggered by computer screens and ANY type of gaming - watching gameplay videos etc. Glasses have had little effect after trying many. My whole face goes deep pale white and I get halo grey rings around my eyes - I look like a damn cancer patient.

This problem has deeply affected my life, health wise and employment wise and no doctors understand anything about it. I will mention that I have been on SSRI and antidepressant medications in the past and it has become much worse since I came off those meds.

      Hi

      Unfortunately not. I got referred from the ophthalmologist to the neurologist and that's were it stopped as they had no idea what it was after blood tests and MRI. I cannot even describe how annoyed and angry I was that they had not even a shred of an answer. I was wandering what sort of specialist I would see anyway?

    This sounds to me like what I have. As far as I can tell its caused by TMS, if you look up the TMS Wiki on your chosen search engine, that site is a fantastic resource into what you may be experiencing. The structured recovery program its worth going through as it really opens your eyes metaphorically speaking to what may be going on due to your mind and body.

      Thanks. I have never heard of this and will look into it. Sometimes I feel like the EMF radiation coming off computers and screens also plays a part in the pain or flare ups of the nerves on my head in addition to looking at the screens. Sometimes you can actually put your hand on my head and feel deep heat coming off the inflamed areas.
