    Eye pain/topamax/blepharitis??

    I was just wondering if blepharitis can cause pain? In the morning my left eye feels full of grit, if I lift the eye lid it makes an awful popping sound, Iv had no redness or flakes, I was thinking it could be posterior?

    Iv had eye pain for weeks now, mainly the left eye. It's at the top where my eyelid is, my mri and ophthalmology tests were normal. The ophthalmologist looked into my eye ball but did not examine the eye lid. I recently started topamax and the pain increased however I do not have a glaucoma.

    I have the pain every day but all exams are normal, it's very frustrating and quite upsetting. Eye drops such as tears seem to help.

    Any ideas what this could be? Thank you.

    Sounds like it might be dry eye. This is a possible side effect of Topamax and you should notify your doctor to determine if the medication should be discontinued. You can research this yourself so you can take the info to your doctor. Take care

    are you hypoT? Since this is posted in the thyroid board... dry eye is also a symptom from hypoT
