I really need help on this one guys. Since my mother came back from a trip to California she has been troubled with swollen eyes. The area is above her eye lids and under the eye brow and that whole area is definitely visually swollen, she says sometimes it’s under her lower eye lid also. There’s no other symptoms of pain or anything else. She has seen so far a primary doctor, a neurologist, and eye doctor. Primary doctors wasn’t sure what it was, neurologist believed it didn’t pertain to the brain or neurology, the eye doctor said it had nothing to do with her eyes. My mom has also taken blood tests and a facial cat scan to check for sinus infection and nothing was prevalent in either test, however the only thing found was deviation septal which apparently had nothing to do with the swelling. Please guys I feel terrible for my mom, its very depressing for her to see herself with those swollen eyes every morning. The person who is able to help me solve this medical mystery will truly receive my thanks and all my blessings.

  • I suffer from some kind of digestive disease that is undiagnosed at the moment. Last year this was one of my symptoms, it was extremely painful. They knew it had to do with whatever else was going on but they never figured it out. I was prescribed Toborax an eye steroid that helped with the pain it can only be taken for 12 days safely though.

  • Addressing the last reply she doesn’t have any pain but thanks anyways. Latest update: After seeing multiple doctors with different specialties the simplest suggestion has helped. My mom has been taking Benedryl which is for allergies and so far we have seen improvements. The area above her eyes has calmed down drastically. We will see if it completely subsides. She also has been applying cold blind folds to cool the area.

  • I have suffered from swollen eyes for over 13 years.Although I have kidney disease, I believe there is more to it.14 years ago I had an old root canal leak and my face started to swell. Some dental materials are highly toxic. I got my tooth fixed however, by this time I had chronic kidney infections and sinus infections. My face still swelled and I had chronic fatigue and fibro mialgia.I went to several hospitals and saw 100s of doctors--including Mayos 3 times.The doctors put me on lasix to control the swelling in my face, however, that agrevates my kidneys and caused kidney infections. Therefore, they gave me massive doses of antibiotics. This cured my kidney infections.I then had to deal with the chronic fatigue from swelling, the lasix, and the antibiotics. I also suddenly became allergic to any and all make up, almost all facial cleansers and lotions, noodles, rice, soy sauce, worchestershire sauce, terriyaki, and citric acid. I ALSO SWELL ALMOST EVERY TIME I SLEEP IN A HOTEL--I am not sure if it is the ventilation, the construction material, or the bedding.I am doing much better these days and lead a much more normal life, however my recovery took years. Here is what I suggest.1. Make sure her teeth have no silver, lead, mercury, or furmalgahyde (spelling) and that there are no failing root canals or absesses.2. I sleep on Nikken magnets. I have a magnetic mattress and pillow. I also have magnetic insoles and a necklace. I used to spend $50.00 every two weeks on electrogalvanic eye treatments just so I could stand light. After 4 years of $1,200 per year, I finally spent a one time amount $1,200. That has been 4 or 5 years ago.3. Check for any liver or kidney disease or low grade recurring urinary infections.4. Right now I take lasix, potassium, and fat soluable vitamin C with my vitamins from Unicity. I am looking to change medications to something more natural and less damaging to the body. But you can ask your doctor if any of this could work for you. I do not suggest any cortison or steroids--these help but there are serious side affects.5. I often use an eye cream from Arbonne that reduces swelling and I am not allergic to it. Exuviance also makes a nice product with cotton pads soaked with cucumber and eucalyptus.6. Bring your own pillows on the road.7. Wash hair every night. I work in a barn so the dust aggrevates my face if I don't wash it out of my hair. If your mother was allergic to the smog or something, she may have needed to wash her hair more.I hope this helps you out. There are no easy answers that I have foundGood luck

  • Kidney problems may be worth checking out... Swollen eyes in the morning (and hands and feet other times) apparently is a symptom. All the best to you and your Mom.

  • WE HAVE ANSWERS TO MY HUSBANDS SWOLLEN EYES! First noticed the problem May 2008, finally the 8th doctor had the proper diagnosis! My husbands eyes would swell in the area above the eyelid, and below the eyebrow. Also under the lower eyelid. Some swelling in other areas of the face but not nearly as noticable. They would be worse in the morning than in the evening. He was diagnosed with Morbihan's Disease. This was confirmed by biopsies of the forehead area. If you are searching with no answers, this was actually diagnosed by a opthamologist. It is a very rare disease and we were just blessed that this doctor is the type that continues to learn and research and take a sincere interest in his patients. An extrordinary physician that we thank God for. Now we are awaiting a treatment plan. I would like to hear from anyone with Morbihan's Disease. morbihansinfo@sbcglobal.net

  • If after all she has done and haven't received many answers, you might give this crazy thing a try. It is called EFT (emotional Freedom Therapy), and YouTube has a lot of videos on how to do it by mostly amateurs, but they are still effective. This technique has helped every single one of my clients who i have prescribed it to. Asthma has been alleviated 100%, allergies eliminated 100%, depression gone 100% and I have heard of other clinicians using it for MS and ALS with more positive results than medical treatments (not that they should stop the medical treatments). Give it a try, and am sure it will work

  • I too suffered from swollen upper eye lid. Eventually looked like spaghetti under my skin. Turned out after a CAT scan with DYE that I did not have a sinus infection or thyroid problems but carotid cavernous fistula. Only the dye showed the problem and then a neurologist entering the area through an artery in my groin. My sight has been saved as well as my brain.

  • Any swelling can easily be addressed by yourself and patience is required to get the results. Great people have proposed fine theories. Modern system take those theories and make it complicated to dignose with names and sell drugs. Go to the teachings of "Osteopathic" founder, Andrew Taylor Still. Now start learning to 'milk tissues'. Problems get controlled. It works because I have solved many cases with my hands all kinds of swellings. In 15 minutes you can reduce the swellings by more than 50 perc. Daily work at it for a couple of times and problem will be cleared in a couple of days. The lymph fluid is backlogging and you use your finger knucke to do the job. Put slight pressure on the edges of the bulge and milk away from the bulge. You will definitely feel the difference. I guarantee you that. When problem is solved share your success stories with others.Contact me if anyone wants further info. PArjuna85210@yahoo.comSo many people in this thread are suffering from this problem unnecessarily. Remember, knowledge is power and ignorance is expensive.Dont drug the body or cut the body. Your body is a gift to you from Heavenly Father. Use it with utmost care.Remember the famous quotation of Hippocrates, the Father of modern medicine, "A wiseman ought to realize that health is his most valuable posession." My interpretatation to that is dont drug the body unnecessarily and lose your valuable posession.Good luck to all of you.Garla Arjuna.
