okay so this all started with one single red spot in my right eye. The next day my left eye was red when i pulled down my eyelid. Over the next few days that went away but i not have orange/yellowish discoloration in the part of my sclera thats not exposed. Theres no bumps or anything but everytime i pull down its slightly yellow/orangish and theres random veins going everywhere. It honestly looks dirty but not brown kinda dirty. My inner lower eyelid also has these red veins in them that creates a circle. all these eye changes followed symptoms such as chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, fatigue, extreme everyday headaches, cough for more than 3 weeks, and multiple other symptoms. Could this be jaundice? Its not yellow in the part of rhe sclera thats visible tho. Like when i look left and right they become visible but if im looking straight on u can barely see the yellow. But when i pull my lid down in natural lighting its got this tinge of yellow and vessles are going everywhere in ever direction some pink some blue. Its just worrisome bc of all my symptoms. Ive also had swelling in ankles and distended stomach. Ive done some tests and am waiting for results but i didnt see the eye thing until a week and a half ago so i havent mentioned that to my gp yet. What could it be?

    Oh i should also say i've had a decrease in vision. I have glasses but im only meant to wear them so i can see things on the board at school like my vision was never horrible just a lil bad and id be okay if i forgot my glasses at home but now i even have to move my book or phone to a certain length from my face in order to see and done even ask me about being able to see things on the board. Its literally fuzzy unless my teacher writes big enough

      Does not sound like jaundice,your whole white portion would be tinged. Ive had the slight yellow tinge inside my loser eyelid. The white part boardering the inside lid tissue,i used to worry about jaundice,that has ben on and off for years.

    Hi. Your overall symptoms including the eye problem sound like auto immune disease. You really should have your eyes checked.

    Please speak to your doctor about that and ask him to check your inflammatory markers. They don't usually do that as standard.

      Because of the range of symptims you describe. I have auto inmune disease and the pattern of symptoms is the same.

      Thank u so much. Would u mind me asking which autoimmune disease u have? I have a huntch that i might have lupus and have had this huntch for quite some time. I get all these symptoms and i got to the doctor about them and then they go away by the next visit but instead im presented with a whole lot of other symptoms its quite frustrating

      Hi. I have Behcet's disease. Very similar to Lupus. Lots of crossover symptoms. They are very difficult illnesses to diagnose. Tjat is why having your inflammatory markers and ana tested wpuld be a good idea. They are indicators of auto immune disease. Often these illnesses are diagnosed on history with some indicators in blood tests.

      Please ask your doc to refer you on to a specialist to have lupus ruled in or out. Your doc cannot refuse to refer you if you have a lot of pro lematic symptoms going on. He can't diagnose Lupus. Tale care and gpod luck.

    Bless you Dear, Regarding eyes, i think it is an inflammation  which probably viral and associated with virla pharyngitis and artheritis. boost you immunity with rest, hot drinks, vitamin C, and soothing eye drops and i hope you will be fine soon.
