What Is This Exactly?

Hi, I've been having a lot of eye pain with my left eye and ever since childhood I had crossed eyes and muscle problem and I had surgery few times in my life to have it corrected. Recently I have been so much eye pain with my left eye and generally I rub my eyes a lot especially in my sleep. Sometimes my eyes get reddish pink though. I realized something which is I actually have scoliosis and I'm in treatment and for back pain I take naproxen and the time I was having such eye pain and back pain I took naproxen few hours later I felt so much better from my eye pain. Does it mean something is wrong with the muscle of my eye since naproxen helped me? I'm going to see my doctor for this soon and I'm very curious about this.

The other thing I'm wondering about which is I was looking at the meaning of conjunctiva and I realized I have many of the symptoms of it I want to know is this something bad? How do you think my doctor will treat such thing? What do you think is good that I can do for pain while I'm waiting to see my doctor? Please let me know about this soon.

Thank You,

Thanks for your reply. I'm going to see my eye doctor soon and see what's going on. If it is conjunctiva does it get cured? Please let me know.

Dear Melissa,

In order to determine whether or not your eye pain can be coming from nerve or muscle damage you will have to be examined by your doctor.

The conjunctiva is a thin membrane that covers the inner surface of the eyelid and the white part of the eyeball (the sclera). Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of this membrane. Here is some more information on conjunctivitis: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/conjunctivitis-0

Good luck,
