Unclear: Depends whether the mentioned symptoms are part of a larger syndrome of other conditions you mentioned, or independent. Since you are young something simple like a sinus infection might explain. However, you mention quite a few symptoms for a young person; so, maybe the issues are more complex. ...Read more

You may want to see an oculofacial plastic surgeon to help with the recovery of the scar as well. ...Read more

Dry eyes: Your symptoms sound typical of some dry eyes. Try using some artificial tears several times a day for awhile to see if this helps. I notice that you're on thyroid placement therapy. Also make sure your doctor checks your thyroid levels if that has not been done for awhile. ...Read more
