7 months ago i got heating fuel in my eye. Since then specialists have told me I have a maculopathy in right eye how can this happen from heating fuel?

Probably not related: I have found that petroleum products are not severely toxic to the eye. Any damage would be superficial, and there should be no retinal or optic nerve damage. There may be a maculopathy, but probably not from the fuel. ...Read more

Scleral damage: It depends on how much damage your eye has sustained. If you have an eye injury, make an appointment to see your local ophthalmologist as soon as possible. If the injury is very recent, go to the emergency room. ...Read more

I feel tightness at times in occipital area. When I rise frm bed my head feels heating also pain in eyes,doctor prescribed antidepressant.Will it work?

No "crystal ball": Can't say whether it "will" work. Depends on the mechanism of your symptoms. Pain in both eyes or one? (Makes a difference.) Determine distribution of "heating". If localized to one part of your head this could be a dysesthesia in which case the involved nerve could help explain the other symptoms (and antidepressants may not work). See doctor with details. ...Read more

Every time I stand up my vision blurs and gets dark, I feel weak everywhere and my head starts heating up, I get very dizzy as well, why is this?

Every time I stand up my vision blurs and gets dark, I feel weak everywhere and my head starts heating up,  I get very dizzy as well, why is this?

Orthostasis: Feeling faint when getting up or standing from a seated position is usually related to orthostatic hypotension. The postural reflexes (baroreceptors) that cause the heart to pump blood to the brain are slowed and there is insufficient blood pressure. It is caused by blood pooling in the lower extremities. Dehydration, bedrest, low B12 levels, anemia, and medications may be playing a role. ...Read more

Neck pain: Tension migraines are headaches that come from tense muscles of the neck that insert on the back of the head. The headaches are usually from compensatory muscle spasm due to abnormal alignment of the cervical spine. Massage, physical therapy, and chiropractic care are helpful to relieve the neck pain and headaches. ...Read more

Uncertain ? Diagnosi: Need to know the diagnosis. We see this kind of problem in a lot of situations that you need a better diagnosis to clarify your therapy. It depends on examination the range of motion of your neck and even the muscle tone in myofascial tender points. You may well need imaging, x-rays and even injections. ...Read more

My granddaughter is having really terrible neck pain, she can't move her head? I have a heating pad on her and have given her Advil (ibuprofen)

Cervical neck pain: Anti-inflammatories, heat/ice, and physical therapy are good first line treatments for myo-fascial/facet/discogenic mediated neck pain. I would touch base with her pcp and get some x rays. I assume she isn't running fevers or had any recent trauma or symptoms of paralysis? ...Read more

Will keflex and a decongestant take care of ear pain/pressure? Will a heating pad also help to ear. Started with chest cold a week ago. Moved to my head. Have also had a fever for 1 week. Sudden onset of pressure/pain in left ear yesterday. Some yellowish

Will keflex and a decongestant take care of ear pain/pressure? Will a heating pad also help to ear. Started with chest cold a week ago. Moved to my head. Have also had a fever for 1 week. Sudden onset of pressure/pain in left ear yesterday. Some yellowish

Unless : Unless the ear pain and pressure are secondary to a bacterial infection, antibiotic therapy is unlikely to be helpful. We often prescribe antibiotics for persistent complaints beyond a week that may have been initiated by a viral prodrome to prevent secondary superinfection. Keflex, in general, would not be considered the drug of choice for community acquired otitis media. An oral decongestant can assist in relief of nasal, sinus, and mucosal congestive changes leading to eustachian tube dysfunction resulting in ear pain and pressure. Topical afrin is more effective as a decongestant as it works more directly at the target site as long as you respect the 3-5 day maximal useage recommendations to avoid rebound congestion (rhinitis medicamentosa). A heating pad for inflammatory conditions may actually worsen the pain by increasing the firing rate of the nerves carrying the pain impulses.If you continue with ear drainage of the type you are referring i would have the ear examined to rule out sponataneous perforation of the eardrum. ...Read more

My eyes are really red, and there is heat from them that steamed up my glasses?

My eyes are really red, and there is heat from them that steamed up my glasses?

Difficult to say: Your symptoms are difficult to ascertain. I recommend you have an eye exam. Redness is a common denominator for many eye problems. Heat emanating from the eyes is not specifically a problem, but a reaction to what you are experiencing. An example would be the flu, which can make you febrile and also give you conjunctivitis (red eyes). ...Read more

Can an infrared heat lamp damage my eyes when i am using it on my face to treat my cold?

Yes: Infrared heat lamps use low amouts of energy and heat up quickly. Your delicate eyes are very suceptible to high intensity short wave infrared radiation and long exposure can damage your eyes. Unless you have special goggles I would advise you not to use it. Try a warm compress instead. ...Read more

If i am using an infrared heat lamp on my face to treat my cold, can it damage my eyes when they are closed?

Amazed: I continue to be amazed at the unending array of useless therapies for the common cold. If you like the way this feels, go ahead. Not too close, you can get burned. Wear goggles or at least keep your eyes closed. While not the serious hazard of UV lamps, there could be eye damage especially with prolonged exposure or close use. ...Read more

I have been getting a burning sensation in my eyes, like a heat wave and then i feel nauseated. What can cause this?

Surface problems: Burning in the eyes usually is due to dry eyes or a lid condition known as blepharitis. It is safe to try warm compresses over the eyes when it burns and use of artificial tears sold over the counter. If it persists, an eye doctor may prescribe prescription strength medications, so see an ophthalmolgist if the above doesn't work. ...Read more
