    Hello there.

    May I ask you when you last had a thorough eye test? It is difficult to know where to start without that bit of information.

    Best wishes.

      Hi Raysmufi

      In that case, a visit to your GP would be better advised than your Optician, and I can see you have received that advice from another contributor, so I echo that.

      Let me just say that I am sorry you are in pain. Usually I would advise anyone that has experienced a headache for three continuous days or longer to seek further medical advice, so I recommend that very strongly in your case just as I would for anyone else with the same condition.

      Remember that if you are taking painkillers of any kind without medical supervision, it is essential that you follow the dosage instructions, especially if you are using Paracetamol.

      If the pain becomes unbearable and you have taken the maximum recommended dose for a 24 hour period, DO NOT be tempted to take an extra couple of tablets. You will exacerbate the problem. Seek medical help and advice straight away. You don't need to wait for a GP appointment, just go to your local chemist and speak to your Community Pharmacist.

      I sincerely hope you are feeling better soon.

      Best wishes to you.  smile
