For me it came on relatively suddenly and felt like an intense ache/sharp poking that didn’t let up. I was extremely sensitive to the light too but my eye was also red (not super red, but definitely irritated looking). I didn’t have any dryness with it but I kept my eye closed as much as possible too until I got to my eye doctor’s office.
