Dry/sore eyes

Posted , 10 users are following.

Hello,

Just starting to experience a sort of soreness around my eyes. Don't know if they are a little bit dry as well, often find myself rubbing them. There is a sore/dry patch on the outside of my right eye. Has anyone else been troubled by this? Is it a side effects of meds, I take Amitriptylene? Wecome any advice, thanks

Take care, Anne

    Hi. My gp recently put me on Amitrypliline and told me that I would start to feel some relief in 2 weeks. At the start of the 3rd week my pains got worse and I mean the worse ever to the point I nearly overdosed cause I couldn't handle the pain. I know this pill affects people differently. I stopped taking it and now have to wait 2 weeks before I can see my gp again. I have said this before that I have lost all faith in docs after all the pushing here there and everywhere and being treated like a Guinean pig with all the different meds I've been giving.

      Hello Alig,

      Sorry to hear you have had a bad experience with Amitriptylene. I have found it helpful, luckily my Doc doesn't believe in giving lots of different meds. I hope you manage to find a doctor you can trust, and who knows about Fibro.

      Take care, Anne

    only effects me when lying down my eyes will run.

    it could be a side effect of meds, but there is also a condition forgive me i cant remember the name that causes very dry and sore eyes where the fluid has to be replaced via drops .so pardon the pun .KEEP AN EYE ON IT.

    Hi Anne, I was prescribed eye drops by the gp. I don't need to use them all the time but get dry eyes in bouts. Can be a side effect of some meds.

    Hi Anne, there is a separate condition of ME/CFS which is the dry eyes and posiibly dry mouth too.  Which I have come acroos during google research before.  I've been on Amitriptylene 30mg for over a year now and don't personally have that side affect. Good luck googling xx

      Hello Julie,

      Thanks for your reply. I shall certainly do some more research on it, as I do get a dry mouth as well -put that down to not drinking enough water, which I don't!

      Take care,Anne

      Sicca syndrome - Sjogrens Syndrome.  Google recommends you definately see your doctor cos it could lead to more serious problems internally if it is due to certain somethings (you can tell why I didn't become a doctor - hee, hee). Good Luck

      Hello James,

      Thanks for your reply, much appreciated. So it might possibly be just one of those things to put up with, when you have Fibro. Oh well, used to that!

      Take care, Anne
