Eye issues; pain in feet

Posted , 14 users are following.

HI ladies,

Just wondering if anyone else has multiple issues with their eyes? I've been to the eye doctor multiple times with floaters, eye pain, burning eyes. everything looks healthy. I am on the tail end of perimenopause. could it be the culprit?

Also, recently having a lot of pain in my feet. Has anyone else experienced this? Anxious about it, so not really looking for suggestions of other disease possibilities, just wondering if other ladies have had it.

    hi Cindy - out of nowhere, i developed blepharitis with my eyes - non-stop watery, inflamed, blood shot eyes - also have ocular rosacea - i go to Dermatologist he says its ocular rosacea, go to opthamologist he says its blepharitis - all i know is i never had either before this stupid menopause - yes, out of nowhere i developed achilles tendonapthy on both of my feet, like overnight - no one in my family has this & i have never bern a runner or athlete for that matter - i do double up on my omegas to try & ward off my achy legs & feet, sometimes i think it doesnt help until the days i forget to take it & then i feel it - everything has gone haywire with this menopause - its nuts!

      Debra, I had achilles tendonitis for a few years and it was so painful. I have eliminated it by wearing Birkenstocks during the day and Crocs when home. If you wear shoes with a high and solid in-step, it cures the problem. Avoid flat soled shoes.

      hi staci - oh yes, my achilles tendonapathy used to kill me with pain, not so much anymore. Now i am just left with a disgusting bump on the back of my heels & have to wear 1/2 larger shoe size to accomodate the bump. i cant really wear closed heeled shoes anymore. Yes, cute shoes are a thing of the past, i am all about the comfort - for me, Vionics & Merrills offer the best support, because they have cushy heel pads. i blamed this happening to me on the blood pressure Rx that i was taking for 5 years that was a calcium channel blocker, now i am not so sure it wasnt just a massive drip in hormones & yes, i rarely go barefoot anymore because i need constant support for my feet -

    Hello! My eyes are my main issue. I had my first migraine with aura almost a year ago. Since then, my vision has been odd. I have 24/7 blurriness, flashes, floaters, light sensitivity, after images, etc., etc., etc.. I have been to several eye doctors...nothing out of the ordinary. No answers. It is frustrating. You are not alone. xo

    Yes! I'm nine years post menopausal, but had no symptoms until 2014. Dry eyes, watery eyes. Here lately it's been floaters, which I've had for years, but I seem to notice them more. I also have had eye pain. I'm trying not to freak out as I am not working right now and and no insurance to see my eye specialist.

    A few years ago I when I would get up in the morning it was like the bottom of my feet were sore. That did go away and I haven't had it since.

    You are not alone. I pray all the time. Prayer and this forum have helped me.

    Yes, I have eye issues too. I have sensitivity to light, dry eyes, blurriness, pain around my eyes, sore tired eyes, floaters, you name it, I pretty much have it! I have been to an ophthalmologist and optometrists but they all say my eyes are fine aside from a bit of deterioration due to age. I wear glasses that have been specially made for me, they have a blue light filter, anti-fatigue, 20% tint and have a 0.5 prescription. I find these help a lot and allow me to do computer work, which is my full time job, so thank goodness for that! So it seems that hormones can cause many eye issues. Who would have thought. Lately I have had burning and tingling in my feet amongst MANY MANY other symptoms. I am 3 years into peri and hope this will end soon. I hope it does for you too.

    Yep! Eye pain, headaches and very achy feet and legs. Mostly all on my right side. Not sure the cause but it did seem to start the same time as my period started changing 2 yrs ago. I pray you feel better!

    Yes I get the fuzzy vision and floaters from time to time. I also have been experiencing feet issues especially my right foot. I am right-footed like when I walk or am standing, I bear more weight on my ride leg. I went out to dinner tonight for relative's birthday and we a lot of walking to the restaurant and back. I haven't really walked that much in a long time. My right foot is throbbing now. I used to walk all the time when I was younger. Some Sundays at my church, I am an usher and it's been getting harder to stand up all through a worship service on that bad foot. I have been looking for good shoes that supports flat-footed people because I have no arches in my feet. As I've gotten older and certainly since Peri has begun, my feet woes have increased. Another thing to tack on to the menopause list.
