I'm glad I found this forum since dealing with this problem alone has been quite miserable.
I had laser eye surgery (wavefront - zyoptix) almost a year ago. I've had dry eyes since immediately after the surgery; the doctor put me on restasis and I used it for about 7 months without improvement. After the 7 months, I just tried to ignore my dry eyes because I had other problems that I didn't think were related.
About the time of my surgery, I was having lots of sinus problems. I had congestion, a stuffy nose, and the worst symptom was the headaches (pressure behind the eyes). All the symptoms fit sinusitis and I went to a regular doctor and was treated with antibiotics. After my forth visit to the doctor, I didn't think it could be a sinus infection and figured that it might be environmental. I live near the beach and was certain that the house had mold - I figured that my sinus problems were a result of the mold. I tried using an sinus irrigator, the nasal sprays, and steroidal (flonase) without improvement. I also went to an ENT who told me that I had migraines and gave me migraine medicine (which didn't help and made me feel terrible).
I recently moved to a new place that definitely does not have mold and was hoping that this would help me condition. Unfortunately, as I type this message, I feel a mild headache, pressure behind me eyes, and my eyes are dry.
I've been suffering from these migraines/sinus headaches for about a year now and after moving, I can eliminate mold as the underlying cause. I started to research whether my laser eye surgery could cause migraines and I read a multitude of articles that explains how laser eye surgery causes dry eyes (I knew that) and how the dry eyes can cause both headaches and sinus problems. It would certainly be a good explanation for my symptoms...
Can anyone offer any insight? I would greatly appreciate feedback if someone has experienced anything similar.
