Episcleritis

Postby Claire Spong » Tue May 03, 2011 12:33 am

Not sure if its supposed to have 2 'p's or not!

For the second time since Christmas I have got Episcleritis. It is an inflamation of the blood vessels in the eye. Half of my eye is bright red and the other half is normal. The nurse at the out of hours surgery who I saw yesterday said it is common with inflamatory illnesses but fibro is not an inflammatory illness as such is it? A friend who is studying eye illnesses told me it is actually from the same virus as chicken pox and shingles so it may be just that I am run down.

Has anyone else had this?

I've never had this, or heard of it, but it sounds like you need a :hugs:

Hopefully someone who knows more about it will be along later, I hope it clears up for you soon :flowers:

Thanks for all your posts, it's not particularly painful, well not in comparison to everything else anyway. More uncomfortable and stings. It makes my eye sensitive to light too so an excuse to get the sunglasses out!
