Eye pain
An_245933 posted:
My husband is complaining of eye pain located at the back of his eye. It is also located up in his forehead. He is diabetic. The pain started about one week ago after having his yearly eye exam. D you have any suggestions as to what is going on? What recommendations do you suggest to alleviate the pain?
Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
It is very hard to know what it causing your husband's pain. The possibilities include trivial problems like eye strain as well as more serious issues like (early, pre-skin rash) shingles and sinusitis.

Before making suggestions on pain relief I believe you need a diagnosis and the ophthalmologist that did the yearly diabetic exam is probably the best place to start.
