Chemosis?...don't feel bad. It took me a month to figure out a name for it. Edema in my eye! I got a fluid bad! Can be caused by dry eye! My routine eye doctor did not know what to do. I am seeing an ophthalmologist in Knoxville at UT now (The 3rd eye doctor). I am a nurse of 33 years and have seen alot of stuff but this has me stumped. I have battled to keep my teeth with multiple root canals etc when I always had perfect teeth before. Back to the eye...Infection was ruled out right off. I was treated with antihistamines, steroids and a splash of antibiotics just in case. My ophthalmologist is saying when I return Feb 2nd we will consider resection of the conjunctiva. It is sad to say I am excited. I feel like my body is always doing something weird. Problems with mouth ulcers which are quite painful. I have joint pain terrible. My feet and hands prompted me to see rheumatologist appox 2 years ago. I just could not tolerate the medicine. Plaquenil made me have super -sonic hearing (hyperacusis) and Arava made my hair fall out at a high rate of speed. I have prednisone that I dose as needed but holding off due to upcoming shoulder surgery. Thank you for listening to me rant. I have enjoyed reading others post's. Makes me feel not so all alone and that I am not crazy.
