i am 20 years old and from the uk. and i am sorry if i ramble in my
last april i began having a numb pain in my left templ.it went on for
months not knowing what it was.i began to worry and went to the
doctors etc, had a ct brain scan. no problems. i had my eyes checked
and was told that i needed glasses for like watching the tv/computer
or when my eyes were tired. i didnt feel i did, so i never took them
up on this.the headaches gave way to pains in my stomach and back
(kidney regions). i had tests yet no problems! so anyway
aroundoctober i felt as if my eyesight was changing, id get bloodshot
eyes at night through watching the tv whereas before i hadnt noticed
it. come december i had got floaters which were like solid floating
objects in my eyes. anyway i also began to notice a small o shaped
cell like object in my left eye. now this has got worse and has
become more like 3. i went on a plane recently and when i looked from
the plane i noticed lots more. now i am worried that my eyes will get
worse, however i have now taken up the glasses and also had the
optician put drops in my eyes to see what he can see. he says this is
normal and they wont go away. now does anyone have any advice for me?
please. i did get in touch with a laser doc in usa who said in not
much different words, get on with your life, ignore them as they wont
kill you. however i feel this is the cause of my headaches as i get
them occasionally now and my left eye becomes like flared up with a
bloodshot eye if you understand me and sore feeling.
i am sorry to babble so much, but i have put this off for so long now
and would appreciate some help.
many thanks in advance.
