I recently had a seizure...I have been having severe headaches, left eye twitching. Also like a cloudiness in my head..Also tenderness in some parts o?

See an MD: Are you diagnosed with seizure disorder? It's normal to feel groggy and 'out of it' for a while after a seizure, but severe headaches don't necessarily go with seizures and would need to be worked up by an md. See an md, because some seizure disorders are life-threatening if not controlled. A neurologist would be best suited for this. ...Read more

Symptoms over the past few weeks. 2 infected styes on left eye, a sore on my lower lip (lip has swelling), bad head fog. HPV related?

Exam : Lower eyelid sores with a lip sore makes me think of herpes simplex disease, and an exam is definitely warranted right away. This combination would not be consistent with HPV. See an ophthalmologist for an exam. ...Read more

My left eye has been tender the last couple of days. Redness underneath my eyelids?

Hordeolum: Warm compresses (wash cloth with hot water and hold it on the stye for 5-10 minutes, reheating as needed), or surgical incision and drainage, or steroid have been the only effective treatments demonstrated get rid of a stye. A stye is due to the orifice of an oil gland (mebomian gland) in the eyelid margin becoming inflamed, and not an infection, so antibiotics are not indicated. ...Read more

I have a small red rash like spot on the upper lift of my left eye. It's tender and isn't going away?

See an eye doctor: This can represent an allergy, an infection or an inflammatory process. If the spot is on the eyelid it needs to be treated differently than if it is on the eye itself. In either case, you should have an eye doctor evaluate it so that the appropriate treatment can be started. ...Read more

Temporal arteritis?: A painful inflammation of the temporal artery (in the temple) can indicate giant cell arteritis (GCA), an inflammation of the arterial walls. The danger lies in the possible development of a central retinal artery occlusion or arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy, which are vision threatening. A prompt diagnosis by a neuro-ophthalmologist can prevent permanent vision loss, and should be done ASAP! ...Read more

The area under my left eye is red, swollen and tender to touch. I do not believe it is a sty or pink eye - what could this be?

The area under my left eye is red, swollen and tender to touch. I do not believe it is a sty or pink eye - what could this be?

Inflamed skin: If skin is red, swollen and tender to touch it is inflamed. The most concerning cause of inflammation is infection, so keep an eye out. Chronic irritation from rubbing or watering eyes can do it. Bug bites can do it. Sometimes allergies can do it, although these usually itch more than hurt until they get infected. You might also be in the early stage of a stye. Keep an eye out for a bump on eyelid. ...Read more

Floaters, blurred vision, headaches and tenderness in temple around left eye - blind in right eye from birth. Eye tests ok - any ideas as to causes?

Floaters, blurred vision, headaches and tenderness in temple around left eye - blind in right eye from birth. Eye tests ok - any ideas as to causes?

Check sed rate: You are a bit young for this but I'd check an ESR ( sedimentation rate). If elevated consider temporal arteritis. Typically the temporal artery is nodular and tender. The diagnosis is confirmed with a biopsy of a small slice of the artery. One can see scalp tenderness with migraine but it does not typically present in the 5 the decade. See a doctor right away if you think it may be TA ...Read more

Sub conj heme: Possibly sub conjunctival hemorrhage.

My eye is sore and its inside the corner of my left eye? Not sure why... I woke up with it

My eye is sore and its inside the corner of my left eye? Not sure why... I woke up with it

A few possibilities: A common reason for a focal area of soreness on the eyelid is acne-like clogging of glands on the lid, causing a stye or chalazion. You could also have a noncontagious allergic reaction to something that got on your skin (dermatis) or eye (conjunctivitis). If the swelling is on the inner part of your lower lid between your lid and your nose, you may have a more serious infection (dacryocystitis). ...Read more
