Having pain in neck left side, lower left sciatic pain, blurred vision left eye, now numbness and nerve pain left foot.

Spine specialist: I'm not sure how the blurred vision fits into a problem with your spine. I would suggest an eval from an ophthalmologist for that.

The cause of "sciatic pain" could very likely also cause the "nerve pain" in the left foot. An EMG test could help to give your doctor some answers about this.

A spine specialist in your area could help to diagnose the cause of the neck pain and the sciatic pain. ...Read more

I have been suffering from conjuctivitis for the last 10 days. Ihave been using antibiotic drops and drops for inflammation. Still I have watery eyes and blurred vision. Could it beanything serious?

Could be Viral: Conjunctivitis could be due to viral infection in which case antibiotics usually do not help and infact may cause even more uncomfortable eyes due to their potentials for allergy. Viral conjunctivitis may run its course and one can benifit from cold compresses and artificial tears. One should try to avoid rubbing the eyes. If symptoms persist, seeing an ophthalmologist is recommend. ...Read more

Thyroid eye disease: Thyroid disorders can cause a number of eye signs & symptoms, broadly classified as TED (thyroid eye disease). Interestingly, this is an auto-immune disease. The same antibodies that attack your thyroid, attack the orbital tissues around your eye, including the orbital fat that cushions & protects your eyeball, and the extraocular muscles that attach to your eyeball and move your eyes in all ways. ...Read more

Get it checked ASAP: At 57 years, you are not really in the age range for giant cell arteritis, but when scalp tenderness, headache, and blurred vision are used together, that condition should be ruled out (usually by lab testing initially).

Thyroid and eyes: If you had hyperthyroid graves disease, that could cause eye changes and GI problems. But you say your thyroid levels are, if anything, lowish, but actually normal. So your symptoms don't really fit with thyroid as an explanation. Talk to you doctor; maybe best to seek other causes. ...Read more

Migraine type headache, eye socket pain, temple pain, neck pain, and blurry vision all on the left side. Is this an emergency?

It may be bad, but: Bad is not the same as emergency - try to find a good headache specialist in your area. Yiur GP might refer or even a Univ Hospital directory or drug store may have referrals. ERs are full of trauma and possible contagion - if you need it, they are life saving. If not, go to a less stressful place.

Your eye md can help make the correct diagnosis and offer the appropriate treatment. ...Read more

Could pro sight vitamins be causing my eye irritations since I start taking it I've had on going infections and watery eyes?

Unrelated: In winter it's less humid and our tears tend to dry out more quickly. Adequate tears are necessary to lubricate the top layer of the cornea, the clear dome over the fron of your eye and the conjunctiva, the "skin" over your eye ball. When they are insufficient, small defects can occur in the top layer, exposung nerves underneath- and this causes discomfort, sandy or gritty feeling and pain. ...Read more
