I have posted in the past about my health. I have thought that there was something wrong with me for a while now about a year I would say. Well, I finally went to the eye doctor. I have been having a headache every day for the past year. My doctor says that I am fine. But the eye doctor says that I need glasses for driving which is odd to me because I have always had good eyes. She also told me that there was pressure behind my eyeballs. That is why I have headaches every single day. Well, they are going to do a cat scan she said. That is scaring me a bit. What do you guys think? I need some input. My mother had a brain tumor so that is going through my head. In all reality all my bones and muscles have hurt for the past year. I am only 24 so I do not think that too much could be wrong. My doctor ran blood tests on me and said that I am just fine. And I thought that would clear my mind, but when the eye doctor told me about this pressure build up that changed. Anyone else had pressure behind their eyes? Should I be worried?

I'm not positive but I know glaucoma is related to pressure in the eyes. I don't know if that's the same as the pressure behind the eyes. My husband is having problems with his eye pressure. It's borderline. He has to go in for periodic tests to make sure the pressure hasn't increased, because once it does they'll start treating him with drops for glaucoma. His younger sister had eye problems too.

Someone else told me something like that last night. I hope that is not what it is though. I am not ready for all of that. They are gonna do more pics and tests on me. So I hope that it is not that bad.... Thank you for the input..=)
