Hello, often when we are undergoing mental & emotional stress, our body tends to respond to it by disturbing our sleep & appetite. There are also times when we recognise our resources which help us survive the stress. Wanting to sleep is a way of your body to survive. It would be helpful if you are able to work around the stress by consulting a psychologist who can guide you to develop functional resources.

Hello. Pterygium (Surfer's Eye) most often refers to a benign growth of the conjunctiva. A pterygium commonly grows from the nasal side of the conjunctiva. It is usually present in the palpebral fissure. It is associated with and thought to be caused by ultraviolet-light exposure (e.g., sunlight), low humidity, and dust. Prevention: As it is associated with excessive sun or wind exposure, wearing protective sunglasses with side shields and/or wide brimmed hats and using artificial tears throughout the day may help prevent their formation or stop further growth. Medication: Can take homoeopathic medicine - Calcarea Fluor. 12x/ thrice daily for 4 weeks, then revert back.

Watering, itching and redness of eyes can be due to many reasons and the main reasons are 1. Eye allergy due to dust, pollution, infection 2. Weak eyesight 3. Continuous watching tv, mobile, computor in dim light 4. Any eye injury 5. Lack of sleep 6. Continuous headache 7. Hypertension. So, my suggestion for you is either you provide me the symptoms you are facing due to watering of your eyes or visit a local doctor for an eye check up as a final examination can only be made after physical examination. Meanwhile use following homoeopathic medicines euphrasia 30 (dr reckeweg) drink 2 drops direct on tongue every 2-3 hourly cineraria /euphrasia eyedrops (sbl) pour into eyes 1-2 drops 3 times daily report after 5 days.
