I’ve luckily never run into dry eye problems myself, but my mother suffers from it. It’s a side effect of her antidepressants.

Dry eyes in general, and Dry Eye Syndrome, are usually a side-effect or a symptom of something else. You get dry eyes when your tear glands can’t produce the necessary number of healthy tears, which leads to a lack of natural moisturization of the eyes, which can cause all sorts of eye problems. Including redness, irritation, itchiness, and pain. If left untreated this condition can lead to serious damage to your eyes.

As for what may be causing your dry eyes, there are a number of potential suspects. Antidepressants may cause it, as mentioned above. It can also be caused by blood pressure medication, antihistamines, birth control pills, Parkinson’s disease medication, and by certain systemic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and Sjogren’s Syndrome.

If you constantly experience dry eyes and are in the Vancouver area, click here to make an appointment with a Vancouver eye doctor.

Hope you will get soon brother :)

we should have prepared better to avoid giving these "protestors" the ability to endanger our community. This is why social distancing is a pathetic excuse for a strategy, it's just the last line of defense when you've defunded and not engaged in any other epidemic containment strategy

From Wikipedia: "...fenugreek is used in traditional medicine to promote digestion, induce labour, increase breast milk supply in nursing mothers, and reduce blood sugar levels in diabetics..."

And it continues: "...there is insufficient scientific evidence that fenugreek has any of these properties."

Hair loss? Sex hormones? Get out.

They resolved to leave means neither of ingress nor egress to the sudden impulses of despair or of frenzy from within. The abbey was amply provisioned. With such precautions the courtiers might bid defiance to contagion. The external world could take care of itself. In the meantime it was folly to grieve or to think. The prince had provided all the appliances of pleasure. There were buffoons, there were improvisatori, there were ballet-dancers, there were musicians, there was Beauty, there was wine. All these and security were within. Without was the "Red Death."
