Negotiate: The question of medical cost is buried in mystery. Most enter an office and have no idea what the charge will be and since insurance covers much of it, there is little information understood by the patient. Most doctors will negotiate with a patient willing to pay in cash. It sounds like you need an evaluation and you are wise to choose an ophthalmologist. Enter with $$ and discuss a price. ...Read more

I tested negative for gonorrhea and I'm having a sore throat every morning and eye pain in both. Is it possible it can be in my throat & eyes?

Gonorrhea can live..: ....anywhere it contacts. If partner is or was positive for infection when you had relations & if exposure to semen was mouth or eye then, it's possible to have been infected in those areas. I'm skeptical with the symptoms you pose & time since exposure should be considered. Still, gonococcal pharyngitis happens. Not hard to verify. More questions? Write me @: www. Healthtap.

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

33 yr old F, left temporal severe pain, L eye pain, double vision, nausea, face pain, scalp tender to touch only direct pressure helps. Thoughts?

Headache + eye pain: I am concerned with your symptoms of unilateral headache, visual changes, and scalp tenderness. At 33 y of age, not likely to be a vascular disease. Diagnoses to consider include orbital infection (cellulitis), optic neuritis (inflammation of the optic N.); disorders of the facial nerve (5th nerve, trigeminal neuralgia). Middle ear infection could also be considered. Migraines & headache dz's too. ...Read more
