I am new here and wanted to ask for help. My problem is that for the last two months I have had red eyes and its not a virus or pink eye. I had an eye doctor look at my eyes and he said it may be something else and said I should see a regular doctor.
The problem is I do not have insurance so I am unable to see a regular doctor.
Anyway the past 5 months I have had a pain in the right side of my head behind my right ear going all the way down to my arm and into my hand.
The pain seems mostly in the right side of my neck. This isn't something I have experienced before. I am concerned it may be a systemic disorder but not had any weight loss. My appetite seems good but I have been sleeping alot more and seem tired alot more, I'm 45.
I weigh 140 and 5' 4" tall so I am close to the right weight for my age.
I also have bad joint pain in my right shoulder as well.

I am very nervous that this could be the onset of a disease of some kind.
At first I thought red eye could be a possible allergy reaction but it has not really gone away. I wake up every morning with red eyes, some mornings are worse.
Any help would be apreciated.

  • Ins or not, your best bet would be to get to the doc's to get the right tests and anwers. Sorry, but its the best advice I can give you!! You will need tests to find out what it is for sure. You really shouldn't mess around with what you are discribing ...Get it checked out. Good luck
