I have only had BP for a week and I'm truly holding out for hope I will fully recover

Posted , 3 users are following.

My doctor gave me prednisone and a steroid and artificial tears. My mouth is the worst but I haven't experienced any pains yet I've only been dealing with this for a week. But I eye tears up uncontrollably which is bothersome when trying to drive my children somewhere. I am a single parent of eight oldest fifteen and youngest three and I'm 47yrs old. My kids are my biggest supporters. But I welcome any outside advice. Pls continue to give me hope

    Have you seen an eye dr. I have been under the care of one for 5 months. My eye finally closed on its own after 4 months. I do eye gel 6 times a day, have tear duct plugs, and an eyelid plug. This can cause the cornea to scratch if not treated. Good luck.

      I hadn't been under the care of an eye doctor but I will make an appointment now knowing that my corneas can get scratched. I thank you so much for the tips. I also do exercises with my face and I apply a warm towel at night. I have also met and talked personally with people that have it five and ten yrs ago and to talk to them my wouldn't even know they once had it. One lady told me that her Pastor told her to call out all of the names of the people that hurt her because she could have been holding on to some resentment which can cause a pressure build up and give it to God. That might work as well

      It isn't necessary to see an eye dr.  Anyone that you have seen should have told you to cover the eye until it closes on it's own.  I bought an eye patch at the drug store.  I think I wore it 3 or 4 months just at night.  It is to prevent scratching the cornea while you sleep.
