For the past week both my eyes have been stinging, and watering to to point I have to keep wiping the outer corner of my eyes to remove excess liquid and I've had to moisturise the sides to alleviate soreness from the constant wiping. This stinging and watering is all day every day, no respite.
This happened to me maybe 18 months ago, exactly the same symptoms, all day every day again, only it went on for at least 6 months, maybe more, I can't quite remember exactly how long but It felt like a lifetime and severely affected my mood as I saw no end to it in sight.
Every doctor to spoke to said hayfever, or maybe some kind of eye infection, but every prescribed medication was useless, nothing had any affect. I was given various eye drops, some were for hayfever and some for the suspected eye infection.
Ultimately everything I've read or heard about hayfever makes me think this is not hayfever because it is persistent, all day everyday. AFAIK hayfever often gets better / worse at certain times of the day, and again better / worse on different days depending on the pollen count that day. I've not noticed any significant difference day to day on how much my eyes sting or how much they are watering, it's pretty much the same every day regardless of the weather.
Does this sound like hayfever to you? I'm only a week in to this right now, but the thought of this happening for another 6 months is incredibly depressing...
