Causes Of Eye Pressure?
When I use prostration, bowing, bending, it hurts like I want to come out. What do the doctors think about my eye pain? Please answer.
Hi Fyan, thanks for the question.
First let me ask if this pain occurs in both eyes? Is the pain accompanied by a headache or is it heavy in the forehead and cheeks?
Both questions aim to distinguish whether the pain you are experiencing is caused by a medical condition in the eye or a disorder from other organs. Pain in the eye area can be caused by problems with the eye itself or other medical conditions (and it can be difficult to tell the difference if not done directly). There are several possible causes of eye pain in you, namely:
Sinusitis, or inflammation of the walls of the cavities around the nose. Pain is not only felt in the eye area, but can also be felt on the cheek or forehead. This pain worsens when brought down to prostration or bending over
Cluster headache, severe pain, on one side of the head, and felt in the eye, above the eye, to the side of the head, may be accompanied by redness of the eyes, tearing, nasal congestion, sweating on the forehead and face
Glaucoma, where there is an increase in eye pressure. In addition to feeling pain in the eyes, generally accompanied by decreased vision (sharp vision), red eyes, swollen eyes, etc.
Migraine headache, recurrent and throbbing pain on one side of the head, may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light/sound (photophobia and phonophobia), and changes in appetite and mood
Conjunctivitis, or inflammation of the lining of the eye
Keratitis, or inflammation of the cornea of the eye (the rainbow membrane of the eye)
Tumors in the brain pressing both eyeballs, and others
Because of the many possible underlying causes, Fyan should see a doctor. The doctor will help analyze the possible cause of your complaint with questions and answers, physical examination, and investigations (blood tests, ophthalmoscopy, tonometry, CT Scan) if needed. The doctor will then provide appropriate therapy according to the cause. Some tips that can be done in the meantime:
Get enough rest and reduce strenuous activities
Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water per day
Eat nutritious foods
Warm compresses can be applied to the area around the eyes and pain relievers, such as paracetamol, can be taken for a while
So, hopefully useful.
