Submitted: 2 years ago.

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 years ago.
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

For how long are you having this problem?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are your eyes red and itchy as well?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you ever experienced such symptoms in the past as well?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Please let me know.

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

Just about a couple of hours ago ,my eyes are just stinging and red they do not itch, had similar condition several years ago

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Sounds like your eyes were irritated by something.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Something that your eyes may have been sensitive to.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

How is your vision?

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

Vision is ok

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You will most likely require an anti-inflammatory eye drops

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Something like dexamethasone eye drops for your eyes.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This is not over-the-counter so you will have to visit your doctor to get it.

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

Iwas more concerned about the feelings in my body

Dr. Shahzad MD :

That cold stinging feeling all over the body?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Sorry I misread your initial question, I just thought you said stinging feeling only in your eyes.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

considering all your symptoms you could be having a viral infection causing your eyes to be red and also your other symptoms.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So that is the most likely reason as far as I am concerned.

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

I asked what could cause a cold stinging feeling throughout my body

Dr. Shahzad MD :

considering all your symptoms you could be having a viral infection causing your eyes to be red and also your other symptoms.
Most likely reason for the cold stinging feeling is a viral infection.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This should go away in due course of time.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you with me?

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

The symptoms seem to be easing could it have been caused by something I ate, too much chocolate?

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

I have not had a reply to my question

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It could have been something you ate

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Possibly related to allergy

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Sorry for the late reply.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So it is either allergy or a viral infection.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

In either case i.e. allergy or viral infection, it does not sound like anything serious. However, I would still like that you should be seen at least by your GP just to be sure.

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

I am disappointed with your service and certainly would not be expected to pay £24 for your service??

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I am sorry that you feel that way

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This session is open for any number of further questions and clarifications that you may have

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So you can ask more questions until you are satisfied

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

Am I entitled to atleast part refund?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You can have a full refund if you wish

Dr. Shahzad MD :

But this session is open for any number of questions that you may have

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Or at least you can let me know why you were not satisfied so that I can address that part with you.

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

As a pensioner I would appreciate very much Thank you

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Can you please let me know why you were not satisfied

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

I felt I did not much help,

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I am still here to help you.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I mean if you need more help or if you have more questions I will be more than glad to help you out.

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

What further explanation can you give me?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Do you have any other medical problems?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you on any medications for anything?

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

No

Dr. Shahzad MD :

When you had this condition several years back, how long did it last?

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

Several hours

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You mentioned this stinging feeling all over the body, are there any specific parts of the body that are more affected than other parts?

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

No just allover

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is the feeling superficial or you feel as if it is arising from deep inside?

JACUSTOMER-wm4qsf8w- :

Superficialas we dont seem to be getting can we settle for a 50percent refund

Dr. Shahzad MD :

ok fine. I will send your question to the website.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Take care

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Goodbye

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Sorry for being late answering as I have been out. The problem started about 3am when I was lying in bed , it went after about 4 hours .Now I feel ok ,apart from being rather tired as i did not get much sleep,!! But it was somewhat discerning when I had it. Probably the price one pays for getting Old.

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 2 years ago.
HI
Actually this sensation can be from many causes
iron deficiency
B vitamin deficiencies.
Blood diseases
Allergy [most common]
Parasites
Hidden infection
Heavy metals
Alcohol toxicity
Liver or kidney problems.
And other causes.
If it happened once, comes and goes, it is more likely allergy.
But any good internal medicine doctor can rule out the other causes quickly.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
