    Hi

    Has anyone mentioned thyroid eye . dry eye syndrome and/or  eye concretions, what medications are you taking.

    ​Have you hd any blood tests donee for auto immune diseases,. thyroid  disorder or Glandular fever?

    I was taking codeine for back pain although a small dose it caused severe eye problems and daily headaches.

    Started out in ER had blood work CT scan eye exam everything ok.  Went to two ophthalmologist.  Did all the usual eye tests another blood test nothing.  2nd ophthalmologist wanted MRI but have a pacemaker.  He is reviewing the CT scan and if they didn't check all areas involving the eyes he is going to order another CT scan first.  If need be pacemaker can be removed for MRI.  Have an appt. with neurologist in 2 1/2 weeks. Just wish this would go away.

      1) Your pain is located behind the eye?

      2) The pain is in both eyes?

      3) Do you know why and when it started?

      4) Do you have other symptoms besides the eye pain?

      Feels like it is in the eye.  Hurts most when I move the eye far up down left or right.  It is just in my right eye.  It started suddenly that's why I went to ER.  It started 18 weeks ago.  I have no other symptoms besides the eye pain.

      No mine is an older pacemaker but it's not just turning the pacemaker off they can do that.  It's the leads on the pacemaker that have the risk of heating up and damaging heart tissue.  Cardiologist said they used to do MRI on these pacemakers but now because the newer pacemakers are MRI compatible there get into legal issues if they do an MRI on non-compatible pacemaker and something should happen to go wrong. So he said if necessary he would remove the pacemaker and replace it with an MRI compatible pacemaker.  Hope it doesn't come to this.

      Just an update orbit of the eye looks good also.  Neurologist on Tuesday.  Opthalmologist are leaning toward in not being anything serious.  Did make the remark isn't the 1st time we could find a cause and it won't be the last.  They don't think the neurologist will come up with anything but another opinion doesn't hurt.  Nisan did yours go away yet?

    Moving forward no answer yet.  Opthalmologist is sending me to an eye doctor who specializes in the orbit of the eye.  If no results doing a second CT scan.  First one only covered the brain.  If I get any answers will post.  This is very frustrating and nerve wracking.

    Finally found out what was going on  Neurologist sent me to Flaum eye Center in Rochester.  Saw a neuro-opthamalogist  The eye lid on my eye was loose causing the tears to run out and leaving the eye dry .  With a very minor surgery he said he could make a cut in the corner of my eye and tighen the eye lid.  Dry eye was ruled out at first mainly because it is usually a problem with both eyes and has nothing to do with the eye lid.
