Pain in one eye
I have searched previous posts and can't find any with my symptom. I often have pain in my right eye when I wake up. It is sore and hurts if I put any pressure on it (eg, while washing my face with a flannel) It usually clears up after a few hours but today I can still feel a little pain. Can it be due to pressing my eye on my arm while I am asleep or could it be something more serious.

Carrie, I doubt that it is due to your arm, but I suppose it is possible. The problem i that it might also be due to an eye problem like glaucoma and this is why the best would be to see an ophthalmologist and make sure that it isn’t due to something serious. Good luck.
