    Peripheral Neuralgia, 6th Nerve Palsey

    Oct. 2015 I got shingles. It got into my right eye
    and damaged my 5th and 6th cranial nerves resulting
    in 6th nerve palsey and leaving me blind in my right
    eye. I can see light but can't make out objects enough
    to know what they are. My eye is very sensitive
    to light and I have to wear sunglasses when I go out.
    I also have peripheral neuralgia. I have a lot of pain with
    it. It feels like shock waves. My cornea consultant had my eye sewn almost half shut. The pain usually starts in the lower middle or outside corner of my eye and travels up feeling like it is coming out of the top of my head. The
    whole right side of my head feels like a huge risen.

    I have kind of a curious question. A couple weeks ago I got an earache in both ears. Went to the doctor and he said I had infections in both ears. He prescribed drops. I have to do 4 drops in each ear twice a day. My husband helps me. When he puts the drops in my right ear, I can feel it in my right eye. It doesn't hurt, just feels funny. This doesn't happen with my left ear. Is it happening because of the nerve damage on my right side?
