Hey guys,

When I was 15 years of age I was diagnosed with Mono as well as extremely low white blood cell levels. The reason is because one day I woke up and looked in the mirror and saw that I had massive bags under my eyes which were never there before.. Now, for the past six years, these bags have been under my eyes.. No matter what I do they are there. Does this indicate kidney damage? It doesn't matter if I go to the doctor, they act like I'm stupid for even asking, but it has caused me a massive amount of stress trying to get rid of these things.. It seems like they will be there for the rest of my life, and its extremely unfortunate, because aside from these bags I seem to be at full health. Only problem is that I'm SURE that these are a sign of something wrong, they werent there before, I can remember the exact day that they formed.. Yet doctors seem to think they are normal.. Does anyone agree that I might be going undiagnosed for some form of condition?

And yes, I know the tricks that you guys will want to tell me, lots of sleep, drink lots of water, eye excercises, cold compresses.. I don't care about any of that stuff, none of it does anything. And the bags aren't genetic, no one else in my family has them, I'm the only one on both sides of the family who seems to have these stupid debilitating frustrating hunks of flesh under my eyes.

Hope someone has some input! Thank you!
