However, some significant problems can be related. Get ophthalmological evaluation. Depending on what is seen the doctor can refine the possibilities.

I have a stabbing, shooting pain that is on the right side of my neck that goes up to my eye and causes blurred vision.

Occipital neuralgia: The most common symptom is suboccipital pain radiating to the back of the head and occasionally down the back of the neck. Tenderness over the greater and lesser occipital nerves is common. During severe episodes, the pain may be felt in the retro-orbital and temporal areas.

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

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

I have headaches  eye pain with blurry vision neck and shoulders pain , and my scalp is very tender, any idea what's going on?

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). An eye exam can determine the cause for the eye pain, and if it might be related to the other symptoms. ...Read more

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. Here, Dr Dariush Saghafi is an expert and there are others - he's a gem. ...Read more
