Hey guys, I can barely see right now
There's this freaking thing on the left side of my vision
on the leftmost top side of my vision.
I can barely see the screen right now
It's just flashing lights for some sort
and not small spots but one long thing I can barely see
I got really nervous and went to the men's room to look in the mirror
and there's these 3 white bumps on the skin near the lashline
I don't know if lashline is the correct word
but like back of the skin where the bottom lashes are
Is something wrong with me?

The common symptoms of styes are-
* Redness on the eyes
* slight pain and tenderness on the eyes

* Sensitivity to light
* Eye may feel gritty

Use that great universal health care you guys have and go to the doctor. Thats not a jab at you. Go to the doctor.
I like alot of you guys, but you will be the last to hear about any health problems I may have. I go blind and you won't know about it for a week.

I was a member before I was a mod jd, and I still am. In this thread I've chosen to act as a member and now I have an ethical obligation not to exercise my office here. As a member I'm telling you that your posts are in poor taste and are derailing the thread, and I will bring them to the attention of the staff if they continue in a similar pattern.
Now perhaps we should get back to the subject of this thread, however controversial the facts may be, just like we do in most ATS threads.

Come on people. Migraines do not cause white bumps to appear on your eyelids. It could be a stye, some kind of skin blockage, ingrown hairs or just the result of some debris getting into your eyes.
If it doesn't get better in a day go to the eye doctor. Not even sure that you can use medicaire for eye problems like this. I imagine you can get in and out of an eye doctor forless than $100 and they probably have drops they can give rather than getting a prescription. Most eye doctors will work with for the cost. Tell them you only have $60 and they will probably still treat you for that amount. I find eye doctors are usually good people.
