    After 6 and 1/4 days of a fever, now this.....

    On Sunday Dec. 5th I woke with a fever, only feeling cold and achy.... On Monday I went to see a doc, temp was 103... This fever lasted until Saturday Dec. 11th, 100.9 at about 8am, then at about 1pm, 98.2.... The fever temps obviously varied, but didn't break the 101 barrier till Frinday the 10th...

    Fast forward to Mon. Dec. 13th, on my way home from work, at 1pm, about to go out the front foyer, which of course has tons of windows, I caught a glimpse of some bright light, NOT a direct contact with the sun... Ever since then the problem has grown steadily worse... Monday it was just sunlight, Tuesday floresencts, Wednesday Dec. 15th, while making my morning commute, wearing sun glasses, I lit a ciggerette, and the light from the flame hurt my eyes.... And now when I watch a lil tv, or look at the monitor and then change my Point of View, my eyes hurt. I rubbed an itch today, on the upper eyelid of my right eye, it hurt, it isn't tender, it is very sore.... Monday, the 13th I awoke with bloodshot eyes in the outer corners of my eyes, Tuesday, both eyes fully bloodshot, Wednesday the 15th, the corner of my eyes again... I do mean this, it is the stereotypical look of some crazy man when I say bloodshot.....

    Is this an after effect of the fever lasting so long, with my weakened, low energy body? Or should I get my butt to the Optomitrist?

    Thanx to all whom reply!
