(19 y/o, normal weight Male)
For the past 15 days I've had constant noticeable red veins to the left/right/below both of my eyes. When it started you could barely notice them unless I moved my eye around to get a good view of one side of it. But now they're "branching out" closer to the center of my eye and becoming larger/more noticeable. There's no pain, no dryness/itching/swelling and I'm not having any vision problems except for some bluriness when waking up. But at no point during the day are they ever less bloodshot/smaller and eye drops don't have an effect.

I'm sort of confused if I have a problem or not I've never had bloodshot eyes before that I've noticed or that I can remember. My general doctor said that they're probably just from fatigue, but I've been sleeping for 8-10 hours every day for as long as I can remember.

I'm currently getting over a bout of food poisoning/gastroenteritis that effected me for the past 3 weeks. And I'm not sure if my two problems are related since I've been eating/sleeping pretty well, but I still feel fatigued occasionally and I'm wondering if that can cause your eyes to remain bloodshot 24/7 even if you're sleeping well.
