It seems like I get blood work done every time I go to the doctors.

You must have really good insurance or a really concerned doctor.  I hope you will not have to have blood drawn on your next visit.

Both actually.  Hopefully won't need to, but likely yes lol.  How are your doing?

Thank you. This is the 3rd neurologist I've seen and he says I will be fine.  I've been having electrical shock sensations in my eyes for awhile now.  Had an MRI done and all the blood work all seems to be normal.  Now using eyedrops almost hourly and eye gel before I go to sleep for dry eyes.  The feelings aren't as bad lately.  One neurologist even said benign vertigo.  That definitely was a new one on me.

I have severe dry eye due to Graph vs Host Disease.  

There are lots of options for dry eye.  Tear duct cauterization (doesn't hurt as bad as it sounds, lighter than a bee sting), Lacriserts, eye gel drops (vs eye drops) (Walmart has a generic version that I like) and Prose contact lens. And I love the Systane Nightime with mineral oil in it.  

Hope you feel better.  And I feel your pain about the blood work.
