Hello everyone, I was diagnosed with lupus about 8 years ago and moved a couple of years ago where I now attend a GP surgery which is really down to the luck of the draw - ie if I see one Dr he thinks I'm a hypochondriac and if I see the other she really tries to help - even calling the MIN hospital to get advice - outcome of which is my advice to to make sure to are being seen by some one who gives a da_ _. Anyway thats not the reason to send this - periodically I have awful eye problems, they are really dry and painful and can last from a couple of days to a week - as per this episode. I am prescribed all the normal eye drops and take Omega 7 which was recommended to me by a fellow sufferer (I am also on the normal stuff such as Plenquinil and Methatraxate. Does anyone have any other tips to help please. After this last episode I look like I have aged by 10 years - clearly not the crux of the problem but have felt awful for the week, to end up looking haggard is just adding insult to injury. Fellow Lupus friends - can anyone give me any help with this one?
