    I have had a little pain in one of my eyes yesterday and today.

    Today I noted that the eyelid above my eye is slightly swollen and pink. This is just above my eyelashes. Just a little strip of swolleness.

    I'm hesitant to go to a regular doctor because they usually make any kind of infection worse (due to the fact that my body seems to have different problems than normal people), and especially because I'm on an AV (Famvir).

    I'm going to call my CFS doctor later today and see what he thinks. Meanwhile, any ideas?

    I have tested positive and then negative at various points in my illness for CMV. That is related to some kind of eye problems (which is what Valcyte is used for in AIDS patients), but I still need to look up the symptoms.

    Thanks for any thoughts that people might have. (Please don't flip out on me though....)

    Best, Lisa
