Eye hurt, need help doctors don't know what it is

Posted , 5 users are following.

ok so my mom has been having a problem with her eyes for about a year now. she says her eyes hurt (she describes like a ache) constantly on the nonvisible part of her eye behind her eye 

lids on the very top of the eye, also she has fatigue, and blurryness half of the time(not all the time just half). she has gone to multiple doctors and specialist.

 1st doctor did a xray and ct scan he thought it was alergies but nothing showed up. 2nd doctor did tests and they were clear nothing behind her eye and no pressure 

behind her eye, and wanted her to wear reading glasses. 3rd doctor said everything was fine except she had the starting of cataracts and to continue wearing glasses 

and gave her eye drops. she says washing her eyes with antibacterial hand soap, closing her eyes, and sleeping are the only things that give her relief. also she says

 squinting makes them hurt worse. shes been having a very difficult time with it and the doctors wont do anything that will work. i dont know what to do i was hoping one of 

you may be able to help.

    It could be many things here: 

    Muscle pain in the eyes, 

    Glaucoma AMD, retinopathy. Check with a good ophthalmologist.

    Ideas sinus problem,something called posterior blepharitis,you can google this,and dry eye. Often the dry eye goes with the bleph. Also called mgd.

    Havethem specifically check the onner rims of her eye lids and say specifically for mgd. It is often missed.

    i googled it and showed her she says this lines up with everything she said and it makes sense if it is very often missed as many times as she has been to the doctor. thank you this really helps a lot

    She should ask for blood test (labs) in case of inflammation in body. She also should be checked for "Uveitis". Good Luck!
