Hi, I'm 23 and have been battling with doctors because no one can seem to give me straight forward answers, if any at all. I've always noticed the yellow spots or lines in my eyes for as long as I can remember, but it's never bothered me because no one else has ever noticed it. This past January while in a very heated argument, my fiancé immediately stopped me mid sentence to make me go look in the mirror, the whole whites of my eyes had glazed over yellow basically. Unfortunately, I did not get any pictures and I pretty much just passed it off like it was nothing really. Well February I went out with some freads drinking and stayed the night and woke up the next morning feeling fine after about 7 beers and maybe a drink or two oddly enough. As the morning progressed I started feeling worst and worst. Couldn't eat breakfast I I was so sick. One of my friends who is a nurse noticed my eyes had glazed over yellow after a night out instructed me to see a doctor. At this point I felt like crap, my eyes were yellow, and my abdomen hurt. I waited until about 4 that afternoon to actually go to the doctor and by then most all of the yellow had cleared up leaving just the normal everyday yellow spots I see. Well the doctor claims to not have been able to see the yellow, but ordered labs anyways. My creatinine level came back elevated which pertains to the kidneys, but has denied me any further answers besides drink more water. (Mind you I drink 96oz of water daily) My water intake should not be the issue. I decided to get a second opinion and again my levels came back elevated, but instead I was told to lower my fluid intake. At this point I'm so confused and still have no idea why my eyes are yellow! I decided to call one more doctor and asked if they ran tests would it take long to get results back, he instructed me not to wait, if my eyes are yellow go to the hospital. So for the third time, I had labs done and everything came back normal and still no answers!! But two of the three doctors have told me to get my eyes checked and that they don't see the yellow. I guess my questions. for you all are, Can you see the yellow or am I crazy? Why would I be told to have my eyes checked? And why can't anyone give me answers?
