Pain Pain Pain Until Help Came

I went three years before I was diagnosed with scleritis.  First it was allegies, then when it got worse it was episcleritis and then finally scleritis.  Most of the inflammation was behind the eye where the doctors couldn't see.  The front of my eye seemed fairly clear (when taking pred-forte or Lotemax), therfore I felt the doctors thought it was all in my head, until I met Dr. Chu.  He believed me, put me on cellebrex and my eyes are not painfull anymore (well most of the time).  I still have to use lotemax but much less of it.  I am very thankful to Dr. Chu.

Thats wonderful that you found the right docter! it must have been frustrating not having the other doctor believe you.
