Hi there, I'm 33 and have had several bouts of episcleritis in my left eye for the past 18 months now and I have only been to the doctor once for them to confirm it is that.
My last bout started at the end of May when my house almost flooded. It then started to disappear until I had to take my mum to the hospital and then it returned like a thief in the night.
After reading lots of forums I think that stress is a huge factor for my condition along with diet. I'm currently not eating as much meat as I used too but I think I'm going to start taking more vitamins and also look at trying to control my stress.
I'm so glad to know I'm not alone in this. I hate having it as people comment and It annoys me so I think worrying about what people are thinking when they talk to me also doesn't help with stress.
I also won't take anything over the counter for my eye as I feel it'll just make it worse. It's about treating the cause, not the symptoms.
I also suffer from athletes foot and gum disease so I know there is another underlying problem here that needs to be addressed. I have also suffered from blepharitis in the past too.
So I'm going to address my diet, I do exercise regularly anyway, look at some vitamin supplements and also look at addressing my stress levels.
Any help would be much appreciated, ironically it's starting to get me down.
