Ingrown Eyelashes Accompanied By Headaches?
afternoon … two days ago I felt dizzy and uncomfortable in the eye area of the left eyelid. I checked with the eye doctor, because the eyelids were clean, but there was hair growing on the bottom of the eye and causing irritation. I was given eye drops and ointment for irritation. Then I woke up with a terrible headache. I use eye drops and ointment. the pain doesn’t go away. after using eye drops, I feel my tongue is sticky. like numbness. to get rid of headaches I ended up taking extra panadol. today I don’t use eye drops, but my mouth still feels numb and numb. why is this? Do I have to get an MRI check? I’m afraid because I often get dizzy lately. if you want to check into a hospital, what doctor should you go? thank you in advance

Ingrown eyelashes are called trichiasis. This condition can indeed trigger eye irritation which makes the eyes feel painful, itchy, sore, runny, reddish, easily glare, and disturbed when seeing. Uncomfortable sensation in the eyes due to trichiasis can also spread to almost the entire head. Trichiasis is not yet clear the exact cause, but is thought to be related to eye infections, eyelid inflammation, autoimmune disorders, or injuries. If this condition really triggers your complaint, definitive treatment should be done with actions to remove the eyelashes that are the focus of the problem, or improve the direction of its growth. This effort can be done with a variety of actions, for example ablation, electrolysis, or frozen surgery. In addition to the above actions, several types of eye drops or ointments can also be given to your doctor to make you feel more comfortable.
However, if the treatment that the doctor gives you still has not been successful in alleviating your complaints, or even causes your head to feel dizzy and have severe pain and the tongue feels tight, then it is necessary to re-evaluate other possible causes, for example other eye disorders (such as glaucoma, asthenopia , refractive eye disorders), migraines, cluster headaches, trigeminal neuralgia, brain tumors, metabolic disorders, psychological disorders, and so on. Get yourself checked by a doctor, ophthalmologist, or neurologist so that the doctor can do a more comprehensive physical examination, or may also be assisted by investigations such as laboratories, x-rays, slit lamps, ophthalmoscopy, CT scans, MRI, and so on. Depending on the cause, your condition can later be treated with a different therapeutic approach.
In the meantime, we recommend that you ease your complaint first with the following steps:
Take paracetamol so that the pain in your head and eyes improves
Compress the side of the eye that is not comfortable with warm water
Avoid holding eyes with dirty hands
Rest more, including by not excessive looking at gadgets
Eat a variety of nutritious foods, rich in vitamins B1, B6, and B12
Don't smoke or consume alcohol
Do not carelessly take other drugs without first seeing a doctor
Hope this helps ...
