Also, can cause optic neuropathy. It can also lead to fluid build up in the choroid, needing surgery. Allergy presents with runny nose, reddening of conjunctiva and sclera, itching and watering of eyes, sneezing etc. ...Read more

Eyes were white before June. sinus. Eyes still red.Dialited blood vessels side of eyes and some at bottom.Could this be a blood clot?eye exam normal

Chances high not: blood clot, but perhaps irritated eyes! If you still have your sinusitis brewing that's not helping matters. So if your eye exam is normal, and they did a dilated exam too, you are in the clear. Your dilated blood vessels needs to be investigated if it's from contact lens overuse, dry eyes, or other causes. ...Read more

Are red spots in eyes a sign of high blood pressure?

Are red spots in eyes a sign of high blood pressure?

Not necessarily: Depending on the nature of the spots (are they blood spots or inflammation causing the blood vessels to be more apparent) it is less likely related to blood pressure. If the blood spots are in the retina in the back of the eye, however, there is a higher risk. See an eye doctor for a dilated examination, and have your blood pressure checked as well. ...Read more

Is blood pressures of high 90s/50-60s considered low if it's making me lightheaded & foggy and fatigued? My normal BP is 114/70s. I also have lupus.

It would not be: uncommon to have symptoms of light-headedness, dizziness and perhaps fatigue with systolic blood pressures in the 90's though many people tolerate this blood pressure satisfactorily. First, try to increase your fluid volume by drinking liquids, especially those with electrolytes including Gatorade. If you don't feel better and BP comes up, contact your Doc or go to ER/Urgent Care. Blood loss ? ...Read more

Poorly controlled eczema can cause elevated serum IgE levels. If you have other atopic conditions like allergic rhinitis this can also contribute.
