For the past month I have been experiencing a very strange thing: My eyes have been feeling cold! It almost feels as if i have been outside in the cold, or like somthing cold is blowing in my eye. I feel this almost all the time. Often the coldness is accompanied by a feeling of puffyness yet I look at my eye and it looks completely normal.
It gets even weirder: I never experience coldness in my left or right eye at the same time. This cold sensation is either in my left eye, or my right. I can't seem to find any pattern to this, but every other day or so, my symptoms will go away for maybe half an hour, and then it comes back again... but in the opposite eye. I know it is not because it is actually cold, as I can be sitting in a warm car or in a shower or just in my house where it is warm, and my eye will still feel cold. When I am outside in the cold (it is winter where I live) I do not notice it as much.
A little about myself:
I am an 18 year old working student
I have glasses, as I have terrible vision
I have never had any health problems, besides chronic nosebleeds (which have become more under control these days)
I was born premature by almost two months
SUMMARY (if you dont want to read it all)
I am experiencing a cold feeling in my eyes, however never both eyes get this feeling at the same time.
My doctor told me it was just my way of interpreting tired eyes, however even when I sleep well and feel rested, within about 20 minutes of waking I start to get this cold sensation again.
If anyone knows what this could be, please help me! I am looking for cures, therapies, ways to cope, and at the very least, similair stories.
