I'm a healthy female. Around a year ago the whites of my eyes turned completely red and i had horrendous headaches. I suffered facial pain around my brow bone and cheekbones. I went to A&E where i was referred by emergency appointment to see an opthamologist. This appointment wasn't until two days later - by the evening I simply couldn't wait this long. My temples were swelling and my sight was wavering so I went to a different A&E where I knew they had an eye department. After various tests two doctors told me I have episcleritis and i was prescribed drops.
I had two check up appointments where they said my eyes were still inflamed and I needed to continue with the drops.
I've struggled since and have seen various doctors who seem to do nothing. I saw a doctor this morning who told me that because my eyes aren't red, there is nothing they can do. I now know through research that i have scleritis and not episcleritis.
The doctor also informed me there was no paperwork from my last FIVE hospital appointments.I am at my wits end and no family or friends understand.
At work, unless my eyes are red no one thinks anything is wrong. I am in so much pain with my face and my eyes are sore to touch.
Can anyone reccomend anything to help? Please.
