I have Fibromyalgia and my eyes have become very dry, irritated and sensitive to bright lights. I am also having problems with vision fluctuations. I am having a problem with the skin on my face and my eyes and mouth feeling like I have been in fiberglass insulation. It is making me crazy, my eye doctor gave me a gooey lubricant to put in my eyes at night, but I didn't notice any change. I use a lot of artificial tears all day but it doesn't help either. I think I may have chemical sensitivity's too, although not diagnosed. Has anyone found relief for these problems either with prescriptions or home remedies? I would appreciate any help!

I have problems with dry eyes too. I always have to have eye drops handy.

I have dry eye's also, I have a tiny sore on one eye lid that keeps coming back. It is itchy and I have to keep putting ointment on it.

Moist washcloth on eyes every now and then helps. Also try to increase moisture in the air with humidifier.

KarenV,
Another suggestion concerning your skin is that you maybe allergic to a medication you are taking. You might want to talk to your family doctor or see a skin specialist just to be on the safe side. Chemical burns are possible from medication. I suffer from dry eyes and use eye drops for that condition. I am glad your seeing your eye doctor as sometimes we can have other eye conditions that have nothing to do with having fibro. Good luck! :)
