Can People With Astigmatism Have Eye Pain?
Tonight doctor, I am 16 years old and I have astigmatism under 1, I feel different from my friends who have much more astigmatism than me, at first I experienced vertigo, extreme headache, and until I couldn’t walk … I don’t want vertigo anymore, but if the headache is felt every day, when I go to the hospital I was sentenced to a cylindrical gr2 with the doctor (I checked with the pediatrician eye) but I was also given some kind of pain medication and it was a strong medicine. I forget what the name is but the shape is small white, but after I wear glasses I don’t feel the difference in my headache, and my eyes are in extreme pain, so I become addicted to the painkillers because I am not strong, after I observe them I, they don’t experience things like that, why is that? I was also briefly recommended to a neurologist by a pediatrician, but to an ophthalmologist, he said (because I said if my eyes were missing that time) Thank you, sorry to get complicated
Good evening, thanks for the question
In astigmatism or astigmatism eye conditions generally do not cause complaints of spinning dizziness or vertigo. Complaints of throbbing headaches can accompany astigmatism that is not treated, for example after reading or other activities that involve intense vision.
Vertigo itself is a wrong perception of one's movements or the surrounding environment. Symptoms can be:
1. Vestibular vertigo is a feeling of spin that arises in vestibular disorders or the balance system in the inner ear. Vestibular vertigo causes a spinning sensation, episodic onset, provoked by head movements, can be accompanied by severe nausea or vomiting. For example, occur in cases. Benign Paroxismal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Meniere's Disease, vestibular neuritis, labyrinthine artery occlusion, labirhinitis, ototoxic drugs, autoimmune, VIII nerve tumors, microvascular compression, perilymph fistula.
2. Non-vestibular vertigo is a sense of shake, float, and float arising from disorders of the central nervous system in the brain. Can be caused by polyneuropathy, myelopathy, cervical arthrosis, neck trauma, presyncope, orthostatic hypotension, hyperventilation, tension headache, disease
If you are currently experiencing a complaint of vertigo that is quite clear then it is necessary to think of other causes above the underlying, so that further evaluation is needed with a neurologist.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam.
