I am so glad I found this site. Now I don't feel like I am the only one who feels this way. I have had episcleritis on and off for over 3 months now. Started in my right eye and just recently I have it in my left. I work in healthcare and everyone asks me if I have pink eye or another infection. I have been to my eye doctor 3 times and seen my primary care physician also. I have had tons of lab work done and the only thing that came back was a barely positive ANA test. I am going to see a rheumatologist next week, but it sounds like I won't get any helpful information. Has anyone tried diclofenac in the eye drop form? I haven't tried it but it's an NSAID so it doesn't have the steroids in it. All I know is I need to find something that works. Although this is a minor condition compared to some, I hate the way it makes me feel. I can never wear my contacts anymore either. Hopefully the appointment next week will provide me with some insight. Thanks for reading.... it almost feels like I now have a little support group:)
