My eyelids are drooping/swelling so bad to where they are laying heavly on my eyelashes. To where I want to tape them up. I haven't used or changed anything in my life. It just started two days ago.

  • I am no expert - but every time I take aspirin or Advil, Aleve, etc. my eyes swell shut - looks like a golf ball with lashes. It is sime type of allergy. Tylenol does not do this to me. Have you been taking any of that?

  • I take tylonal but not Advil. No swelling under or around the eyes just the lids.

  • Please do some research on Ocular Myasthenia Gravis (MG) I have had this disease for 16 years and my eyelids are swollen daily. Good Luck
