What is wrong with my eyes?

Last year I took sleeping pills for a month then one day I woke up with a hangover (from the sleeping pills not alcohol), I was fatigued, lightheaded, dizzy, and my eyes felt tired. Since then I have not been able to recover from that hangover and to this day I get eye pain and headaches regularly especially on only one side of my head. I used to smoke weed all the time and drink alcohol on occasion but ever since that day I can no longer tolerate it, whenever I use either the feeling in my eyes is exacerbated. I have done various tests and to this day none of the doctors that have seen me know what it is. Some have said it maybe due to anxiety, I went and exercised for a while and stayed clean but my eyes just don't get better, not even a little bit. I think I may be suffering from a form of migraine, I just don't know. Anyway thank you for reading and taking the time to answer my question.

    When was the last time you had your eyes tested by an optician? May be simple but constant eye strain.

      I actually went to see an eye doctor a couple of months back and she said she noticed my eyes were drying up faster than they normally should, maybe the other users who said I may have dry eye is correct.

      Hi Just seen your reply.

      My ophthalmoligist prescribed a cream to be instilled at night. Then he removed the concretions from my eyes . These measures improved my quality of life which was at a low level due to the constant irritation, soreness and headaches.

      ​If the dr you saw did not prescribe any treatment then I would strongly advise you to go to an eye hospital where they have an emergency eye clinic. A and E are not really adapted to deal with dry eyes and will only tell you to see your GP.Are u based in the UK?

      ​There are several eye hospitals but I do not know which is the nearest to you.

      Yes,it could be dry eye but when was the last time you had your eyes tested to see if you need glasses for reading or driving? Looking at a screen can give dry eyes. People forget to blink.        .
