Thinning retina in left eye. Please suggest remedies to prevent detachment of retina and maintain good eye health.

1. What exactly happens?

My eyes are always tired. I feel them to be very dry and have a heavy feeling all the time.

2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.

Sometimes pain around the left eye. More on the outside of the eye than inside. A heavy feeling and discomfort in the eyes all the time. Am always feeling tired.

I sometimes see increased floaters and have to continuously blink to clear my vision. Since the past two days my left eye has been hurting - on the bottom of the eye and my eye feels sore.

3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?

Sunlight and reading tires me.

4. What creates some relief for the problem?

Sleeping refreshes me. Also using eye lubricating eye drops gives me a little relief from the dry feeling.

5. What triggers the problem into occurring?

Reading, working on the computer.

6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?

I wake up in the morning with heavy, tired feeling eyes. As the day goes by I use lubricating drops so I am a little better. But at night, especially indoors I feel that I have blurry vision in the left eye.

7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?

About a year ago. Lot of stress at home with family. My husband travels extensively and I have 17 year old twin children. I also work outside the home and life is just stressful.

Increased floaters. Was diagnosed with a thinning retina in the left eye.

Also had an attack of shingles on the left side of my face.

1. The specific foods that I crave (not just like) or hate

Crave: Sweets - indian sweets

Hate: Sour food.

2. The specific drinks that I crave or hate

Crave: Coke - on rare ocassions.

Hate: Any drink that is cold.

3. What your sleep is like


4. How the weather and the temperature affects you

I feel cold very easily. The warm weather is better but it tires me out easily.

5. What kinds of things in the environment you are particularly sensitive to


6. What your general level of energy is like

Low. I am always feeling tired.

7. What your level of sexual energy or desire is like


8. Describe your menstrual cycle

Was irregular in the past. But since the past year have been very regular. Flow is medium to heavy. Since the past year have severe backache before periods. Also feel excessively sleepy before periods. Sometimes feel emotionally upset over small things. But I have begun to rationalize the issues on hand and try and control myself if I know that it is time for my periods. I still do get upset but I can calm myself down and control my outbursts. I am a very tidy and disciplined person and little things can be an emotionally upsetting trigger around the time of my period.

Other details:

a) Body type and build

5' 4' Medium build. 150 lbs. On the heavier side.

b) Skin colour and texture

Fair. Skin is very dry on arms, hands and legs. age lines can be seen on the hands now.

**Other details pertinent to problem/life style.

Have hyperthyroidism and take 100mg of Synthroid daily.

My cholesterol levels are very high 260 but my hdl. ldl and triglyceride ratios are ok so far - so am not taking any medications.

Have been having attacks of shingles since January 2012. It affects the left side of my face. I had a big blister with my first attack with a lot of tingling and itching and flu like symptoms.

The first attack left a deep scar on the left side of my face under the nose. After that I have learned to recognize the symptoms and take lysine that is a natural supplement. The attacks have been less frequent since then.

Also have observed an increase in the number of times I have bowel movements in a day. Sometimes I have to go right after I eat something.

Also am having increased burping and burning sensation/discomfort in stomach that feels much better by taking a probiotic. My medical doctor suspects I may have diverticulosis and wants me to have an abdominal and pelvic cat scan done. I want to try homeopathy first.

I have arthritis in my right knee and am unable to walk/exercise for long.

I have tried everything to lose weight but am struggling to keep it in control.

I am generally a positive and happy person. I love to travel and be with friends.

My mother passed of heart disease but she also had melanoma.

My father is healthy and alive.
