Not sure what this is about - is this related to a tick born illness?

Sometimes my eyes are also teary and irritated but even if they feel ok the rims are often red.

My sinuses are also acting up more than they should.

Not sure if this is TBI, autoimmune, or the cat. I am trying to figure out the cause so I can treat it. It doesn't seem to correspond with anything. We have a HEPA/VOC air purifier and it doesn't make the slightest bit of difference so it's prob not the cat.

I am still having symptomes of Lyme and babesia, so maybe it's related to that...

thanks

I also think hormones play a role in this. Mine is always worse when other issues are going on like dry eyes, dry skin, etc. I know those things are hormone related.

I also get broken blood vessel marks on the outside lower eye lids. One or more is there everyday and they move around.

I have tons of inflammation, so I'm sure it's just another indication of inflammation in the eyes. I also thinks it's bart sx.

It's mostly due to dehydration.
Start adding electrolytes to your daily fluids.

Electrolyte solution by
Biopure
or
"Selectrolytes" by Morin are good sources.

You will absorb your nutients and meds much better too if you hydrate your cells.

Also, sinus issues are usually mold/candida related.

Not dehydration with me. I'm a water freak. I don't go anywhere without it.

Not water...water runs right through and alone will not hydrate cells, no matter how much you drink.
Need electrolytes, and minerals.

Try if for a time and see if it helps.

Thanks for all the responses...

I have a condition where my eyelids are producing too much oil (called meibomianitis) but even treating it I am still having the red rims.

I think this condition (meibomiantitis) in itself must be lyme related for me somehow...it got a lot worse when I relapsed..

I am sure I am mineral deficient since I am starting the KPU protocol, so maybe that will help

Look under blipheritis online. It's an inflammation of the eyelid due to makeup, dry skin etc that gets under the eyelid. Don't think it has anything to do with lymes as it is very common. Def. go to an eye doctor for a diagnosis. Just soak your eye and rub gently with a warm water compress 4x untill it clears up if it is that. Many, many people have this. You may have to do it 1x daily to make sure it doesn't come back.

Would recommend Allergie immmune therapy before you try KPU.

The allergie immune test will tell yu what your blockages are and correct the blockages so you can actually have the KPU work...and other remedies work.

Your eyes are a strong indicator of underlying conditions..
