... and pain and headaches in my left eye is this related as no other cause can be found ? I have also been diagnosed with acid reflux caused by sliding hiatus hernia
Although Retinal Vein Occlusion is not a reported side effect, there is a very small incidence of patients who experienced some form of ocular pain/symptoms, but the likelihood of this is only in the 0.1-1% of all patients who have taken the medication. It seems like something worth considering if there's no other known cause.
Headaches and general body pains are more common side effects. The medication pamphlet advises calling your doctor if you have headaches or eye pain, but if you've already done so you may want a second opinion if symptoms persist and your doctor isn't much help.
Since biologics are still a new medication class, it's likely not all potential side effects are well known yet. There are many biologics available so possibly you could switch and see how you fare.
