My problem is light sensitivity. When I look at the computer screen or bright sunlight, it feel like a needle shoots through my left eye all the way to the back of my head. Hydrocodone is the only medication that touches it and today it isn't working. I have seen a neurologist and he did an MRI and cat scan and everything was normal. I had trauma to my eyes last summer and an opthomologist treated me for iritis, abrated corneas and dry eyes. He put a tear plug in each eye and says my eyes are now healthy. He gave me light sensitivity drops to use but I still suffer from this problem. The headaches are immediate and send me flat on my back with nausea. I am a single mom with three children who hasn't been able to work since August as my work requires computers. Do you have any suggestions? I have had my hormone level checked and been tested for shogrens. Everything came back normal.

I'm surprised your eye doc didn't recommend it. I have these glasses and they really help.Also, considering you have headaches, eye pain, and nausea, I'd look into Glaucoma. Those are symptoms of Glaucoma too.
