I am a 22 year old female and have not had a problem with my eyes before. For the past 10-11 days, I was getting constant headaches which lasted for almost the whole day. The pain was like a heavy, tight band which stretched across my forehead and near the top of my eyes. My eyes began to feel tight too and I could feel some pain behind them. I went to the Doctors and was told that it could be tension headache and I was prescribed Co-Codamol which, thank God, has taken the pain of the headaches away. However, since yesterday I have noticed that my left eye is feeling a little different and strange compared to my right eye. I had some white tissue in my hands and when I covered up my right eye, I could see a yellow/brownish patch on the tissue, but when I covered up my left eye, I could see the tissue normally. If I look at anything with my left eye only, I can see this shadowy patch. When I look with both eyes, I don't see the patch anymore but I can sense that there is something not quite right with my left eye. It feels like it is covered, almost as if I am wearing sunglasses on one eye and not on the other. I don't know if this and the headaches I have been experiencing are connected but I am really starting to get worried about this. I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me with this. Thank you very much for your time.
