Ocular myositis

Lately I have had a lot of pain in one eye and sensitivity to light. This has led me to discover Ocular Myositis which describes a rare inflammatory disorder of eye muscles. I thought I would include it here due to it containing the word 'Myositis' even though it is not associated with other forms of Myositis.

The main symptoms of Ocular Myositis are severe orbital pain and diplopia (double vision) caused by eye movement.  It can affect 1 or more of the eye muscles.  In most people there may be orbital discomfort but no additional signs of the condition.

All symptoms of ocular myositis include severe pain in the eye, difficulty moving the eye, a swollen eyelid and sensitivity to light and diplopia.

Ocular myositis may occur with other conditions such as sinusitis, cellulitis,  lymphomas and immune disorders, including "sarcoidosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, Crohn′s disease, giant cell arteriitis, and linear scleroderma." (; ).

  3. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no
    backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

  5. Unfortunately, conventional medical treatments typically involve taking anti-inflammatory drugs like cortisone that simply mask the pain instead of actually healing it.

    orbital/ocular myositis IS a form of myosisti- the symptoms are just very different and far more complicated to handle. I was diagnosed in 2006 and I can assure you it is a type of myositis- not very much is known about it.
