eyes and ears

Postby JDWench » Sun Mar 16, 2014 1:38 pm

For the last few days I've had very sensitive ears at first they ached a little but now they're just extremely sensitive to loud noises, I had cotton wool in my ears at work the other day because I couldn't cope with noise! Then last night whilst watching a film I found I couldn't cope with certain lighting and had to wear sunglasses! I wear prescription glasses anyway and was wearing them at the time. I'm just wondering if this is fibro related or if my body is fighting me in other ways?

I shan't bother my poor gp then. They already know what my illness is. It's just not very pleasant but then again nothing about this is.

Being sensitive to noises, sounds, smells etc isn't at all unusual with FM. If this is something new that you are experiencing tho, having it checked out, just to be sure there isn't anything else at work might be something to consider.

If my ears are still bad by Wednesday (it'll be a week then) I might go see a nurse to make sure there's nothing else. Thank you :)

I also think it is good for your gp to know what is happening and to have everything documented if you need to claim benefits. good luck.

Went to the nurse today she said I'm just really run down and need to rest. Easier said than done.

I've been having trouble with my ears since before Xmas, told I had a bad infection. So 3 different antibiotics and drops later I went to see,a,specialis last week.
Until I saw this post I thought he didn't know what he was on about, but he,says the pain is due to my RA and fibromyalgia, and referring me for physio. I asked about the,sensitivity to noise as its really bad, he just said put cotton wool in your ears.
My eyes,also go blurry, and driving is getting hard esp as the day is turning darker, my eyes go really sensitive to light.
This fibro gas,a lit to answer for.

It's eased off now thankfully!
Cotton Wool works but I can't hear how loud I'm talking and people keep asking if I have a sore throat because I'm trying to lower my voice lol.
I'm giving my amitriptyline another month before I see the doctor. I want her to see me at my worst because I never tell anyone how bad it gets I smile and make jokes all day then when I'm alone I cry. People don't want to see unhappy faces and my boyfriend just thinks I'm a bit achy because I haven't got the patience to try and explain.

Hi All
Since I had my second cataract removed in September last year, I was able to just wear off the peg reading magnifiers (surgeon said this was fine) but now, for some reason, I find that my peripheral vision has deteriated and this causes me to trip over things that I don't see and bump into things to my right and left. Could this be a fibro thing? After thinking that I was going to get away with only wearing reading specs, after wearing bifocal and varifocals for years, I will probably have to go back to them. :(

Has anyone else had an experience like this?
