For nearly two years I have had experienced severe to chronic pain in my right eye. Over the past two years, I have seen 4 doctors, including opthamologists, optometrists, and I am currently seeing a neuro-ophthalmologist. I have had a multitude of tests including 2 MRI's. Recently I have been experiencing floaters when I have the pain. The pain is becoming more frequent and more severe. At times I also experience a sharp line of pain straight through my brain.
Intranasal administration of lidocaine drops requires specific and, for many patients, difficult technique. The dose is 4%solution intranasally. Used with extreme caution in patients with marked hypoxia, severe respiratory depression, or bradycardia Not much is documented about this therapy ,it is an experimental abortive therapy,you should consult your neurologist about the side effects before going for it..

I wasn't really concerned about them until i read about cluster headaches, i've seen some pictures where they show the symptoms, and yes, the part of the brain that hurts (it changes time to time), thats the part where my eye lid closes a bit, even after the release of the pain. And it feels like the headache is around my eye everywhere, but sometimes the whole part hurts.
Only then can the appropriate treatment be given. Depending on the cause, local injections with steroids and anesthesia such as lidocaine into the area have provided some people with relief. Hernia repair, tendon and nerve surgery have also helped other patients. Medications such as carbamezepine and gabapentin (again, if available in your country) have also been helpful in nerve pain.

I've had this pain for almost five years now, and it has been getting progressively worse. I've tried physical therapy, lidocaine shots, acupuncture, massage, exercise, TMJ mouthguard, TMJ exercises, rest, heat, ice, anti-inflammatory meds, the meds I'm on now, new pillows, a new bed, yoga, and chiropractic care. The pain is primarily on the right side of my neck, but it also goes into my arm, shoulder, hand, back, trapezius, jaw, and head.
ask your doctor first but they are 1-Lidocaine patch 5% benefits are moderate, and combination therapy with other drugs is often necessary plus should be applied to intact skin and to cover the most painful area...hard!. 2-Capsaicin, the active compound in hot chili pepper (will need at least 4 to 6 weeks to start the full desired effect).
It is important to have a thorough baseline eye exam by an opthamologist before starting treatment. These meds can cause serious eye problems so you need the baseline exam in case you have problems during treatment. Most don't have problems, but some do.
I can't imagine waiting tables with a low hgb ! Running around AND carrying things...WOW! Eye drops can help with the sore eyes (I've used GenTeal when it got bad), but many times it's a result of dehydration. I upped my water intake, and it was gone. I had a rough spot about week 10-16 and again from week 30-42. In between I felt OK, with some even bordering on "good", but pretty much you have to roll with it for the greater gain.
No crackers, no french fries (unless DRENCHED in ketchup), gummi bears sparingly - always carry water, and have bottles of eye drops all over the place. (SIGH) I guess I should count my blessings. Thanks for responding.
I agonized about buying ten dollar eye drops and found out afterwards that something cheaper worked just as well. Hydrogen peroxide actually burns the tissue more, I'm glad that you are going to try something else. Good luck!

