Common Questions and Answers about How to get swollen eyes to go down


Before I went to bed last night my eyes were really red and when I woke up this morning my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span>s were swollen on the top and bottom. What are some ways <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> make the swelling go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span>. I went <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> a heath center today and they gave me some Medicine and it is working but my eyes are still swollen. What are some other things that I can do to prevent the itching and make the swelling go down faster???
But I don't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> here as often as I' d like too. I never had the red swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span>s, except for all the crying LOL. But when I asked my last liver doctor about hte "red palms" he told me it wasn't liver related. Then I saw the doctor at Duke Medical and I just casully asked him. I showed him my red palms and he said YES, it is a sign of liver disaese. They didn't have any studies for me...I was sent by my first liver doctor, because I relapsed.
a good night of sleep do the trick but sometimes it does not work and takes a couple days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> fully go back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span>. I don't know whether <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> a general practitioner/derm/allergist. Please let me know if you have gone to an allergist and found anything else out. Tks!
Did I mention I am so tired that it takes every ounce of strenth I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> up, even after 8 hrs. of sleep!!! I am waiting for my GI appointment, endoscopy and colonoscopy... THIS BRINGS ME to HERE!
1) no i wouldnt consider that 'normal', but i also dont consider it dangerous and have no idea <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go about solving it 2) dont know. the solution is stop going face <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span>, which she cant do b/c of the mac hole repair.
I have found that if I take about four 1,000 mg of vitamin C and four or five Odourless Garlic capsules before I go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> bed I do not wake up with swollen itchy lips and swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span>s. I also find that I can't drink too much Pepermint tea. My sister made some salve out of the Calendula plant and bee's wax and it is wonderful, healing and soothing.
If you have it, you can be treated with antibiotics. I don't want anyone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go through what I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> a diagnosis. My presentation wasn't "typical" Lyme, but there truth is, there is no such thing as typical Lyme symptoms. Some people get arthritic symptoms, and others have neurological, nervous system and/or heart symptoms. Anxiety and panic attacks can be a symptom of an underlying disease, and if you don't start feeling better, I think it's worth further investigation.
Ok..<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> start with , dont toy around with any meds....allow each med to get into your system (around 3 months) and take it from there. What were your last lot of elevsl and how long since RAI? The swelling around the eyeball is NOT from RAI or from the meds. It's also fairly common for your eyes to exhibit mild signs of a condition known as Graves' ophthalmopathy. In Graves' ophthalmopathy, your eyeball bulges out past its protective orbit (exophthalmos).
If they only knew what it takes him <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> up everday and go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> work and try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> function normally. His embarasment over the lesions on his face, neck, hand and arms. Do they think he likes this? how his stomach hurts and when I see him doubled up on the floor and his stomach is swollen. I'm sorry but I have become very angry with people! This forum has been my savior!!
I try to do some light weight lifting and yoga and stretching <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> my muscles back up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> speed. I never realized <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> atrophied my muscle tone got until after tx was done. It was a shock for me to actually realize and feel my muscle weakness. I did not notice some of the minor aches and pains during tx because I was almost always lying down and doing alot of sleeping. I had quite a bit of temporary joint pain after tx (about 3 weeks) especially in my wrists and my right knee....
So if you want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> tested for soy allergy by all means do so, or just cut it out as some suggest it can aggravate a thyroid condition in bigger quantities if you have an allergy to it. You can goole it and read a lot of research on this pro and con. I just bet that many would clear up some chronic conditions if they just found out the offending culprit, but many docs don't know about this themselves like I said - though many dermatologists do.
I don't know whether <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the PCP or wait until I see the surgwon this week. Has anyone else experiened this? I have read that MS does not always show up on a brain scan. I just know this numbness is driving me crazy. I have worked all my life and now I have trouble walking. I am afraid I won't be able to do anything muich longer.
The doctor also told me that if my hisband were called overseas, they would freeze the sperm for me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be able <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> try if he had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go on mission. Hope that helps you some.... I know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> hard it is, but there's hope! Take care.
When i slowly sat trying to keep my leg straight my eyes welled up bc the pain was so intense. I didn't know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> I was going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> deboard. Eventually I did and went to a small emergency care clinic where they x-rayed my knee with negative results. I was given Vicodin and crutches (which I didn't really use) and was told to see my local orthopedic when I return home.
Just next semester and I am done, but my master's major requires a 4-6 year program at a major university, a place which I have NO IDEA <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> I would pay for in the long run. I can cook, clean, wash, lift heavy loads, is polite and sincere, and just LOVE household work, so I am NOT some "couch potato" as they say. Despite my family ridiculing me for being a small and fragile woman, I always enjoyed fixing and cleaning things.
I myself broke out it hives ( i am not allergic to anything) I went into anaphallix (sp?) they couldn't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> stop no matter <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> much antihistamines, epenephrine, i can't take benetryl because it send my heart rate through through the roof. The had been giving me Atarax but it wasn't strong enough. so i gave them the to ahead to give me benedryl but that they would have to give me valium before the benedryl.
