Recently I have become incredibly nauseated with painful fullness in the ears and was diagnosed with an inner ear endolympthatic hydrops problem. Head and neck pain too. I even had a test called vemp test which showed how my poor eyes are confused by brain signals due to the inner ear problem making my chronic nausea worse. The doctor wanted to put me on diuretics but my eyes have not only not improved but worsened so I am too scared to do that. Both nausea and dry eye pain are completely unmanageable now. There is no cure. Also can't take any anti-histamines like otc bonine/meclizine used for motion sickness. I am nauseated just sitting here typing this. Reading, writing, tv are all so hard now as nmy nervous system is so sensitive to stimuli. Cant take lexotan in an attempt to relax the nervous system because that family of drugs can cause dry eyes as well. Will see an ear doc I saw about this a few years ago when I had this problem this bad, then he had prescribed serc/betahistine. I dont know how a histamine would affect dry eyes since it is not an anti histamine I guess. Seems like the things that they are most likely to prescribe are the most likely to add to dry eyes and since my problem began with a medication I took for just 2 short weeks, I worry about taking stuff that can add more permanent problems. I cannot afford it but am now not at work because of all this. Any ideas appreciated.
I don't know if this will help you or not but I hav a neuro, pain situation, along with vision problems, dealing with neuro and iuse morphine and other meds which sometimes makes me nauseated and I use promethazine to help with the nausea, I know that when I was 1st on it it kind of knocked me out but now since I have been on it for awhile it does relax me, I am not a dr but had your dr tried something like valium to possibly relax your system, maybe something like that might help, I take that too, their is also some anti-nauseation stuff that wal-mart carries(equate) it is their brand and it is over the counter, I don't know about the dry eyes part on any of it, sometimes you can talk to a pharmacist, you also might check out the natural herb shop. I hope you can find something that can help you soon!
