For the past several months my mother has been getting black eyes (dark purple, burgandy, black in color) above her eyes; they may be small or like the one she awoke with yesterday morning from the inner corner of her eye to the outer corner in length; and from her eye lashes to her eye brows in height. She has been to her medical doctor who could not explain the reason, so he sent her to her eye doctor. All test results have come back fine, but yet no one can tell us what is causing these bruises /"black eyes". At one point my mother thought is was from the blood vessels breaking when she coughed or sneezed, but again, she was sound asleep and woke up with this nasty black eye (only above her eye, not below) and had not been coughing or sneezing. There is no pain, no headaches, nothing.

We are all dumbfounded on this subject (the same with her doctor).

Any suggestions???
