In early January, I started to have pain in my left eye. I have bad allergies, and I had been rubbing my eye. I went to the eye Dr and it turns out I had scratched my eye, so the Dr gave me eye drops to help clear it up. Since I was unable to wear contacts at the time, I was wearing my glasses, and since they were old, I couldn't see very well out of them. So I decided it was time to get my new contacts and glasses. I went to a different Dr for my exam, and ordered the new glasses/contacts. Just after that I got very sick and was hospitalized with pneumonia. I was bedridden for weeks with the pneumonia, but I am slowly getting better, I guess. But my eye problem just kept getting worse. I was not able to see clearly out of my left eye, so I assumed I just needed new contacts. The Dr gave me contacts for an astigmatism, but they bothered my eye too much. When I finally got my new glasses, I could not see out of them AT ALL! Very blurry... So I went back to the eye Dr and when she checked my eyes, she said my left eye was VERY inflamed. She said it was like seeing through wax paper. It was terrible, because I work on a computer at my job, and only being able to see out of one eye was causing headaches and pain. She gave me steroid drops. She said the problem could have been caused by my pneumonia....it was like an immune response. Since my body was busy fighting off the virus, it was causing a lot of inflammation, including my eye. So I went to see the Dr every week for 6 wks, while continuing to use the eye drops, and rotating between my glasses and contacts. (I hate wearing glasses, and I still cant see that well out of them...although I have had 2 drs tell me that my glasses are very close to my prescription and that I should not be having trouble seeing out of them..) Anyway, after 6 wks of going back and forth to the Dr, the left eye finally cleared up, and I am able to wear my contacts again. HOWEVER....the problem I had with my left eye has now moved to my right eye!!! I didn't realize it until the other night. DH & I were driving at night, and I told him that I noticed that all of the houses on that road had lighted bells hanging on their houses. I told him "look...they all have lighted bells in their yards and on their houses....I wonder if it means something? Maybe someone in the neighborhood is missing or something?" He was like "WHAT are you talking about??? Those are their house lights!" So I put my hand over my right eye and realized that the "bells" I was seeing were, in fact, their house lights. My blurred vision was making the lights look like bells. Same for the lights on the cars. I became really scared. I thought I might be losing my vision or something. So I went to the Dr the next day for my follow-up, and she said the rt eye was now severely inflamed, and the left eye was clear. She looked very puzzled by this, & couldn't really say why this is happening to me. Her only thought was that it is still because of the pneumonia. She did all kinds of other tests, and didn't find anything wrong, or any reason for the inflammation. I didn't mention that I have FM, but I am now thinking that this could be happening because of the FM? I don't know. I have to continue using the steroid drops, and I am hoping my eye clears up soon, so I can finally see again. This is so frustrating, and this has been a VERY difficult 2 months for me. Has anyone with FM ever experienced anything like this with their vision? I am terrified that this will never go away, and that I will never be able to wear contacts again.
