Thanks for posting to me. I have been dealing with this for about 8 weeks. I've been on penicillin, doxycycline, cephalexin and clindamycin. Nothing helped. I've had a pred pack and that did help, though it came back afterwards. |
It's not painful but very uncomfortable, my eye feels pulled and strained from the pressure. and sometimes it goes into my forehead and gets nu7mb too, from the pressure or whatever.
I had an abcessed tooth pulled last week, hoping it was that (that tooth was a problem for a very long time, but didn't hurt...root canal that went bad from years ago). That's out and a week later, still swollen eye.
But...weirdly after I was on Advil for the day and a half afterewards, it felt really good as far as swelling and pressure....though the swelling was still visible, just didn't FEEL bad.
So today, I took an Advil again cause it was kinda bad feeling and we were going to try to go to the Renaissance Faire here (been so long since I did anything actually fun...even going out to eat is not fun). And hey, the Advil helped. It still was a little pressure, but liveable and I was able to go and watch things. I do need sunglasses, and I need a brim cap (baseball cap) cause brightness/sun bothers me.
Strange, not long ago, I was fine...and suddenly this. The Orbital Plastisurgeon is going to call me on Monday (well his office is), to answer any questions so I can think things through and make an appointment. I dread Monday. I hate going...you know me and docs/vets. But I may have no choice. Yes, please send prayers, I'm very scared.
