FOR A FEW MONTH, I AM HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MY RIGHT EYE. EVERY MORNING, AS SOON AS I WAKE UP, I HAVE PAIN IN MY RIGHT EYE. ALSO MY RIGHT EYELID WON'T OPEN BY ITS SELF. I OPEN IT WITH MY FINGERS, AND THE MORE MY EYELID OPENS, THE MORE PAIN I HAVE.
ODDLY, AFTER A SHORT TIME OF ADJUSTING TO THE LIGHT, MY PAIN IS GONE! THE PAIN SEEMS TO BE GETTING WORSE OVER TIME.
IF ANYBODY HAS KNOWLEDGE OF THESE SYMTOMPS AND AN ANSWERS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
PEACE, LOVE AND HAPPINESS
Thanks for your question. There are a number of different possibilities
that should be investigated:
1. Local irritating process; is your eye "injected"/blood-shot" in the
morning, only on the right side? Is there some type of secretion around
your right eye lid that indicates an unilateral problem? If these
symptoms are present, you should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist.
2. More central processes, such as an atypical headache; the irritative
character of the light initially in the morning which later dissipates,
the regularity of the symptoms always in the morning, could indicate
a cyclical presentation of a headache. Because it has already been
going on for a few months, it's unlikely that it is a cluster headache,
on the other hand, the relatively quick resolution of the symptoms in
the morning (a few hours/minutes???) makes a migraine headache less
likely. If the characteristics of your symptoms doesn't quite fit
the scenario #1 (above), maybe you should consider a visit to a family
I hope this information is helpful. Best of luck.
