Not been on here for a while, as have been feeling quite good. However, i keep having problems with my eyes. This has only happened since i was diagnosed with RA just on 4 years ago. sometimes i can go 2 - 3 months without any eye problems and then all of a sudden bang! I wake up with swollen, bloodshot sticky and weeping eyes. its almost as if there is a thick film across my eyeball. My eyelid swells on top and bottom so i look like the elephant man at times. i have been to the GP at least 4 times and spoke to my Rheumy about it but cant get a diagnosis. They just give me antibiotic drops or cream which does help but i want to know what it is and no one seems to be able to help. It can take a while before i get it under control so its a nightmare of a morning trying to bathe them and getting the swelling to go down.
Anyway i keep thinking it is Sjorgrens but can't get diagnosis. does anyone else suffer this with RA or is it my imagination and just an allergy..
Could do with some advice so i don't think i am a hypochondriac.....
