Hi everyone. This is my first time posting on here as I finally have decided I need to do somethin about the problems I have with my eyes. I have seen numerous doctors and specialists and have been given far too many drops to even count. About 10 yes ago I was diagnosed with mucous fishing syndrome. I have since seen doctors who say there is nothing wrong with me. Id like ur opinion please. Iv suffered for as long as I can remember but it has over the years gotten worse.
Iv always had sticky, mucousy eyes and tend to pull it out whenever I can. This doesn't bother me but sometimes the mucous is more like a film coverin the inside of the upper lid. This usually isn't as easy to get out. Using my finger I have to keep wiping it until it gathers at one side of my eye so that it will come loose and come out. The problem is that it doesn't always come out and will leave a stringy piece in my eye which will then scratch my eyeball. I will end up with swollen bloodshot eyes and the pressure that builds up behind my eyes causes headaches. I also look like i have a lazy eye wen im sufferin at my worst. When its really bad it can last for about a week. Iv recently just got over one of these episodes. It started in one eye and then the other. The eyes will b leakin and in the mornins they R 'glued' shut.
Iv noticed that if im near radiators or 'fake' heat they get worse. I also suffer with hayfever. Iv recently seen my optician who has advised I go back to my go and retry some former drops, tho iv never found any that seem to help. id really like to know if anyone else suffers like this and if it is actually mucous fishing syndrome or somethin else. Also whether it is hereditary as I have two children and would hate for them to suffer the same as me. Iv tried to give as much info as possible but will try to answer anyones questions if they have any. Id just really like to get this sorted and live a normal life! I'm so sick of wakin up each mornin wonderin if its goin to b a good day or a bad day. Thank u
