Eyes hurt when moving
7 Replies
koopie33 - May 17

Does anyone have sore eyeballs when moved, came on with the tension headache about 3 weeks ago, I was wondering if they are related?

I get what I describe as a headache in my eyes" The are painful to move and sore when I blink. I wear contacts, so I have attributed this to my contacts bothering me, even though it doesn't clear up right away when I remove them. My eye-aches do seem to respond to tylenol. I never thought if they could be related to fibromyalgia, but it seems like so many seemingly unrelated aches are all a part of it.

My eyes hurt too. I was thinking maybe it was allergies.

Had my eyes checked because of the eye pain. Everything was ok but I am getting new glasses anyway. Tired of the old frames. I see my neurologist in July... need to tell her about this eye pain. It is mostly in my right eye but comes and goes. When I do get it, pain relievers don't work. Are your eyes any better koopie33???? Take care all.

My eyes get dry. Sometimes i wake up at night and have to put lubricating drops in them. that usually eases it for awhile

My eyes are the opposite. They water excessively. Sometimes my kids will ask me if I am crying when I am perfectly fine and happy.

Hi koopie33, I have the same problem somewhat. My eyes do hurt like a nagging pressure I guess is the best way to describe it. Sometimes I get a very painful shooting pain in my head and ends in one eye or the other that only last a few seconds, but it feels like my head will explode. Then after a little while the blood vessels in my eye pop or something and my eye turns red, like a big ol blood blister that last for aroumd a week or so. It really freaks the little kids out. I haven't been to a Dr. for this yet as I can't afford it. No insurance. It is of great concern though and it scares me alot when it does happen. I had a head injury that affected my eye nerves and whatever else is in there when I was 14, I am 51 now and they told me then that it would affect me more as I get older. It was called papilodema , I am not sure about the spelling. I got it because when I fractured my skull my brain swelled and put a lot of pressure on my eyes and damaged something I guess. Anyway do get it checked out if you can.It can't hurt !..........Blessings,Colleen

wow, it just tears me up when people can't get medical help they need because they don't have health insurance and can't afford it. That is just wrong.
