A couple of months ago a very painful dull ache started behind my right eye socket.
It's gotten worse in the past week and has caused vision changes that have kept me in bed the past 2 days to avoid movement and light.
I'm a bit nervous and am not sure if I should ask for an opthanmology appt because this is unrelated to some serious issues that may or may not be unrelated. I have not mentioned the eye pain to Dr.
CT scan's were done to head and abdomen recently and an oncology surgeon referral was made, but not sure why.
should I treat eye pain as separate issue and see someone before the referral that's not for another 40 days.
