My right eye has been experiencing pain and discomfort the past few days. I have a slight astigmatism in my left eye and I wear glasses. I have not taken them off at all. The pain I feel radiates at the top of the socket. I do not feel any gritty feeling and I have used eyedrops to try and alleviate some of the discomfort. It is sharp and sudden and comes and goes. The discomfort I feel is at the top where the socket is and at the bottom of my eye. My sinuses were a major concern but it seems that even with my sinuses clearthe pain stays. I have not had any injury or medication that has the sideeffects concerning the eye. I have covered one eye to see if there were vision problems but there were none. My pupils are the same size and I see no halos around lights. I can sometimes feel it when I move my eyes. I open my eyes wide sometimes and it hurts. The pain is around 6/10. This has gone on for 4 days so far and i cannot see a doctor about it any time soon. I have noticed some discharge in the morning that is more than usual and no redness whatsoever. I have tried not watching tv, reading, phone, or computer but nothing seems to help. I wonder what it could be so it would be lovely to know what other people think it could be. I have had no runny nose either so i dont know if sinuses can inflame without congestion. I have had no tension headaches. I have had a bit of temporal pain randomly. I suffer from: TMJ Chronic headachesView Thread
