I had a slightly sore eye (one eye) about a week ago, for no known reason
and i thought ***n maybe i'm getting a stye (i've had them before)
Everyday it go slightly sorer and i decided i shouldnt rub it, then i went for a walk and i think i mayhave got something in it (it was dark and sudden) it made it more sore and i went crazy trying to rub and get it out (possible bark, leaf, blown material, maybe an insect of bug??!) and thinking it was possible a bug freaked out slightly.

It felt better so i forgot about it and the next day i woke up and had a puffyish eye (not too bad). It looked kinda gross and just a bit smallish my eye (not many people could notice). The next morning it was quite big, my eyelid was puffy (looked like it had fluid in it) and pushed my eye closed slightly, it feels heavy and tiny bit itchy and sticky a bit (slightly red). It is sore to touch and that soreness isn't really in just one area i think its sort of all over really.

It gets worse in the mornings and the fluid goes away in the day slightly. BEen to the doctors who don''t really know and think it could be an allergy of some sort.. but very vague...had it for a few days not getting any better with eye cream and anti-histamine

What do you think? anyone had this?
