Can severe allergy cause eye and nasal pain and feeling of nystagmus?

Can severe allergy cause eye and nasal pain and feeling of nystagmus?

Feeling of nystagmus: I think so, yes, but nystagmus is not felt, it is seen. It is important which direction it is. It will be hard for you to see, but a bystander should see it, and a video of your eyes looking forward and in four directions would help someone who cannot see you face to face.

Good luck! ...Read more

Been 2 two different eye docs. Both says allergies but red lines on eyes since July. Eye pain behind eyelid comes and goes. Now seeing eyelashes. Why?

Blepharitis?: Inflammation of inner lining of eyelids can cause irritation of the eyeball, leading to redness. It can also cause the eyelashes to be redirected toward the eye so that they enter the field of vision. Your symptoms are suggestive of blepharitis. You should ask about this. Make sure you see an ophthalmologist (someone who treats eye disease), not just an optometrist (who just prescribes lenses). ...Read more

What can people with high eye pressure, glaucoma take for seasonal allergies?

What can people with high eye pressure, glaucoma take for seasonal allergies?

Depends: If your glaucoma is an open angle type of glaucoma, then you can be free to use any medication. However if you have narrow angles, this may be contraindicated. It is best to ask your doctor which kind you have, and if it is narrow, ask if it is okay for you. Sometimes when narrow angle patients have been adequately treated, they can be able to use these meds. Hope this helps! ...Read more

My 51/2 yr old says her rt eye hurts its a little red says hurts to blink gave her allergy meds eye drops and ibprophen please help?

Poss foreign body: Hurting to blink suggests a speck of dust is under the upper eyelid. If you can gently pull the upper lid from the globe, and irrigate with eyewash or saline, you might dislodge the offending particle. If copious irrigation is unsuccessful, an ophthalmologist should be able to assess the situation with anesthetic drops. Antibiotic drops are a better choice than the allergy drops; Ibuprofen is okay. ...Read more

Pulsing head + dizzy/lightheaded when lie down. Ears clogged, pressure in eyes/face, nasal voice often. Allergies. Cervical issues. What specialist?

Doctor for allergies: Allergists treat the allergies and the ear- blocking and headaches that come with them. They don't do neck adjustments in the USA. I would start with an allergist and if they do not help you, consider seeing an otolaryngologist for structural causes of the nose and ears giving you these symptoms. For the neck, you may need a different doctor entirely, depends on what symptoms you have. ...Read more

Allergies also may cause someone to rub their eyes more which, in turn, can lead to a hemorrhage. ...Read more