Benzalkonium Chloride or its closely related derivatives [which cause the same reactions] are found in many cosmetics, soaps, lotions, eye treatments including the antibiotics used to treat infections in the eye, eye drops and ointments, and the anesthesia used to numb your eyes before an eye exam. Luckily, I don't use any cosmetics and haven't for the past 20 years because my skin is so hypersensitive and that is due to the Hashi's.
I have just started using a daily vitamin supplement because of an eye problem (syptoms similar to glycoma, that might have been caused by Topomax) that I had just recently. The eye doctor the neurologist sent me to said that my eye was moving irratically and pulsing because of a lack of potassium. I still haven't found a way to stop the pains. I thought that I would just share my "story".
( THANK GOD for kids polysporin! it has lidocaine in it and numbs the area... but if it gets wiped off from her diaper she screams bloody murder and its heartbreaking tryingt o clean the area and quickly get more cream on it feels like forever waiting for the numbing to kick back in.... and currently she has an eye infection, my other daughter had a fever on and off and vomited the other night and now she has a rash on her tummy and armpits??
I still get these HDs 3-4 times a year and the ONLY thing what works is to treat them like a sinus infection and take antiboitics. If you can find a doctor who will prescribe 2% lidocaine to put into your sinuses (thru your nose - sounds gross - but it will stop the pain), and some A/B Otic Ear Drops QUA.
just like lotion for the rash, lemon water rinse for the taste, eye drops, etc. tx can get REALLy tiresome. How many weeks do you have left? I am on week 21/48...
The same pattern (cold sore followed by eye lid selling once the lip had healed) had occurred last time i had a cold sore outbreak (last summer). I had used a ciploxin eye cream and drops and it went away in 2 days. I started using Ciploxin drops again this morning and its already feeling better. However, the bigger question is- can this be caused by HSv1. If yes, then how do i find out and am i following the right treatment?
) I then tried to make an appointment at the ultrasound department and was told that the receptionist was away until monday!!!!! BY THIS POINT I JUST WANTED TO SPIT IN SOMEONES EYE!!!!!!!! I HAVE LEFT THE HOSPITAL FEELING ANGRY, CONFUSED AND COMPLETELY LET DOWN!!! Lets see what the endo has to say on the 24th jan?????
try rinsing your mouth with a few drops of stevia extract in water...also try tee tree oil.....
We started with antibiotics and drops which worked while I was taking the drops. Then the Doc did a culture and prescibed a new antibiotic, a creame and new drops. I experienced the same outcome and the symptoms returned immediately after the medicine ran out. The doc said she couldnt continue using the creame and drops because they had steroids in them.
Wanted to add that over the last 3-4 months I have been getting these crazy migraine headaches that feel like something is being pushed straight through my upper teeth through my jaw into my sinus and ear and into my eye! It's really wild. I've had migraines occasionally my whole life (even as a child of less than 5) and this is like a migraine, only more weird. Anyway...just thought I'd add that since you mentioned sinuses.
I've had this for many years and now it seems like it does not get better even though I been putting drops in my ears for over 2 months. I dont remember when I took this med before it affecting my hearing and now it seems like I keep getting blisters in my mouth. I feel like I'm falling apart. Is this related to peg and riba? because its driving me nuts.Dont know what to do on both but I will mention the mouth problem to my hep doctor as soon as I can. Any thoughts on this?
then the left...then went away then my eye..then went away..all that took up about a month out of my life to heal..just when i thought i was out of the woods..i got a zit to the right of my nose..didn't think anything of it and then the zit turned into a cyst and left light scarring under my eye..its gone now..i guess its all a part of getting older :( lol..i usesd warm rags most of the day that made the swelling go down gradually until it was gone..
2 ===================================== A non-Lyme specialist doctor might say these results are not positive enough to diagnose Lyme, but given how very long you have been ill, that you have such positive tests is, to my uneducated eye, significant. Has your MD considered doing IGeneX PCR testing?
Here are my symptoms... Right ear pain Right ear fullness/ringing Pain behind right eye spot headaches on right side grinding teeth at night stiff neck - going into my shoulders I had an MRI/MRA back in Oct and all it showed was chronic sinusitis which I am being treated for by my ENT however he knows the pain is not coming from my ear. I am worried. Could this be an aneursym? I know a tumor or something like that would have showed on MRI.

This week I am having pressure in the back of my eyes, went to the eye doctor said i had a small floater in my eye, nothing harmful at all, i do need to wear glasses though. I am told by alot of people that a headache is the last cause of a tumor, it starts off with seizures and vommiting up blood.... All this is just too much for me to handle, all i do is think about it whick i am sure it makes it worse, so i am going to the doctor tomorrow and demanding an MRI....
My cold spray legs feels like tiny drops of cold water misting on my legs but migrating over an area but only lasting for a few seconds. Do they know what causes your problem w/ that feeling?
