Has Anyone Experienced Inflammation In The Eyes?

Has Anyone Experienced Inflammation In The Eyes?

I developed uveitis in my left eye, but when I tell people about it, it seems that no one has heard of it. So I’m curious if anyone on here has developed it and if it’s a common symptom.

Hi Alyssa! Yes, Uveitis is common with us. People with a lower immunity system will usually contract it. I have friends that build up their immunity with VD3 and Zinc. Are you able to take these supplements? I always check with my family dr. before I add or even try something new. You have to do whats best for your well being. Good luck and Be Safe.

yep! That was the catalyst for my diagnosis. It only happened once in 5 years, THANKFULLY! I had been drinking a lot and generally not taking care of myself before that. I immediately started taking better care of myself and I attribute that to not having another uveitis flare.