Pretty good until right before New Years and uggh, I felt my face start to go again, and then within a week, I found it hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> up and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span> the stairs, numbness now up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> shoulders, and hips. The hip is really uncomfortable. A new problem tinnitus fluctuating between ears and difficulty hearing in background noise. Seeing wavy lines at times too. Present day, more negative test results, more vibrating limbs, unending fatigue.
Because you are taking so much it is hard for us <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> give advice. Have you ever tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> cut <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span> before? You can't go cold turkey unless you are in a hospital. At least discuss your options with the dr. I don't think that they will hospitalize you against your will. Can you ask the dr whether one week or two weeks in a hospital will help? You do get a two week vacation, right?
once I get home, it usually takes several days for all this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> calm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span> and go away. Last time, instead of staying at his house, we stayed in a hotel. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span>s didn't swell. I did break out in hives, but they weren't as bad as usual. Since July, I have seen allergy doctors and regular doctors. I've had allergy testing and blood testing. I've started allergy shots, because I'm apparently allergic to several things.
It is much worse if I have cried, even slightly the day before. The swelling eventually will go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span> if I use compresses but then I am left with loose, crinkly skin. I have tried all sorts of things- no water before bed, elevating my head, eye lubricant(my apt. is dry), clariten. Some days are definitely worse than others. I suspect I have an allergy but how does one figure that out? Also, I will try cutting down on salt.
Well, it's been just silly. I feel better... every day or two...better than I did before. My face is still swollen, along with the rest of me. It's to be expected. I told my nuclear medicine doctor, "Doc after you pushed my TSH over 200+, you are a lucky man I am not a vain person, I just want my eye site back to normal so I can drive." He laughed and agreed he was indeed a lucky man, and simply stated it would be a few more weeks before my eyes would go back to "normal".
i was diagnosed with bih in 2006 and ive been in and out of hospital since i was put on diamox xmas 2006 and i came off it noz 2007 and so far all has been fine no headaches anything and i noticed over the weekend that my left eye ball seems swollen compared <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the right my eye lid is covering more of my left eye due to it being swollen. there is no pain or blurred vision or anything really and i just wondered if this could be anything to do with raised pressure again?
Also if someone knows where I can get this story posted on an HIV website as a column or something so people can send a link <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> their friend that is too scared <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> tested, please let me know. Thank you.
I know it is going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be soon. I just want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> say <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> important it is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> let go if you have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>. I surely want to go and make him get up and run around like we used to. sad can't even explain what I am going through. I love this man so much, and am glad I told him it was okay to go......
But if you get ovarian cancer you're a goner, because its usually pretty asymptomatic until its spread and treatment is difficult. I guess if you start <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> lower abdominal pains and bloating, go along <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the GP and get a pelvic ultrasound. Honestly though, there's so many things that can take you off, I don't really worry much about it. Cheery thoughts for you!
While looking for an answer to my problem, I saw that someone about 7 years ago posted that they had teary and itchy eyes for 2 months after their eye exam. Well, I am in the same situation, going on my second month. I am not allergic to any foods, pollen, etc. I was allergic to something in the 3 different drops that were given in my first eye exam ever. Anybody have any idea what the culprit is? My face was swollen and tingly, my eyelids were extremely swollen.
however I can't find written anywhere that the bacterial infection causes swollen/puffy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span>s. They're getting worse by the day. Recently I had what was thought <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be sillent thyroiditis. After a number of months on anithyroid meds i was taken off them. I then had a precautionary antibody test that found i was positive, and because my grandma had Graves Disease I was told to be vigillant, but otherwise I was fine... Well this has got me a bit worried.
hello, last week i went to get my eyebrow cleaned up, the lady doing the threading asked another woman <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> assist her by holding my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span>. When the woman held my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eye</span>s shut she pressed somewhat hard on my eyeball which i couldnt take more than 6 seconds of. After it was done i went home to check for any noticeable damage or redness and found none except for a soreness behind my eyes. Fast forward 1 week and my eyes are still sore and sunken, is this normal?
I don't think she can handle another dismissal. She wanted me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> ER. I wanted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> bed. By the time all was said and done, evening time now, my right side (leg and arm) are extremely weak. Needed help getting on the degrading. Needed help into bed. Head is still foggy and left eye still feels big and still having blurry vision, on top of my "normal" double vision. I slept like a baby.
I did see an old post that someone called Roberta put on medhelp back in 1999 about her daughter having the same thing. I wrote <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> Medhelp Contact us <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> see if I could track her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span> and talk <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> her, perhaps she might actually know what is wrong with me. She said her daughter had hyperbeta andregenic syndrome, i.e. too much adrenalin but not because of pheo, but her daughter's body was in complete overdrive after the birth.
