In December 2013, I started developing some right eye pressure and pain, about once or twice a week at night. I shrugged it off, thinking it was just eye strain.In January, I was at my Wednesday night billiards league, and the pressure in my right eye would not let up and got to the point where I had to actually tape my eyelid shut (I used medical paper tape). This proved to relieve some of the pressure, but still caused some discomfort, since the tape itched and the pressure was still there. The following afternoon, a migraine hit hard (no triggers) and I ended up in the ER. My eye pressure/pain and migraine was at a 9. I was given some wonderful drugs and sent home.
Since then, I have still been experiencing the eye pressure, with and without the pain. The pain usually doesn’t occur all of the time, but when it does, it doesn’t occur until night. The pressure is what is making me frustrated. I have been to an Ophthalmologist and my eyes are healthy. I have had CT scans, MRI’s and all kinds of tests- No abnormalities, just headaches/migraines. I just don’t know how much longer I can live with this eye pressure.
I am currently on Topamax (50mg 2x/day), Zanaflex & Imitrex. I do have an appointment with my neurologist on April 11 (cannot wait to see him).
So my question is this (sorry for the long story)… Do any of you have eye pressure and/or pain? If so, what, if anything relieves it?
