the last few months I’ve increasingly had eye pain and headaches. Now it may well be nothing whatsoever to do with diabetes but just wanted to check with some that have had retinopathy that I can cross this off my list of suspects. I have other suspects including b12, stress, atypical migraine and perimenopause. In September last year (3 months post diagnosis and 9mths ago now) diabetic retinopathy screening was all clear. The pain is a feeling of pressure particularly in the inner areas and top of eye socket, almost like the eye is bruised a bit. Rolling my eyes up into the sockets in a classic and exaggerated eye roll provokes an ache. I also have some visual disturbance that’s hard to put into words. I get migraine with aura. It’s like I am on the verge of that visual aura experience but it lasts hours or all day sometimes whereas for a migraine it’ll come on, make me nearly blind and pass in less than half hour. Its not blind spots or blurred but just wrong. Sound familiar to anyone? Or totally different? My hb1ac at its highest on diagnosis was 55mmol, rapidly dropping to 44 in 3 months and more or less static since. Now I know it was quite quick but not overly dramatic and nothing like the 30mmol suggested by this website as rapid improvement induced retinopathy https://www.diabetes.co.uk/diabetes-complications/diabetic-retinopathy.html. I’ve seen the dr several times and mentioned these headaches in regards to the other suspect causes (and largely been told it’s probably my hormones and do I want hrt or more migraine tabs rather than helped to find an answer). Maybe I need to bring them to their attention specifically if I can’t get to the bottom of it soon myself as it’s becoming increasingly a problem.
